I dunno, if he's insisting on pleats when they won't even be visible under your apron, I'm thinking 'anal' might be spot-on. Or maybe he's just clueless and said 'pleats' when he really meant 'cuffs'? Did he specify cuffed or uncuffed?

Glad I'm not the only one....

By the way, make sure you express yourself with more than the minimum number of pleats. After all, look at Bryan, he has 37 pleats,

O/T: I just saw the lead guy from 'Office Space' in a promo for something -- I don't remember if it was a tv thing or a movie. But it was so weird seeing him in a straight dramatic role. Even though he wasn't overtly funny in that movie -- it's just the association.

If I remember right it is a show called "saved" or something like that. If I remember the premise, and there is a good chance I do not, as I tend not to focus much on TV commercials, he is an EMT and saves lives or something. Maybe he plays the same guy, he couldn't go on cleaning up after the fire forever!!

I'll have to take your word for it. It's hard for me to tell from the picture. Beware, though. I'm pretty sure an "inverted" pleat is like a box pleat, with the "box" on the inside of the pant, or "inverted."

It doesn't look like it from the website. Besides, you very rarely see an inverted box pleat on pants. Apparently a place in my town called DC Athletic Inc. carries them so I can check them out for myself. I left a message asking them to call me back about what colours and sizes they have since they weren't there. Hopefully this'll work out for me.

Then I wish my fellow Gator good luck!
