Did you get on seam pockets or slant?

Did you order plain front or pleated? He may have had a reason to suggest one pocket over the other. One may work better for you than the other.

This is very true of most places in the world. you go in a (small) shop with the intent to buy.

Some shops though are destinations, and they expect browsers.

For some reason, they have a very strong preference for on-the-seam pockets. I like slant better, but Mariano was so strongly opposed, I decided I didn't care that much.

A very smart choice. I have the very last one in the works.

I ordered flat front and his reasoning was that slant tends to puff out and open when you move. I find the on seam does exactly that and it's awkward to get my hands into them. I think they are also a bit tight not at the waist but about midway between the waist and the crotch, so maybe a small adjustment will alleviate this. I'll find out next month in Naples.
