i think stanley's suit is pretty decent for OTR apart from the trouser length and fullness in the thigh, and he's said he's going to take care of that
no expert on all this MC stuff but i think a knitted tie would look good here

SVB the suit is not that bad. the quarters are a little too close for my taste though. What kind of knot is that? I think a four-in-hand or a dobule four-in-hand would be better for you since you have a thin frame and a small head. A dimple would have also helped tremendously. as for the bunching at the bottom,  widenining the opening might help.

Or it could be because they're not gunboats. teacha.gif

I would make your belt tighter. If you're used to wearing lower rise jeans / khakis, you're probably used to having the belt only tight enough that your pants rest on your hips. With higher rise suit pants, the belt actually needs to "cinch" in order to keep the pants suspended at the right place.

Thanks for all the input on the suit again, guys; I do think it'll be much improved by fixing the pants and I'm glad I had this pointed out to me.

 

FWIW, the tie knot is a standard Windsor (not the half) and that's what I'll be sticking with since I feel like it's really a matter of preference -- sure, there's an aesthetic argument to be made for one type of knot over another, but it's a really minimal one -- I don't like how the 4IH looks nor do I like dimples.

 

I do think a knit tie could have worked well with that combo too though.

Is it the weight of the fabric more, or just the inseam length? Or pehaps both characteristics are of influence. To add, if you look at the side profile, you may see that the pants actually drape pretty nicely. It seems that always from the front POV, you will notice more how the hem falls on the shoes or slightly off center causing bunching and wrinkling up the shin. I hate that so much, but majority of MC'ers seem to have perfected their individual cut / favorite length.

Circumference (width) or taper of the pants should also effect the way pants fall on shoes as the more extreme tapers require a shorter inseam. ugh

 

Yeah, I'd like some thoughts on this as well. Some guys in MC always have perfectly straight creases on their pants in photos. I don't know how they achieve this without someone straightening their pants for them before each photo. I'm not able to get this effect. If I bend over to try to straighten them out, they invariably shift again when I stand up. The only thing I can think of is that the guys who wear much fuller-cut pants are the ones achieving this and it's simply due to that fact and nothing else. I've got pants in much heavier materials, and I have 2" cuffs on all of them to try to weigh them down but it just hasn't quite worked.

 

I'm hoping that narrowing the thigh & seat area may actually help but I'm still flying blind on this issue.

The pants on my Ann suit are quite wide and stay perfectly creased no matter what.  It's actually pretty cool.

ime, heavier fabric can help pants hang better, but good construction and sewing are just as important. even with a heavy fabric, if the pattern is not cut well (or cut for your body type) or the sewing is uneven, it will throw off the whole "line". with dress pants, I try to find something that hangs well from the start even if I'll be narrowing or shortening, because alterations cannot always fix something if it's off from the start.
