Forgot to add - with that sort of trouser you really need a bit of heel on your shoes to work best. SVB would look better with a higher heel.

Can anyone advise:

I got a pair of pants from Luxire recently. They look good and fit well when I'm standing, but they pull in the front crotch when I walk or sit.

Any tips on which measurement to adjust? Thigh? Half-hip? Rise?

Cheers,
Eightace

Arrived at my new place - service apartment typey setup - in HK tonight. Sort of in a hilly culvert between Mei foo and Lai chi kok. The closest MTR station is 10 minutes away on foot but there's plenty of food and dry cleaning on the way. It's staggering how expensive the cost of living is here compared to Aus. The fact that it's not even the most expensive city to live in within Asia is terrifying. Guess the morning coffee is going to have to come out of my Aeropress now. 

 

Have yet to successfully Google search a wine bar/bistro that serves decent Australian drops (e.g. Eden Road, Clonakilla, Unico Zelo et al) but hope springs eternal. Thanks to the smarts of the gentlemen on this forum I've also booked an appointment with Classic Watch Repair in Kowloon. 

 

Will report back on #menswear ramblings after I'm better settled in. 

 

Unrelatedly, does anyone have much experience with swatches from the Minnis Fresco "Fresco II" book. If anyone has any thoughts on swatch 0546, I'd love to hear em. Chasing the vibe of Andreas Weineas's summer suit from the Permanent Style blog:

Wine in those days was actually pretty average - or so fxh tells me.

Wow olive, isn't that a bit ostentatious?

I know that I really shouldn't read these Fairfax Executive Style articles, as they're bad for my blood pressure:

 

http://www.executivestyle.com.au/overseas-style-influencers-find-success-in-australia-gqwqnq

 

All I can really say is that, if these are some examples of successful "style influencers", then a) we're in deep sh!t, stylistically speaking; and b) clearly there's an opportunity for someone who is knowledgeable, well-dressed and not a complete prat to make an absolute killing in the style influencer business, given that the competition appears to be absolute rubbish.

You and PoP can take over the market.

Looking on the bright side, GF, at least you already had the wine open so as to make it easier to drown your sorrows!
