    Hah compared to most of my other pants, definitely.
    I'll try and get a better pic of that outfit someday soon with derbies instead (and probably a turtleneck too)

    Maybe I'm off base here but I was watching this video today and thought of this thread.



    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]



    It's pretty standard rap style I suppose, I know there were some images of wu-tang posted last page, but Diplomats always represented a very specific time (early to mid 00's) and place (NYC, Harlem) for me, and I think they really owned the look in a much more significant and unified way. They pushed it to it's peak to the point that right after these guys fell from grace everyone in rap changed to much more "fashion-y" designers; as if they were saying, "OK, Dipset owned that look and we'll never be as on-point as them, so let's try something different from now on..."

    And to me, that's a very strong statement for their power in their aesthetic; a thing that many professional (even successful) designers struggle achieving in their careers, so credit must be given where credit is due.

    Again, maybe my head isn't on straight.

    PS Make sure you watch the vid to the end. It's a 2-in-1 and the second part features Cam wrapped in a pink bandana bomber that's just beautiful.

    Any examples of it done with lighter fabric? I'd like to imagine how it could work in warmer climates.

    I've always found that choice of fabric and fabric quality weight play a big part in making oversized clothing look awesome.

    My fledgling attempt at advancing.

    It's been pointed out to me, reasonably enough, that these trousers are khakis. And that may make them much less advanced than I was hoping. It's interesting to wear something so generously cut anyway. Funny looking through this thread though. I could clearly go even bigger/wider.

    Yeah bigger! Wider! Maybe something like this. E. Tautz does a good voluminous khaki.

    Here's one from Mister Mort's instagram, with vintage khakis. I think the crop works, plus this guy's general vibe is cool. I was thinking of picking up a pair of repro style khaki's from what price glory, maybe sizing up a bit too, to get this look.

    I think the crop does work well there. I like how the top half fits as well. They guy definitely has a vibe.

    The khakis in my photo above are from WPG (hi @thefoxtooth). I might try getting them hemmed a little on the short side like this. They are plenty high rise as well, which I like.

    The other thing is that cotton khaki's work better with warm weather looks, for the most part. I think could pair some full pleated flannels with that Moscow coat.

    Looking good @FrankCowperwood ! It's funny, I got very little love for the WPGs but now everyone seems to be talking about them all of a sudden. Maybe I just wasn't paying attention before.

    I like rolling mine up when I want a little floodwater vibe. I'm looking forward to wearing them with some dope-ass aloha shirts I got Boxing Day (tucked in of course to show off the rise).
