Sam, I'm totally torn on this. I really like the way the few unstructured pieces look on me, but that's obviously against conventional wisdomwith regards to a wider waist and dropped shoulder. Guess I'll keep experimenting, but thanks a ton for the input.
And to the rest of you re: the trousers! Thanks!! I think the reason these work so well is because they're cotton so the drape isreally good as compared to say, a lighter wool in the same cut. That said, I've never tried a lighter wool jn this cut, so I might just have to give it a swing.
Conventional wisdom loses to experience every time. I have a dropped shoulder and like either a really strong shoulder or a really soft one, and most of what lies in between doesn't work well for me.
Hard to judge if that cut of trouser is perfect for you, but the length seems to be.
