Looks like the sleeves could be let out a touch, P.
Good to see some pleats though. Are they "SF approved"

I am a fan of pleats too, I was just joshing with you, particularly in light of the recent discussions.
Caught up on a lot of the "SF Approved" Debate and being of the younger generation, this forum seems a lot like a fraternity. You pledge to get in (i.e. posting your first fit pics and hoping the "brothers" like it) and if they do you're in. Even if they don't and some people show you some support your still in but have to be prepared to fight your way to the top.
I see a lot of the "seniors" and "super-seniors" get a lot of love no matter what the fit and I guess they have earned that right but I agree with everyone who preaches for individual style.
Essentially, I think as a fairly newcomer who lurks a lot, it's nice to post some fits just to make sure you're getting the basics right and once you have that down, you should be free to add some "life" to your fits which is why I greatly appreciate the fits of AAS, Trai and others because honestly, greys, lighter greys, more greys get a little monotonous at times and honestly at 25, I'm trying to tie in both sides of the coin, conservative but edgy.
Here's to being a freshman of Sigma "Fi"
I think a lot has to do with the body of the wearer, don’t you? I’ve always thought they look odd on me, but that’s probably because I’m skinny. But there are plenty of times when I think they look just fine on other people.
Agree with pingson here. I have seen pleats work on many body types imo, thin and not so thin. I am convinced that if I went bespoke that the tailor would suggest pleats for my thin waisted big hip/butt body type. From what I've read around SF, I am certainly not the only one with such a body type and it surprises me that pleats aren't more popular.
Anyone whose waist is smaller than their hips AND they prefer to wear a higher rise, I think well done pleats will always produce a positive effect.
Unfortunately it seems like in RTW, already baggy pants have pleats simply accentuating the problem, whereas slim pants are flat front. I think slim pants are some of the ones that could benefit most from pleats.
