    hello together,
    I am collecting photos of wider cut trousers with pleats to show them to my tailor for reference. I aim for a couple of pants with a patterned cloth and the elegant fuller cut of older times. I found a couple of sketches from the 30s here but the trousers looked like being pulled up almost to cover the chest.
    Once there was a Thread to this topic and how this look could be translated into modern times and what's needed to make it work.
    I could not find it though. Any help/photos/links from you?

    Best
    C

    This might just be your view of what a normal rise is.

    One problem you're going to have is most men would have been wearing a jacket. So if you're looking for photos showing the upper part of the pants you're going to have that issue to deal with.

    Thanks for your reply. Since I work in the tropics, I don't wear a jacket in everyday life. Therefore the trousers must work without. That's why I'm so skeptical about the very high rise cuts.

    The problem with a full cut drape trouser is that if you don't wear it with a higher rise they tend to look a little sloppy/baggy, the extra length from the long rise balances them out. And at the time when that cut was popular men wore a jacket all the time, I have a lot of pics of jacketed drape suits ill put them up hope you see one you like![​IMG][​IMG]

    This is what I'm looking for. If you have a few more of these, I'd love to browse through. Maybe I can use some just as a starting point and discuss how to adapt it with my tailor. (going to be iris in Singapore) does anyone remember a thread to this topic? I'm sure there was one a few months ago
