I'm not sure, but I've found that my pockets lay a lot flatter when wearing pleated trousers. For some reason, I think they bulge with just about all of my flat front trousers no matter how well the trouser fit. Interesting note. I don't have any non-flat front pants. I'm not too sure that I want to try pleats though. I'm young and tall and skinny... to me they seem boring. This is a good thread though. I hope some people chime in with pictures of their trousers that are perfectly fitted from various angles. I remember one picture in particular of a guy from back in the day (black and white) with a top hat, and pants that just looked amazing. I'm not sure this is enough for someone to find it, but I know it's been posted on here before.
