Where's your guns?
In the picture.
Lol, thanks man.
I have knock knees too, and even with bespoke/custom, its not always possible to get a perfect drape.
Great fit today, btw.
I think I agree. Otherwise outstanding.
Clags, that is about as classic a Clags lok as you will see.
If I felt my legs could take cuffs in RTW, would do it.
I don't have any disagreements with what you say. What I would emphasize, especially to people who are just starting with figuring out their fits etc., is that there are aesthetically pleasing aspects of any piece of clothing (cuffs, button-stance, jacket length), but that one should also be aware of how one's body is shaped (or in my case, misshapen) and that this sometimes means that you have to give a little. So, no cuffs for me (and actually, I don't mind the look).
My pants break fine but it's due to that trick I mentioned above, which keeps the shape at the cuff (without the heel guard across, yes, I have the problem you describe).
I don't know, fit aside, no cuffs just look unfinished.
Hmmm...I think they look uncuffed.
A very American view.
Edit: I guess I should back off that one...
It's also a very European thing to dismiss anything they don't like as American.
I believe a blue shirt would have served you better, MrChris. As Foo would say, the white cuts the eye.
X-Post from the Challenge
I have no hair on the top of my head. Despite my custom title, I can't grow a beard like Murl, Stitchy, or Rob. But my knees aren't bowed or knocking...
Mr. Chris, the white shirt is perfect.
80% of my trousers have cuffs...
