Guys with fuller legs should never wear slim fitting pants, regardless of whatever anybody else says.

+1. Anyone that's not stick skinny should not wear slim fit flood pants.

p.s., DonC I think you really need to go for unstructured jackets to soften your upper frame. And sweater under jacket looks really bad on you, accentuating your girth. Maybe a solid and inconspicuous one will serve you better.

This jacket has always been a bit tight, it's one of the remnants of my old RTW stuff... a weekend of too much drinking also contributes.

And to prove that I can function without French cuff shirts, a picture from my recent visit to Vancouver - more specifically, from the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park.

As I was the one who first commented on Don's trouser width, may I just point out that all I said was that I couldn't help but feel that sometimes they were cut too wide.

 

A couple of weeks back, Don posted one particular fit where the trousers were cut just a little slimmer, and to me this improved his silhouette.

 

It was just a gut feeling I had. I'm no expert on menswear, but I have to judge and advise on human proportions on a daily basis in my job, and I have a certain level of confidence in my gut feeling. I have no idea whether my observation contradicted any particular rule.

 

Don responded quickly, stating that he has a couple of pairs of trousers at the tailor now. It will be really interesting to see the results. I might be proven completely wrong, but either way, I really respect the effort Don puts into his dressing and I hope one day to be able to get to a similar level. Keep up the good work, buddy.

But thanks for the inputs!

 



I was the same way at first then I came to the conclusion that a half break with 8.5" taper works best for me. I used to do an 8" taper but was too narrow and my pants wouldn't even fully go over my shoe

The week starts with my favorit suit from Oxxford clothes. I am very satisfied with the fit of the trousers.

Very nice suit and over all it, and the trousers fit you in a superb way.

I'm not so sure about the shoes with this suit. To me they are too causual.

The suit, tie and PS-combo is a nice colourmatch.

Jacket, pants, and shoes work. That shirt is not meant for a tie (the width of the stripes being too close to the width of a tie). Pocket clashes with the jacket (smooth to its rough, cool to its warm). Jacket sleeve is too long.
