Or you can do what me and The Duke of Windsor* do and fold 2 x pair of trousers over each hanger - each pair cuff opening different side.

Good one : personally I think white can be too stark as an option, and that day to day, a pale blue shirt is as good, as a safe, starting point. I now only wear white for black tie and for interviews. I certainly don't wear white in shirt sleeve order or without a jacket these days.

@akclothpooper
I think this sort of cut can look very good. A lot of French suits used to tend toward this high fitted waist and wider cuff opening. Probably not technically flared but look like it. If you have a knee @ 10" and a leg opening/bottom at 10" it will look flared even though it is actually straight.
This picture unfortunately does not show the trousers hitting the shoes.

And summer fabric solid suits (linen/cotton /unstructured) also look better with light solid coloured shirts(possibly pale blue)
So where do the stripes fit in ? If one is wearing stripes should the tie/ps be solid (to avoid) the chest area looking too busy ?

 

 

I'm a fan of thin, subtle stripes on shirts to wear to work. 

 

I'd keep the rest of the outfit very quiet, and monochromatic.

 

Interestingly, today:

Anybody know of a good Italian deli in Surry Hills?

 

There used to be a great continental deli near the Capitol Theatre but it closed recently. They must have seen me coming.

 

 

I've been beaten to recommending Ocello on Bourke Street, in Surry Hills

Since the thread is turning towards food, what are good places for lunch around Ultimo/Fishburners? My default is Mecca.

I find the prices obscene after Singapore's food courts, if I'm going to get ripped off it might as well be for something exotic - Italian, French, hipster cafe...

Plenty of places you can get a good sit down lunch for less than $10. Often less than $8... or about 20 minutes busking in the Central pedestrian tunnel.

Put that $400 Stoffa beaver fur hat to good use.

That's exactly the type of trouser I was after @fxh, thought of the suits Yves Saint Laurent wore--just with less cropped trousers (hint of flare even if it's not really there).

I think that pic is from the book Sharp Suits. There might be more. I'll have a look
