    Do You Use a Trouser Press?

    Thread title explains purpose. Do you find them easy to use? Do they decrease the lifespan of a trouser? If you're pressing the trousers of a suit all the time but not the jacket, are you going to get a lot of differentiation between the two fabrics?

    Moose brown chinos and light brown shoes.

    Hi guys, I'm new on the forum, and have been looking around for a bit. I have a question. Will the pant/shoes combination on the picture work? Are these shoes too dressy to go with chinos ? I've had these pair of shoes sitting in a closet for a while, and wondered if I could make them fit with...

    Matching Pants with AE Stands

    So I recently picked up pair of AE strands from Nordstrom. I love the shoe, but I am having a hard time pairing it with slacks. I have worn them with Navy and Khahki and have gotten plenty of compliments. I own a pair of the following pants and I was wondering if they would work with them...

    How much should I taper my pants?

    I have a few pants that need to be tapered and I was wondering how many inches should I taper it to. I am going to taper my pants from the knee down because I have big thighs and above the knees is fine.I don't want the pants to be covering up my shoes as it is right now. Is there a way to...

    Suit Pants: can the waistband be stretched?

    I have a wool suit that fits in every area except the waist is maybe 1/2 an inch too tight, but there's no extra fabric to be let out. So is there any way a pair of wool slacks can be "stretched" without damaging them?

    Baggy Trousers

    So I'm thinking about experimenting with some trousers that would be a lot baggier than the SF-approved standard. As a bigger fellow, not only do I find them cooler (temperature not attitude) and more comfortable, but I think they work proportionately better as well. We're not talking oxford...

    Flannel Trousers...where to buy?

    Afternoon all. The one item for fall that i've decided I clearly need to add to my wardrobe is a pair of flannel trousers in a light grey. I like the brooks brothers milano option, but wondering if you had any other options to look at in the same price range say ($150 to $250). Looking for a...

    Pant waist alteration, normal or poor?

    I recently found a new tailor and has been asking him to take in on some of my older trousers. The finished job I noticed is different than my previous tailor in that the waistband always seems to have a slight "V" shape and the belt loops not straight on the waistband. I didn't ask him about...

    Please help me find higher raise pants

    The only existing thread with the same problem produces unsatisfactory results. Basically, I am about to transition from frustration to full on rage :fu: - the current trend of low raise pants makes no sense from any angle: it looks bad/sloppy/childish, its uncomfortable, and the shirts get...

    Tough/ most durable dress pants for business casual wear - brand or cloth

    The dress code in my office department is dress trouser and shirt, and if needed, we 'go up' to a sport coat. In all the years I have never needed to wear a suit. I am looking to purchase (or have made) a few pairs of dress trousers with the stipulation that the material both qualifies for...

    Is reweaving worth it? - Pictures

    I've never had anything reweaved before, so I don't have a good feel for how high the cost can get depending on the extent of damage. I would probably send to withoutatrace unless someone has a better recommendation. The first is a Luciano Barbera Collezioni Sartoriale blazer. The...

    Bespoke Trousers: Current Trend

    Seeing an uptick of requests from clients demanding old-school, retro-looking side-adjusters (a.k.a. buckles) with their bespoke trousers. With no loops on the waistband, belts are rendered useless. Brighter colors and "busier" patterns are certainly on the rise. Pants have a certain minimalist...

    What the hell is wrong with spanish tailors? (rant thread)

    I got a RTW suit a couple weeks ago. The trousers are a slim cut and came with unfinished hems, so I took them to a tailor to get them finished, with 1.5" cuffs. I asked for no break, as in this picture: He said that would be too short, and that the "correct length" would be trousers...

    Working buttonholes in trousers cuffs

    Hi I am working on the details of my first bespoke suit. The trousers will be cuffed (2” likely) and I thought it would be nice having working buttonholes instead of having the cuffs stitched to the pants. What do you guys think? Also, I friend had tiny weights inside the cuffs to hold...
