I hate how cords and other cotton trousers don't hold a crease, so I tried sewing a permanent one. Left leg has the crease, right leg not yet, for comparison. Thought you guys might like to see it. I might just do this for all of my cotton and linen trousers.

You cray.

 

Also you need socks.

 

Also also I love those loafers (JF, right?)

I'm not actually wearing shoes at the moment. Just put them on quickly for the pic, and I knew someone was going to comment on it. Yep, they're JF.

Is anyone here a 36R or 37R? I found an amazing lot of 4 vintage NWT suits on fleabay that I'd like a noodler to pick up. (Rather than posting it forum-wide)

PM me for details. You're gonna want to see this one

Didn't @NickPollica do something similar with pintucked moleskins?

post #15442 of 37672
@Monkeyface, that's a nice jacket, but it is effectively as easy to match as any navy or blue jacket.

@heldentenor has a similar blue gunclub jacket

Maybe I'll make a special section for navy patterned jackets...

Yeah, I saw that when I was googling for some info. Couldn't find anything that was helpful though, so I just winged it. Finished the grey cords, now doing my cream cords. I think I'm going to ask Luxire to do this on all my future trousers, perhaps even on wool ones. Sitting behind my desk all day always causes the crease on the knees to disappear.

Correct. We actually sell a model called the pintuck that we did in moleskin this season. Its my favorite pant at the moment. Edward Sexton does this on a lot if his tailoring as well.

Those moleskin pants look awesome. Is this the way to do it, or is the stitching done differently?

MF, though I admire your creativity, skills and effort, I'm not sure I like the result. Looks a bit contrived and too OCD to me. Why not accept the inherent qualities of the fabrics? Part of why cords and moleskin work in looking less formal is precisely because they don't look so crisp as wool. Just my 2 rupiah...

Because I like the texture of the farbic, but not how it drapes. This is how they look after just 10 minutes of wearing them:

But those pants can have a single pleat or have this, I don't see the harm IMHO. If it makes him happy to do this to his pants instead of having to press and have it fall out then sure. It's certainly nothing new!


MF, I wonder what it'll do after a wash, no?

Yeah, I've seen plenty of single/double pleated cords, some creased and some uncreased. The heavier ones seem to keep their crease relatively well. Mine, unfortunately, do not. I've seen plenty of people on here complain about linen or linen blend fabrics not holding a crease, so this would be the perfect solution for that. You don't really notice it has been stiched, unless I'm standing perfectly still and you're only a feet or two away.

 

Washing won't be a problem, as I don't wash my trousers. I usually have them dry cleaned once a year. I wear each pair less than once a week, so they're not used too frequently.

I saw Sexton stitched the crease on a donegal suit, and it looked good there. I think it's best on a variegated fabric so that the stitching blends in a bit.
