Australian Members - Part II - if you read the first post, you'll get what this is all about. - Page 172
edit: Like a lot of other terms today "straight leg" has been a bit bastardised - esp in jeans. I think what you are after might be best termed Parallel Legs

Also - if you are going for a wider "actual flare" as opposed to say a boot cut then you'll need military cuffs otherwise you'll be dragging in the dirt at the rear or swinging high water above you shoes - neither a good look with wide trousers. OTOH you could just try some boot cut jeans to get a feel for the whole thing. You should be able to get flares at some men's vintage shops
edit: depending what you are interested in - its worthwhile doing a search of images from labelking and barims from a while back on SF both of who (whom?) could pull off a 70s style well albeit in different ways.
SVB posted a pic of him in a beige style suit with wide trousers a week or so ago I thought worked without looking ironic or like he was going to a 70s party.

I've looked at Loro Piana clothing in Japan previously, but never really paid attention to their prices. I didn't realise that they were asking such stratospheric amounts.
Lol, indeed! Even the outlet prices in Paris made my eyes water. But hope springs eternal- the little birdie at the store tells me prices are better in Italian outlets.
And on that score, lets not get started with Brunello Cuccinelli's prices.....

Goes with the $50,000 1945 Mouton-Rothschild of which there are two bottles available next door.
They know their target demo...
