I'm not too crazy about the cropped pants but I think with that jacket you should tie it behind you, instead of wrapping it around and fastening it that way. I think you know what I mean, there will be 2 loops on your back side, one to the left and one to the right. Only have the belt through those two loops and then just tie it behind you, so it cinches the waist a bit but not like it is now. I think it would look really good that way. you just have to be ok with the straps hanging behind you.
Cheers. I've not tried tying the belt that way, but It works with my Barbour International. I might give it a go, but I kind of like the visible belt - always had a hankering for a decent tweed Norfolk Jacket...

Thanks. Jacket is last season's - I picked it up from Sa-kis, but there are a few stockists of BdP around and they regularly use the same blue. It's lightly padded and too warm for most of the year.

No sock tuck today (but I've been playing with it and am determined to get it to work at somepoint )

Thanks. First time I'd cropped pants with a winter fit - I generally liked it when Mellow did it so thought I'd give it a go. Not too unhappy with how it came out, but It needs more experimentation.
no they are mainline ("pernice") wide trousers in a very light-weight, slightly textured wool and they do actually taper a bit down to 7.25" but it doesn't appear to be very sharp one when worn. i will do them justice in a fit later on
I was actually talking about the Epaulet trousers, but didn't quote the picture since I didn't realize you were in the midst of making the same post 12 times.
My WAYWT: hat edition (unfortunately, I ended up cropping off the hat in most of the pics due to forgetting that I needed to put more distance between myself and the camera. Found out after I had left the house. Ah well!)
