That's where pants should sit when worn with braces. I'm wearing mine at about the same height today. I'm 30, so I pass Clapeyron's old man filter too icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Every piece of clothing looks best on physically fit people but that's no secret.

 

I think someone who wants to successfully wear a 3pc should not have a puny physical appearance (especially pencilneck and narrow shoulders). If avoided, it doesn't matter how young someone looks otherwise. It has to do with the commanding presence of a 3pc that a young/"weak" body couldn't compliment, imo.

Crocs are also well within the mainstream (no offense).

My objection was to your assumption of the motivation for cuffing the jeans. I leave it to you and everyone else to decide for himself whether he likes cuffed jeans.

No.

A big belly is a big belly. Before spending 5 racks a pop on bespoke, hire a trainer and get your eating under control.

Desu is the maximum level of "bigness" you can be without looking like a big cartoon in pinstripes.

And he has that sort of 'brick shithouse' build where he's not even fat so much as thickly built.

But the bottom line is that looking good is hard and a big belly makes it essentially impossible.

facepalm.gif This is so full of bullshit assumptions and petty judgment that I am surprised the server didn't buckle under the weight of it. Fat people can be healthy, strong, and appealing to others. Skinny people can we sickly, weak, and unattractive. Deal with it.

Why? Have you tried it? This is by far the most comfortable trouser cut IMHO.

My man, if they are painfully uncomfortable, then they aren't fitted properly. The ease of suspended trousers is fantastic.

Just so everybody is clear - you don't achieve the high-waisted trouser look by taking your trousers and yanking them up to your belly button, bisecting your nutsack in the process. You need trousers with a high rise, that are made to be worn higher. If you're affecting your reproductive health, you're doing it wrong. In fact, if they're cut for braces, they'll be a little bit looser (since the braces are keeping them up), so everything should be a little more comfortable.

I think that is almost all in good taste but it would benefit from shoes other than black.
