Looking for trousers of some sort rather than jeans probably some type of wool or blend of wool. What made me interested was an inspo Gerry posted ages ago with a guy in an A2, sweater and wide trousers,having trouble finding it though.

Growing up in Bangladesh during early 90s there was a massive trend on wide trousers. It was however limited to teenagers and gangsters (wannabe). I remember getting my school trousers tailored to a 24" leg opening (vs 20/22" waist) . Super high waisted, 2 forward pleats . I was advised by my buddies to have 4 pleats. But the tailor refused to do more than 2. I was probably only 11/12 yo . I had to go to the tailor with my mom; as my father didn't wanted to be involved in the nonsense. They look terrible on a windy day.

Flares are the epitome of all that was wrong with the early to mid 70's. I have noticed they have tried numerous times to mount a comeback but thankfully society has moved past such absurdities.

Thanks @Foxhound, I think they look pretty good when not too exaggerated and am still keen to try some. Probably going with no cuffs since the pic does the same.

New to the forum, just moved to Canberra and I travel throughout Australia regularly. Any good Facebook groups or similar for anouncements on menswear sales? If anyone has recommendations for higher end menswear shops, feel free to send them my way.

Where do you guys get your suit hangers from?

Recently I broke one of my MJ Bale ones.

Everything I've seen online is poorly designed - either no felt bar or the hanger is ridiculously skinny.

I bought a whole lot of wooden hangers from Mei +  Picchi about 10 years back and am still very happy with them:

I've also noticed that reputable alterations tailors will quite often have some of the wider, plastic hangers lying around so if you've got someone that you typically use for alterations, you could always ask them if they've got some spare hangers.

​Shop for Shops. They supply retailers stuff for their displays. They have excellent wide wooden hangers for suits and they go for less than $3 a pop.

My only criticism is that the rail for hanging pants doesn't have the best grip. If it really bothered me I would stick some felt on them.

SF moments like this always remind me of the Hammock District.

@Ernesto - you got the address of MaryAnne's Hammocks?
