It does appear, however, that if that jacket's a regular, that you should try on a long.

Quick question: How much of my socks should appear when I sit? I feel like the break is too big but the socks appear a lot when sitting. Funny, right? :/

The only measurement that matters is how much of your socks is visible when standing.

So long as it's just sock showing - and not bare leg - there's unlikely to be any great problem.

I see. But I get many too many breaks when I'm standing. At least three. And one exactly under my knee, which spoils the line of my ironed pants. I hesitate to shorten it, because the shocks are very visible when I sit.

I'm not sure I see the issue. Your sock is going to show when you are sitting. It looks like I have 4.5" of distance between the top of shoe and the hem of my pant.

This is an old pic, but unless there is something wrong with your socks I don't see an issue with them showing.

Shorten what I strongly suspect are your overly long pants.

Then never sit. Only stand. Like about 99% of the pictures one sees of models wearing pants.

Slightly more seriously, I strongly suspect that your pants are overly long. Shorten them. Although posting a couple of pictures of you standing in the pants, and sitting in the pants, wouldn't be inappropriate, I suppose. And then, stop worrying about a few inches of sock showing when you're seated. This is how it's supposed to be. To worry about it is simply to create some weird new sort of OCD.

I can see it now - the next edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders will include an entry on Hosiery Visibility Insecurity Disorder (HVID). More commonly known to the layman as Konstantinos343's Syndrome. smile.gif

lol

 

I don't have a problem with my socks appearing when I sit. My problem is that if I shorten my pants, it will be too much of my socks showing.

 

I will post some pictures.

Any recommendations of where to buy odd trousers from online UK retailers in the UK? I'm not the tallest of chaps and would prefer something in quite a slender fit. All I can seem to find is overly casual chinos in 'extreme skinny' fits. I'm looking for something to pair with an odd navy blazer.

 

Thank you.

Konstantinos, your pants are too long. No more than one break while standing. Your socks are supposed to show when you sit.

Any reason you want to buy strictly from UK online retailers? There's so many in Europe selling online and at many different prices, so what is your budget exactly?

Have you tried CT shirts and TM Lewyn?
Anderson and Sheppard carries some nice styles too and from Rota as well.

Thanks for your reply, actually, European stores would also be fine, I looked at Cahrles Tyrwhitt, they do have some in extra slim fit, but not a great range of colours and materials.

 

Budget of around 100 gbp per pair, a little less would be nice. I checked suitsupply too, but feel like the fit will be a little on the large size.

 

I will check out Anderson and Sheppard an Rota, thanks for that, any more recommendation appreciated.

 

EDIT: Seems like those brands might be a bit out of my price range, Anderson and Sheppard style looks nice but at 350 gbp a pair, a bit pricey for me.
