But in those cases, it is not the pleats that ruin the pants. It's the pants generally sucking.

Why did you decide to put flap pockets on this jacket, Vic?
Donegal seems to cry out for patch pockets, no? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
It's a gorgeous piece either way. I'm only asking because I'm just starting to experiment with MTM sport coats and I'm trying to learn the customs and protocols.

not in my book.

For shoes, just pick something less square and that isn't black. Assuming you changed nothing else about this outfit, I would pick ones that are dark brown or burgundy.

ah yes, the life of the "imperfectly built." tbh, im not at a point yet that i even considered the width of my lapels. i buy whay i think fits ok, and what i like, i have yet to have the financial freedom to be that astute with my clothing. but it will be something to at least be mindful of, thanks.

however, in the fit from yesterday, although that jacket was terrible fit wise imo, the lapels were wider, and i felt like it looked ichy. were those any better iyo, just the lapel, not the rest of the fit, i know it was off.

as to shoes, interesting, i assumed with all the black in the pants, jacket and tie, that brown shoes would look out of place.

I like both flat front and pleats. I own both and I like both of them equally. Although I own more flat fronts than pleats.shog[1].gif

Also agreed. Sounds like the noob who settles for the simplest things that comes to mind with his limited views.

I have suggested to tailors that they would be able to get rid of lots of old ideas, outmoded experience and hidebound tradition if only they would only spend more of their apprenticeship learning on the internet instead of the workroom.

There is black in your jacket, but since it is peppered with white and gray, it comes off as grayish overall. This is always the case with black-and-white weaves. "Gray" herringbones, houndstooths, and plaids are often actually a mix of white and black threads.

If those trousers are black, they should be burned.
