    Hi folks, speaking from Portugal, here.
    Well, about the pleats, i must admit that some fisiques may not be favoured by pleated trousers, which i personally prefer over non-pleated ones.
    But on the matter of trousers width "down under", it seems modern stylists are trying to transform modern (i.e. younger) men into giant grasshoppers, with those narrow and, in some cases, realy skinny suit trousers they design nowadays.
    Grotesque!...
    What do you say?

    As long as it is not skin tight, narrower trousers are a good thing. I only have one pair of trousers with pleats and its for a tuxedo. Personally, I like them. If I was to get something custom, I would get a single reverse pleat. I like the idea because it's functional, simple, and would line up with the trouser crease.
