Yes, his waist isn't narrow enough for slimmer pants, let alone a slimmer cuff opening. I think this can be seen better from the side angle. A surefire way to know if one should have pants slimmed is if they have to have the jacket slimmed at the waist down to the vent(s).

For the record, the side view would look a bit different today. I've lost 25 lbs. since those pics were taken...

In other news, Vox is the CBD killer today:

sb, I didn't mean to insult you. It's just some suits/cuts/coats/figures require a fuller pant. Congrats on teh weight loss.

No offense taken at all, just wanted the debate to proceed based on current facts! lol8[1].gif

Cool. I think gdl has seen the wisdom in my post, tho.

What Vox has on above is exactly what I am wearing right now as well. Except my tie is a silver grendadine garza fina.

I have no idea what this means. If you don't see it, then you don't - that's OK with me

Sure - but not this one. Coat is lean with clean lines everywhere.

Even more relevant if subarbutch lost so much weight - there's no point swimming in his pants

You're losing it, bro. Did you not see that sleevehead/back of the coat? The fact that the jacket seemed to hide extra weight? (confirmed by butch's comment above re weight loss). What you suggested he do is tantamount to when that youngun here had his DB nipped/slimmed and hilarity ensued. Think about it.

Edit: I just realized that what I say is frequently cut so short that the point is frequently missed so allow me to elaborate:

Sorry bro (I feel like Foo here) where do you see clean lines everywhere? Do you not see the bulge created by the pocket square (meaning too tight in the chest) and the subsequent pulling at the middle button?
583

the sleevehead situation and the vast folding in the rear of the coat?
583

Also, if the jacket fell straight down in the profile pic (say, from the buttoning point down) or, fell how it did because it was too big, then he would need the jacket slimmed and having the pants also slimmed would be a no-brainer. Not the case here I'm afraid.

If you still don't get it, ah well. TEHO

EDIT: To Each His Own.

As someone who's been through slimming pants in response to SF comments only to have them all let out again, I'd advise you proceed cautiously. SF has a real preference for slimmer pants. After experimentation, I have a strong preference pants full enough to fill the bottom of the jacket tapering cone-shaped to the shoe. I find it more comfortable and more elegant, but to each his own. Looking at the photos, I would taper the pants slightly from the knee and shorten just a bit.

I told you that time not to slim them.

Your admonitions need to be given the force of law.

Overall, there is too much thought given to re-tailoring on SF. It is one thing to alter something to alter to fit, and quite another to re-tailor something stylistically.

The latter requires a tailor with a bespoke temperament and background, or a very able tailor who gets clear instructions from a customer with a discerning and an unconfused eye. The latter ain't happening for most, and the former suggests economies that would daunt many.

I've since tatooed on my arm "Always listen to Ed."

The tailor I used is actually a bespoke tailor who has made me a couple of very nice jackets, and the job he did was very good. The look just didn't suit me.

I admit being perplexed at how you had your pants narrowed, but then could have them let out again. Did your tailor keep the seam allowances because you were experimenting?

Yes, he did. I asked him to.
