Leave them shits alone, bruh!

If you are referring to the trouser legs of AAS's suit for today, I must agree - leave well enough alone.
I took the pants to a neighborhood tailor and not my regular guy downtown. This was back when I was into slimmer trousers. He did a decent job, but not as good as my regular guy. I think they look good when I’m standing, but they don’t feel good when I’m sitting. They hug my calves and ride up when I’m sitting. I also gained a few pandemic pounds, but I’ve been meaning to have these let out for a few years now. My regular guy is in the process of letting out several pairs of pants for me at the moment. I’ll assess their success, before taking this pair in. I certainly don’t want to make things worse.

General question.......What are your thoughts on grey flannel chalk stripe pants as a solo act? I see a pair for sale but I'm wondering if they will appear as orphaned suit pants when worn.

Your instincts are correct. They will look like orphaned suit pants and you will have wasted your money. Step away from the computer and don't push "buy."

Nice jacket, not a fan of the slim trousers myself but the overall look is good. Love a good pair of suede loafers.
Thanks man! Appreciate your answer! I love the jacket, it is so well fitting and really classic - it's from Massimo Dutti.

Wonderful ensembles all around, but can somebody explain to me the allure of penny and tassled loafers? In South America it screams "you are a lazy old who doesn't care about menswear and gave up"; it is almost worse than wearing sneakers with suits. Look at the awesome fits by @Betelgeuse: his Carmina complements the suit perfectly. I am not going to give you my opinion on tasseled anything. I am glad that style of footwear does not exist around me. Of course, "de gustibus non est disputandum" and all that, but in my eyes, any classic menswear attire with a loafer would be improved by the right oxford or derby (I like monks and double-monks, but also get why people dislike them). Is it an American thing? Northern European? Or just variety for variety's sake (that would be the most reasonable explanation, I believe, but I stand to be corrected)?

You do realise that only yesterday @Betelgeuse posted a pic wearing his magnificent Jon Lobb ‘Lopez’ penny loafers, right?

I’m sure the “allure” of loafers is just a matter of personal preference more than anything. Maybe regional bias is at play here?
