Didn't notice this comment before. Yeah, it's tight. It's made to be tight. The thing was made in the 70's. Glance at a few catalogs from that era, that fit was rather in. Very tight crotch and seat, and a weird shape in general. As somebody who wasn't alive then, I can only assume that fashion designers were trying to encourage more sexual openness with that cut. Also, I don't think it's really obvious in those pics, but the trousers also have a slight bellbottom.
It's not something I wear seriously, obviously. At least as a suit. I've been known to break the jacket out as a sportcoat on occasion. If you want someone to blame, Anderson Little made the thing. The guy who runs them now posts here.
Freezing this morning. Thanks for your comments yesterday, the tie was a Borrelli 65/35 cashmere silk, and the cufflinks were my fathers. Sorry no good pics, but early morn meetings and Mrs. Spoo still in bed. Hermes wool/silk tie courtesy of MalfordofLondon Watch the gap ala UrbanComposition
