Are these pants too high?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

I don't want to look like I am heading to an 80s disco party. Can you tell me if these pants are too high?

Thanks.

It's hard to tell, but your pants look rather wide below the knees. I think a slightly slimmer pair of pants and a more a fitted shirt would improve the look greatly.

Maybe consider a more pale shirt and a sport coat?

Sorry for the poor picture quality.

 

They look a bit wide below the knees because directly next to my calves is a behemoth book with a black binding.smile.gif

 

Thanks for the advice though.

Well either way, I rather like pants with a higher rise. I think especially when everything else fits well pants look better closer to one's natural waist.

A picture that goes at least up to your neck would be much better to tell from.

Thanks.

Disco was basically dead by the 80s.
I think you mean the 70s.

I don't think they are too high at all, but I prefer a higher rise myself.

Is it intentional, for the 80's theme, that the shirt looks like it's about 3 sizes too big?

Is that the best photograph you can manage to get when seeking help?

To offer help a full length view, not blurred or merging with the background is essentiaL

I need to see the overall photo. Your shirt is too big which makes it look even worse.

Like this, do it. Lots and lots of pastels.

Those look like the Z. Cavaricci pants of my 1980's youth.

Once again, sorry for the picture quality. I am a programmer not a photographer.

And I do know that the shirt is a bit too big. But, it is to be worn under a wool pullover so the only thing that matters is the collar and cuffs.

 

Also, here is a picture of the fabric, if you are interested.

It is not really pink as seen in the picture, that is caused by the crappy camera.

 

Thank you,

 

Richard

Sorry, but the shirt is waaaay too big. It really doesn't matter if you are wearing a sweater over it. "This shirt is fine because I only wear it with a sweater?" How big is the sweater?

Since it is brand new, do you expect it to shrink sufficiently if I wash it in hot water then throw it in the dryer? It is a 65/35 blend.
