the trick is to have a very flat stomach, e.g. wearing the same waist size in pants at 40 years of age that you did at 18. That's real 1%.

I know you're going for the ridiculous look here, but as someone that wears FU pants rather regularly, I think you're better served to match them with an otherwise somber look. Look to Ed for awesome examples of this and you'll see an otherwise well-tailored, conservative look gives the pants a lot more pop. Here you just look like an unorganized Easter egg. Again, I know this was half of what you're trying to accomplish with this fit. Also, was this taken at Carolina Cup?

EDIT: Put your collar down.

BTW, the last pic I posted was of another SFer, not me. My current waist size is about the same as my age.

As well she should. A couple more inches in the rise and you could dispense with wearing shirts. No more need for CVS cloth tape.

Which is.....

Edit: I vaguely remember Spoo talking about this once, aren't you pretty young?

Here's the pair I made last summer (F in pattern matching):
120
640

I like patterned pants fwiw. Does anyone have/wear pants with an embroidered motif (sailboats, dogs, etc.) a la BB?

@rs232 - did you make the ones in your pic?

I'd consider it an organized easter egg but yes, Carolina Cup.

Lord have mercy! And that's coming from someone who understands the South and thinks nothing of pushing the limits.

Can anyone with a substantial collection of awesome plaid/textured/glencheck pants tell me some of the brands please? I've been looking for some pants like these for ages but to no avail!
