    The photos I've seen show a little too many gimmicks for my taste. I think one or two affectations are fine, ewspecially for the more sober patterns and colours the Italians favour, but more than that is too much.

    The second picture is nice.

    ---One of the things I love about narrow pants is that they display those lovely shoes we all love so much. My pants are real close to this length, maybe a tad longer. I had to work with Despos to get a slit tilt higher in the front, at about 4cm off the heel, and it seems to balance and flow better. Definitly can be a bit tricky to get the perfect look in your own eye.

    I've never worn the double dimple. But its interesting.
