Re rise on pants, it's a known fact that it gets higher as you advance in years. When your a young turk getting five fingered discounts at Kmart your pants are actually more or less around your ankles (this can make it hard to evade security). When you get to your late 20s/early 30s you have normal rise pants. Eventually, if you advance enough in years, the belt of your trousers will sit snugly on your head like a halo.

I'm pretty confident that high rise is going to roar back into fashion in the next 2-3 years.

I have also gone for single reverse pleats on my high rise pants, I think it helps the look immensely.

I went without pleats for the linen trousers: regretting it.

 

Note on reverse pleats: works better if you have a balanced seat-and-rise.

 

If you have a wide rise, the reverse pleats tend to bunch up and you lose the clean lines. I stick to normal pleats.

Oh, dear. I hope that fxh's career - and life - don't come to such an inauspicious end as Faliero's!

Interesting. I prefer reverse pleats to forward pleats as I find that when I've had forward pleats on trousers they tend to sit a bit awkwardly and the pleats tend to open up, whereas I've not had that problem with reverse pleats - they always sit flat.

What do you mean by a "balanced seat and rise"?

To clarify to all, by reverse pleats we mean ones that open up towards the back....

My bad - when I say reverse pleats, I mean they face forward.

 

I've got them mixed up (backwards). What I mean is 'inverse' pleats, which face forward.

Yeah I thought so.

I think reverse look a bit more modern than forward.

I have a large posterior (seat), and a narrower rise (area between waist and crotch). It's another oddity of mine. The fabric on my trousers naturally tend to bunch near the front. The forward/inverse pleats accentuate this bunching.

 

Reverse pleats don't, as much.

 

To achieve a cleaner drape on the seat, I have the back of my trousers slightly higher too. The reverse pleats are better for me for this reason, too.

 

I can't go flat front because of the large thighs, and this imbalance.

They are, in fact, more modern. 

 

Inverse/forward pleats were just called 'pleats' in the 30's.

Phew I'm glad we cleared that up - com-pleat-ley.

Now let me get this straight - reverse pleats face forward - forward pleats face backwards, inverse pleats are converse and normal pleats are not normal??

So every time you say "reverse", you actually mean "inverse"??

I did, because I meant to say "inverse" pleats.
