In tailoring the jacket is King, trousers get short shrift from tailors and customers alike. So many ill-fitting trousers out and about.

Oxxford pants should fit even the largest thighs. On slim pants--Borrelli, Prada, Jil Sander, etc--it's that my calves are too big.

From your pic, you seem to be in decent shape, but one would never be able to tell. But more than that, I don't like them much for the same reason we don't like sleeves that are too long and overstated shoulders in a jacket.

Specifically, I like the color. But I could sum up all my nit-picky comments into one: they look like pants made for someone much larger than you.

But it could just be me. I need every advantage I can get, so I'm pretty fussy about how things fit. Others, they can wear anything and still look good. I hate it when they do that!


I see where are you are going. Like I said, I'm going to try some better trousers as a sort of scientific experiment to see if they look any different (I'm sure it's possible that they will feel better). Hmm, this has really got me thinking actually now about how pant fit affects the overall way that the proportions of your body (e.g., upper body compared to lower body appear).
