HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 1998  

post #29956 of 78723
On this whole "flat" versus pleated front business, my question is why not pleats also in the back?

On most guys, this could improve their gait since their knees could go higher with each step.

And the twirls would be magical.

I think that this is iroh's method to turn black pants into charcoal gray.

First of all, pleats serve an important function on trousers. Without them, pants tend to bunch up horizontally above the crotch, to a particularly atrocious effect when sitting.

What if you have clip-on suspenders?

pls stop talking about shoes. foo.gif many thanks

Right, because that's how all pleated pants look today...and stuff. Way to stay relevant with your comparisons.

Second, pleats are classic to both English (forward pleats) and Italian (reverse pleats) tailoring. A nice suit from a good bespoke tailor is far more likely to be pleated than flat front. You'd have to really argue against your tailor's better sensibilities to get him to make you the latter. In my mind, flat front is the hallmark of the disgusting "slim-fit" RTW trouser. I have no idea why anyone would see that as a paradigm.

 

 

I do not agree!

 

All depends on the human figure.


 Any options pants are good if they are suitable for you. And the one fold, and with two folds and no folds.
 

It's very Idividualny.

 

I tried different versions of bespoke trousers.

 

And for me the most suitable shape - it wrinkle-free.

 

Last 50-60 pairs of pants, I ordered a bespoke only without the folds.

 

 In my sport legs, narrow waist, the folds are not relevant. It is a pity of course. After all, they are the correct and classical. But to me they fit much worse than those without wrinkles.

 

So for me the most appropriate - pants without pleats.

And this is not a whim, but simply a selection of my figure.

 

 

However, I agree with you that most people are better suited bespoke trousers with pleats than pants without pleats.

 

I just, alas - of the minority. frown.gif

What the hell... those aren't just pleated pants, they are ugly-as-hell pants. There's no way on Earth all pleated dress pants look like that.

These would go well with the SW&D crowd if the models were wearing white sneakers.
