Bonerific is a good way to describe how I feel when I look at this picture. Too much?
KGs got some of the best cuff pron on the intrenet. And this right after velo got his circumsicioned. That's cruel, mane.
Howlin' scarf, Brown Chromex belt.
Velo- here's the deal with your seamstress. She's not going to give you $200 for pants...I'd ask, but don't hold your breath. I would not pay her as she did not do what you asked, and let her know you won't ever use her again. Tell her she should have called you if she couldn't do what you asked. Don't get yourself too worked up though, and think of it like the Bronx Tale. Remember when C was chasing that guy for days for the $20 he was owed? Well, think of it like that, it just cost you $200 to get her out of your life. Now you know, go to the Italian guy. It sucks, but you still got a cool ass pair of pants and the knowledge of where to go next time. Its not worth aggravating yourself for someone who clearly doesn't give a shit. Just my two cents.
Thanks for kind words. My colleagues know me as a bit of a powder keg, but as soon as the explosion is done, I'm back to my old reasonable self. You're right, it's only a pair of pants-there are much more important things in life to worry about. I will pop in to the seamstress's shop to let know she let me down and that she won't be seeing me again.
On the plus side, the cocoa trousers and gunmetal chinos should be delivered today- that should put a smile on my face.
Have a great day everyone. Mike
Brilliant reference to A Bronx Tale. Most apropos.
Do the washed red trousers look like the pictures in real life? I want a pair of red vibrant pants and from the pictures, they seem to fit the bill.
Also, is there a big difference between the Tapered Rudy and Slim Walt? From looking at the specs, the differences seem very minor.
Can anyone help a brotha out?
My thought is that there's too much break, particularly when seen from the front. Spoils the line. Sounds like you might feel the same way. Maybe try rolling them up once to see if that gives you a feel for them with a shorter inseam before taking them back to the tailor.
I think they look fine. Remember these area more casual chino, not dressy trousers. You can get away with a little more break.
EDIT: It also depends on how tall he is. If he's very tall then having a little more break in pants helps create the illusion that's he's overly so. When someone is tall you run the risk of clothes looking too short on you because of it. It has to do with others visual perception of your proportions due to your height. If he is of a more normal build, then this is not an issue.
Thanks for the replies fellas. I guess I'm on the fence as to if I should have anything done. If it helps; I'm about 5'10'' and 130 lb. I'm pretty damn skinny, which is why the pants may look a little loose on me.
True. And the pants also look excellent without a cuff, even if you are not accustomed to wearing them that way.
The red trousers are excellent. The major difference between the Rudy and the Walt is that there is more room in the thigh and seat in the Rudy. For some people with bigger thighs, this is crucial. But if you can wear the Walt, as I do, I would recommend it. Mike always runs more Walt styles, and the look is sleek, but not skinny by any means.
(NYR, after all, would never be caught dead in a skinny fit pant.)
Try cuffing. They are too long, but you may like the way a cuff looks on those. When I am feeling especially I have been known to double cuff my chinos.
EDIT: Have you washed them? With a hang dry? They will lose a bit of length when you wash them -- maybe a quarter inch.
You may have divulged this information already, but what camera do you use to take these shots? They are really nicely done. Of course, perhaps it's not the camera, but the cameraman.
Depending on how slim (or fat) your legs and butt are, you can definitely tell the difference when you try on both pairs. The Rudy is perfect for me....slim but not too tight, but the Walt is skin-tight.
At 5' 10" I don't think you would need to take your height into consideration for pants length. Having said that, I still think those look fine on you since they are casual chinos.
