Stitch,

 

I hope you know it was my "like" that put your last fit into double digits.

In the case of MTM, we measure the inseam and then the rise based on how high I want to wear them. I hate sagging. As for break, it depends on hem width. No break on my 8 1/4" hems, shivering break on my 9" hems and "half break" on anything wider. It varies throughout the day anyways, not that I care much...

that is only true if you wear pants with different rises on different point of your waist. i wear all my pants on the same point of my waist, with maybe a variance of 1/4 inch. so in my case, the outseam is fixed. a variance in inseam will only affect how much the crotch drops/sags, for me. ask clapey, he will tell you all about it!

That is the main (though not the only) point of rise measurement - to define where on your waist they're going to sit. Ideally, the amount of sag should be the same on all trousers (as much as you prefer for comfort), and if you like them to sit on the same point of your waist they should always have the same rise. I tolerate a wide range of "waist positions", but if a RTW pair has too high of a rise even for me, I just won't buy it, rather than have it sag, which I think looks sloppy. Once you have found your perfect measurements, both inseam and outseam should stay fixed. Outseam/inseam balance is also useful to correct for bow leggedness or knock knees...

 

BTW, I'm not implying you have this problem on your last fit - I think a lower button stance on the jacket would help more than less sagging on the trousers, but that's a different issue.

indeed. my preferred rise has about a 1 inch variance, so technically, my inseam is also pretty fixed. but since i do buy ready to wear, in reality my rise might vary by up to an inch and a half or so. because of that, and because i always wear my pants on the same point of my waist, i use the outseam when i have my tailor do my pants.

i understand i am in the minority on this one, and that most people do not treat rise/inseam/outseam the way i do.

Imo, SS has brings great fits and generally looks pretty cool, just tries to hard, it's not natural style or flow at this point. I'm sure it will be on day.

What it stinks of if anything, is that I see and wearing clothing differently than you. We're posting in a thread in which everyone is wearing custom clothing, which they picked out themselves or assisted in picking out. Everyone here "tries" to a certain extent. As a matter of fact each morning I wake up and have one less step to get ready than yourself, so wouldn't that mean you try harder than me?

I think its funny that everyone gets riled up that I don't wear socks, yet no one gives DerekS crap for wearing tacky lapel pins representing companies he doesn't work for. Should he not just keep the label on his sleeve? I knew I was going to be criticized for no socks but thought everyone would have been used to it by now. frown.gif

Just my .02 cents foo.gif

I don't wear socks with loafers and chinos. Or rather, I wear the invisible socks. But, that's a casual setting.

 

Those shoes and the lack of socks, with that, is kind of an abomination. Which is a shame since the rest of the fit is so good. But you might as well wear an orange polka dot tie and call it, "your thing" as well. It makes just as much sense, man. 

 

Derek may wear lapel pins (I haven't seen any) but his fits are true to the theme from what I can tell. Not this, evening party/slumber party thing I see. 

 

In all fairness, if the pants were cut lower on the first fit - I would like it with no socks just fine.

Y'all need to leave SS alone. Whatever you think about his hem length and hosiery, the point has been made ad nauseum, and he shows no signs of changing his mind.

I'll say this about SS, though: He has style, and he's demonstrated that he doesn't take himself or his clothes too seriously. I'd have a drink with him.

But that was a cheap shot at DerekS, SS. Besides, Canta gave him the business about the Isaia pin yesterday, so it's not like it went unnoticed.

i get shit for nearly everything. Cargos, big peaks, plaid suits, lapel pins, loud pocket squares. But you know, when youre as goddamn handsome as me, you can do what the fuck you want. Keep trying though buddy.

and nobody is riled up about your socks...theyre just telling you that you look stupid in a nice way.
