There seems to be a dislike of pleated trousers on style forum.
Is this because members can not find trousers that fit correctly?
Most RTW pleated trousers in the U S have reverse pleats. Personally I think
this model is horrible. Trousers look much better with 2 forward facing pleats.
The main pleat should be 11/2 inches deep. This allows the pleat not to open,
and the trouser will drape beautifully. Unfortunately Polo Purple Label, and Ben Silver
do not make a deep pleat any more.. There current models are shallow, and will
gape open. The only way I can get this type of trouser, is to have them made bespoke. I believe the cost well justifies the end result. Another plus is the ability to wear beautiful braces with them.
Who else think that a properly fitted pleated trouser is the dressiest ?
