Single pleats

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm 35 pounds thinner and going through all the suits I haven't worn since letting myself go. Most calls are obvious but one particular suit vexes me. It's an Adriano and Sons, solid charcoal, pretty sure it was made by Caruso circa 2008. So a decent suit, all in. The jacket fits.

The pants, though, have two problems. First, they're a little baggy in the thigh and calf. I figure a tailor can recut and I won't be left with "good as new" but for the money maybe not too bad. The second problem is a single pleat.

Can I possibly wear a single-pleated pant in good conscience to a finance job in NY in 2017?

Pleats are on the rebound.

 

My only concern with those pants is how the recut would come out

+1 to both points.  That said, if your NYC, there isn't exactly a shortage a good tailors.

I think no pleats would definitely look better on you. Much more stylish. But if it's just the office I don't think it should be a huge deal unless you really have to look sharp

Legs can be slimmed easily. If you wear the jacket the single pleat won't be noticed.
