    I personally like the straight legs, and for that matter so does Tom Ford, but I think a really minor taper like you're discussing won't ruin everything.

    FWIW, this fit is all-around a good look for you. And I'm not just saying that because you look like you might have my brake line cut if I don't.

    Then buy some that fit you so that you can fasten both buckles? Otherwise looks terrible, sorry....

    +1. I also have a high instep and can't wear most of the double monks that I try on, but there are a few brands that I can wear comfortably. Buy what fits.

    Just received these in the mail. They fit a little too big, but I'll have to make them work.

    Wow! Lots o' feed back. Let's get busy.


    All my life I've been a guy who wanted the slimmest possible pant legs even though my waistline dictated a more full "husky" cut. I hated it when my mother bought "husky" clothes for me. :plain: My grandmother, who lived with us, was a seamstress in a Navy town and she would take pity on my bagginess and slim the legs with a nice taper but given my relative heft, I doubt that I projected the look that my imagination told me that I was giving off. Now, it seems, I can actually buy clothes that fit the way that I want them to fit! Even so, old habits die hard and slim is not always slim enough for me.

    I tried them on in the store before bringing them home. If what I saw in the mirror translates into a fit pic, I will be a very happy guy indeed. I had not given much thought to the effect that you describe but I'll let you and the others be the judge of that. Pics to follow on or about Monday since that's the first chance I'll have to suit up.



    There was a time when it was this or that.

    At the time, I can recall thinking, "He not a nice man." before realizing the truth of your words. Also, someone else referred to you as Ian and suddenly ...

    As I've said before, I moderate the "Off Topic" section (religion/politics/TSA hatred/etc.) of a car forum and my skin got thick really quickly. Thanks for the critical appraisals. They helped me understand. Mind, I still don't get it when one of you guys says, "I wish the buttoning point was a half inch higher..." but I figure some of that will come as time passes.


    Fedora!
    ;)


    Thanks!

    thanks for the advice lufty! In terms of the sizing issue, I think me and you are on opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of how we prefer our sportcoats to fit. I like mine a little shorter and fitted and i wouldnt be at all comfortable in a suit with the excess room you have. I can easily button the coat, but rarely have my coat buttoned when im walking around.

    You can certainly choose not to wear your suits like Lufty, but he's not advising you to do that. He's telling you that *your* stuff isn't flattering you.

    Toward the end of furthering the conversation and getting you toward where *you* want to be, can you name a couple of folks who are examples of your desired aesthetic? Are you a Spoo man? Wale? Vox? oldog/oldtrix? Spoozy? Crusty? Foo? Aeglus? I think you'll get more useful feedback if folks know what you're aiming for.
