Looks like the sleeves could be let out a touch, P.

Good to see some pleats though. Are they "SF approved" ;)

Yes, you are correct the sleeves are a tad bit short. It bugs me every time I wear the suit, but I haven't gotten around to having them altered yet. In fact the entire jacket is a little short, which is kind of ironic since it is MTM. Just goes to show that sometimes even having things made especially for you can turn out less than perfect....

I get pleats on all my trousers if I have the option (preferably one forward pleat) - I feel that the line of the trousers just look so much better with pleats. As for whether they are SF approved or not, I couldn't care less....

@Claghorn, great fit but I would like your pants to be like 0.5 inches tapered. Just a personal preference and nothing against the look.

I am a fan of pleats too, I was just joshing with you, particularly in light of the recent discussions.

I'd say most people use SF approved in a tongue in cheek way, that's at least the way I use it.

I figured that was what you were getting at. Pleats is one if those things where I pretty early on found myself disagreeing with the prevailing SF view. However, the "flat front" crowd isn't nearly as vocal as they were, say two years ago.

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" :slayer:

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.

 

Cheers,

Nah, I don't believe that.... wink.gif

It's kind of funny that pleats are sometimes frowned upon as they used to go hand in hand with another SF love - cuffs. I for one never wore cuffed pants before joining SF. AFAIK is used to be pleats and cuffs or flat front and no cuffs but somehow cuffs became SF approved whereas pleats suffered a more ominous fate.....

I think is also has to do with the fact that you pretty much need to wear the trousers at your natural waist for pleats to work. Lower rise trousers with pleats is a recipe for disaster....
