    It's a combination of length, button stance, and pant rise. Generally, you probably want to get the pants to hit close to the buttoning point so there's no space between. However, there's almost a foot of space here.

    I used to have my dress pants hemmed without cuffs, but once I tried it I can't look back, pleated or not. Specially grey flannels...

    I agree, pleats for big-timers, no pleat for small-timers. :slayer:

    I'm going to second this. This is the best "fitting" fit I've seen you do. great.

    A few days ago I posted a shot of this Attolini jacket with some gray flannel trousers that I said I thought was a fail because of the low contrast between jacket and trousers. I think this works better:

    Fit pic. Butler inspired me to break out my winter whites. They're definitely an off-white/cream color. The picture quality is awful, so not sure what is able to be seen. Any helpful critique (based on terrible pictures) always appreciated.

    I'm sure that more people - in general and on here - agree with you than agree with me on this but...

    I really hate don't like seeing fits that have some deliberatey quirky detail. It's strikes me as something between pretentios and silly and always looks like an after thought.

    Subtlety, in addition to being graceful in and of itself, is more admirable because it's a lot more rare. I don't know why that is. If you aim for foppish and miss, you wind up somewhere around ridiculous. On the other hand, if you're trying for a tasteful subtlty and don't quite reach the mark, you're no worse off than boring.

    Part of it is that you can walk out the door now and come back three hours later with a lime green tweed SC, a plaid tie and purple trousers. Whereas it takes lot of time and hassle to get a perfectly fitting navy suit in a shape and style that flatters your physique and makes sense in the context of your daily life.

    'But Agnelli wore his watch on the outside of his shirt cuff!!!' Yea but he was busy running a ffith of Italy's GDP and only wore blue and grey. He earned a few quirks.

    I like it lot better with the grey trousers. A bit more chic with just one half earthtone.

    I also like darker ties with tweeds fits. Or maybe it's that I just don't like yellow ties.



    Are the tan trousers covert twill? I got a pair made up in what I think is a similar fabric and love them. As hardwearing as jeans. Pefrect for the airport or something like that.

    I'm going to be the odd-one-out who says that the other one looked better, aren't I? I don't think that the green goes with the beige pants (or the tie) particularly well. I much prefered the grey: subtle and more elegant, and the grey pants appeared to be slimmer and therefore fit better with the svelte cut of the jacket. But apparently I am in a minority here, so don't listen to me!

    Edit: oops, just noticed that actually Cantabrigian has already said much the same.
