Why do you get full break pants, noodles?
Yes. I regret that. I don't think you read before asking questions. I asked for a slight break and I got a full break. Terrible.
I measure myself and drop them off. As long as they cuff at the measurement I requested, I know I will like the results.
I have the opposite issue.
thats what she said
Correct. Maybe braces will work but I have no clue since I haven't worn one before.
Noodles has those 70's pants!
Is the opposite of having nothing in the back having something in the back or nothing in the front?
In my case, the former. For jrd apparently, he suffers from the latter.
Yes, I have access to those, will give them a shot and take some pictures. @kulata , I'm assuming eidos in the soft shouldered category? Bummer, I really like their fabrics.
Yes, will do. Today was more casual.
@jimb my advice was based solely on that single picture which shouldn't carry too much weight since picture angles can be funny and you were wearing a really small jacket. Post more pictures of yourself in different jackets and maybe my recommendation can be disregarded.
Take a look at the Formosa Crew: Murl, Stitches and Noodles. Especially on top (e.g. Noodle's pic). Compare with your pics and look for salient differences (chest, shoulder, length). Look for clean lines, no distortions, smooth draping of the fabric. Look for where you want lines to be straight and where lines are curved in a way that seems right (cf. the Lorenzo fit in Eidos or any Liverano fit for some nice "curves").
Also, look at Noodle's pants which alas do not match the top in cleanness of fit. I suppose one thing that will help is having the cuff set higher so it falls with almost no break. Sorry Noodles; get that fixed.
