Hmm...  I'll think about it then.  Yeah, it was double-pleated, but it's half-off day today.  I left it, as there's a typically better store (also half off), that I may want to check.  Decisions...

 

(edit:  it was single-vent as well)

You need to spend more time on the 'style' part of this forum. Pleats are fine, especially if they fit you. Most of the time, the jacket will cover up the pleats when you're wearing it anyway. 

I wouldn't wear like...pleated khakis, but for trousers that are part of a suit or will be worn with an odd jacket only they're fine. Seriously, go look at the WAYWRN thread.

The gorge is a little low but I would pick them up for personal use if cheap and your size. I'm not against pleats. I purchased a NWT BBGF suit from a few seasons ago from another member that has pleats. They aren't deep or egregious and the suit looks rather good on me. I would, however, be mindful of the pants of this suit in terms of their width around the legs.

+1 on pleats. All my trousers are pleated. Just ordered a fourth pair of Epaulet's high rise pants and they're amazing.

Yup, all my luxaire trousers have pleats. Just picked up a pair of triple pleated Dries pants off grilled...we'll see how that goes. 😊 The problem with pleats is that people remember them on ill fitting, billowy leg chinos worn by 90's casual Friday cubicle drones. If you have a pair that fit well and sit on your natural waist as opposed to under your belly, they are actually more flattering than flat fronts.
