    Hmm, I don't know. They look good in the pic because they drape nicely, but from the side they look quite full, and when walking they tend to flap around a lot and get stuck in the shoe, which looks terrible. I was wondering if tapering to 7.5" or 8" from the knee down (these are 9" right now) would mitigate those problems while still draping nicely. Might try to taper myself a pair of cheap polyester pants with the same leg opening and see how it looks, before risking it on a more expensive pair...

    I "foofed" myself, and think it looks a bit better with legs tapered (and shoulders that fit, lol) :

    No smaller than 8" IMO, 7.5" is quite tapered.

    I'm just a little above 5'7" - 7.5" is relatively normal for me. But yep, maybe 8" would be better [​IMG]

    It all depends, my pants usually have a thigh measurement of 12" and tapered to about 7.5" - 8", which I find sufficent. I reccomended 8" since you earlier said you didn't like the look of pants that are too tapered.

    Yea, I was thinking about 20.5 cm - that's 8 inches. I wasn't converting units right [​IMG]

    I think the time to actually shave your neck would not take longer than using photoshop to black it out :satisfied:

    nope, you are finding it appropriately funny.


    hahahahaha. it may be close, but i find sitting on my butt at work, editing a pic on PB, to be easier than trimming and then cleaning the sink.

    These shoes are fantastic Malford! How would one go about achieving that color/patina effect? I have a pair of A. Testonis that are a similar style shoe that would look so much better with that coloration. Does anyone know how to do this or can someone point me to a thread on this?
