damn, alright

post #14882 of 16337
It's to be snowy here in NYC today, so I'm recycling my attire from yesterday's brunch for today, eschewing a tie, and adding rubber overshoes before leaving the house.

Sports jacket, trousers, shirt, and overcoat - BB
PS - Alain Figaret
Shoes - Alden
Scarf - Aquascutum
Cap - James Dermot, London, via House of Cashmere, Burlington Arcade

I tend to disagree.

I think just about everyone looks better in tapered trousers. You're right that it accentuates longer feet, especially in a longer last but I think the positive outweight the negative - i.e. it's more good to look thinner than it is bad to look like you have big feet.

Tapered, sure, but there are degrees of taper, no?  I know I need at least a 9" leg opening or things look funny. It's a delicate balance.

Sure but we're talking about a specific example here.

Snitches trousers look good enough there that I probbaly wouldn't bother changing the degree of taper based upon shoe size / choice.

I don't know if it's possible to make the opening wider, or that he have them tailored if it were,  I only meant that on future purchases he might take the leg opening into consideration.  He looks great of course, it's just something I notice more because it's a personal peeve of mine on my own trousers.

thanks, big C.

also, big C, these "stitches" nicknames always make me smile. blush.gif

lastly, i think that sometimes the taper of my pants is not ideal with my shoe/foot situation, but i agree that that is better than pants that accentuate my fatness.

Thanks, Stitchy. With the temperatures where they are, "cozy" is important - the reason for the second scarf to force my jacket collar to act as earmuffs.

Today's sweater was a recent purchase - saxony wool, and very warm and soft.

^^^ I almost bought that sweater, but I have a number of pull-over sweaters and am saving my pennys for this:

Either in wine or petrol.

I was seduced by the 50% off price, with an additional $40 off coupon for a purchase over $175 using BB's own charge card. $685 for a sweater is a shade rich for my blood, though I am sure that Ben Silver's would be worth it.
