Not feeling too well today but I had to come in to teach anyway. As a result today's fit is a bit meh.
Deets: chocolate brown tweed jacket, dark brown wool waistcoat, knitted tie (all vintage), cheap J-crew blue micro-gingham shirt. Not seen: olive/grey heringbone wool trousers and dark drown suede monks.
I was trying to help constructively, You do dress exceptionally well almost all of the time. As you and "they" say, the chino's don't drape, but they look quite robust and masculine, even if not as suave as your upper body dressing.
I have taken the trouble to edit the pic you posted to show what i mean, also I see that NYRanger has got his trousers to a fine art in terms of break (and cuff). Best is that "they" (n0n-n00bs) seem to like it long as well, or at least they don't seem to hate what NYR has done, or know what they like TBH. I somehow think the group "bashing" frenzy kinda took over and they all had a bite.. oh well. ASPD
Thanks. It's just that I don't like how cuffed trousers look with a break, in fact these pants tend to ride down a little over the course of the day and I hate how that makes the bottoms look messy. The optimal solution would be slanted cuffs but these require bespoke, I think. I like more of a classic break with uncuffed trousers though.
I posted some pics in the tailors' thread, there you can see the pants aren't really that tapered; they have a quite classic cut, with a 8.6" leg opening, and that's how I like it
the reason u were LOL'd out of town
I think Despos said the pattern needs to be adjusted, so new pants can be done with slanted cuffs but finished pants can't be altered to have them. I could be wrong though.
I think it (3pc with short trousers and no socks) would look better if the trousers were much more tapered. I still wouldn't like the look myself, but I do think it would look more complete in itself.
With respect, sir, maybe that's all some people want to know. Sure, if you want feedback on how your trousers fit or whatever, fair enough, but sometimes you might just be sharing a colour/texture combo idea, or whatever. I guess people also have different thresholds of privacy. The chances of my posting my face on here are slim to zero, which is probably a blessing to all. But also, if I'm going to be pedantic (and this is the place!), then holding a phone in one hand and putting the other in your pocket doesn't help the silhouette much either!
Apart from that, I like your jacket. Those are some big F-O lapels/collar spread; I don't know if I would go there, but it looks great on you.
