Those are Patrick R like choices.
I'm not your size. You're safe.
I like the length of the pants. If you had that much break on the back side it would be too long. If the back of the leg is clean, then this break looks good to me.
I'm 6'2" and go with 1.5".
- I'd like to share some of my own humble "wardrobe rebuild" from scratch efforts to date, following a period of sustained weight loss that resulted in me no longer being able to fit my entire wardrobe.
- Presently, my major top-block garments (i.e. SC/blazers and car coats) are pictured below. From left to right: SB-2B English cut SC/blazers in "solid" black, mid night blue and air force blue wool blends. And, SB-3B car coats in solid mid night blue and tan cashmere. Yep, boring old traditional English cut notched lapels one and all, compared to the stylish Formosa cuts on display here.
- In addition, I have two new SB-2B English cut suits (in solid mid and dark grey wool) with my HK tailor now being adjusted and two new SB-2B Neapolitan cut SC/blazers (in solid jet blue and navy blue wool) being made now. In the case of the Neapolitan cut SC/blazers, I may get matching trousers for them too (aka blazer/suits).
- Also, I'm planning another a couple of new SB-3R2 Neapolitan cut SC for summer down under, i.e. in solid Rivera blue and/or light or mid grey wool. Note to high contrast self: get a suntan first before wearing! Plus, new "patterned" SB PoW check suits in grey, navy blue and/or tan. Perhaps a patterned tweed SC or two for next winter.
- However, my next new suit commission will be for a SB English cut (1 or 2 buttons?) in "solid" mid night blue wool with peaked lapels to cap off my present solids collection.
- Despite over 25 years of history getting custom made clothes from HK, I'm still following the well beaten path and time honoured approach taken by well schooled sartorial newcomers, i.e. building a good foundation of "solids" first. In my case, more SC/blazers than suits--as I'm not a CBD professional like The Noodles.
- Naturally, comments from you/everyone else about my present modest wardrobe rebuild efforts and future intentions are most welcome. Thanks!
P.S. I'm just waiting on my new trousers (alas, got some fit issues at present) to be completed by my HK tailor, before I can start posting some fits here at long last.
@The Noodles not so, man. Bleaching your hair blonde would in fact have the opposite effect, i.e. taking you from high to a lower contrast visage. May I suggest that you read the second chapter (The Power of Color) of Alan Flusser's book Dressing The Man. As correct colour appreciation is very important to us all achieving flattering sartorial looks in an "optimal"way--with the least expenditure of time and expense. Otherwise, expensive lessons (unflattering looks and/or buyer's remorse) will have to learnt along the way.
