Details: Dugdale flannel, double pleated, sewn in crease (military crease), coin pocket, side adjusters, slanted 2" cuffs, and 9" leg openings. Good luck finding that RTW for $99.

Now obviously they need a pressing to smooth out all of the folds and wrinkles from shipping, but I thought I'd post some quick fit pics:

Very very nice - those trousers certainly give me the confidence to go ahead! How long did they take?

Cheers! I get they're not everyone's cup of tea. Getting wider trousers has been the biggest revelation for me in 2014. They look better on me and they're so much more comfy than RTW, which was always a bit too tight in the quads, even with alterations. The pleats are mainly for extra comfort when sitting down, as I (unfortunately) spend about 12 hours in a row sitting in front of my screens every day. When you wear a jacket they're hidden from sight, not that I think they're that unsightly.

About 4 weeks from me sending them in.

Damn, Luxire nailed the fit on those pants, MF. Rock on with your bad self.

Great trousers, @Monkeyface. I am not sure pleats will ever win me over, but you wear them well. Thanks for taking the time to post a photo.

As promised, the full length shot. It's overcast today but you get the idea.

Looks a tad long, but that might just be the angle. Still, looks good at the chest, which, as you've sad, is the problem area. So that's good.

I think it's the camera angle - it is a very comfortable length on. Incidentally - a bunch of ties arrived today - I'll photograph them later to get your opinion smile.gif I also got the Sam Hober you recommended - it's beautiful!

I've mentioned this before, but this happens to me when I forget to take Lexapro for a few days. It's actually sometimes how I realize I've forgotten to take it.

Very well fitted suit

The recent remarks made regarding individual shirts suggests to me that a useful discussion might be had on the question of what role, if any, should be played by patterned dress shirts in a business wardrobe (whether they’re in the top ten or not isn’t my question).  The reason I think this is that there doesn’t seem to be a clear consensus, based on remarks people have made here and elsewhere, on patterns apart from simple stripes (which most people allow can work in a business context).

 

So what about checks?  Large?  Small?

 

Here’s what I wore today, for example.  Thoughts?

 

Cheers,

@jfrater, you might like to try using a longer focal length lens, also positioning the camera further away from you at mid-chest level. These suggestions will help to minimise the subtle fish-eye distortion we are seeing in your full-length fit shot, and allow better judgment of garment fit and proportions.

 

I generally use a 36mm lens on my Fuji XT-1. This will be equivalent to 50mm on a full-frame SLR, and is said give roughly the same perspective as the human eye. A still-longer focal length could also work, although then you start losing detail due to the "slowness" of the lens.

 

For examples, have a look at fit shots by Claghorn, EliodA and Anden. (Plenty of others too.) You seem very receptive to good-natured advice and the above will, I believe, help you to lift your game even further on this board.
