    The thing I like about Panta the best is the imagination in the fabrics offered. Some really neat stuff that you really can't find anywhere else (at least I can't) but isn't so out there that I wouldn't wear it.

    I found the cut to be quite slim, but not uncomfortably so. IMO Comparable to the few higher-end Mabitex that I own. It also has some beautiful buttoning. I should actually include detail shots of the pant/fabric itself.

    oh word button fly?

    Yes, some pics if the details would be nice......whenever you have a moment.

    Woe-- again, those G&Gs rock. You have a very interesting style that took me some time to catch on to. I really like it!

    Panta fabric is mostly jobber fabric.

    SC fits great IMO. Liking the lapels and elbow patches.

    I like the jacket, but I have to disagree about the fit. It's just too small. Nice to see A&B doing well.

    I can see many folks on this board that have an eye toward more classic styling cringe at the way some of your clothes fit, and of course fit is all part of style, blah blah blah...but at the end of the day, you have such a cool vibe and swagger as part of your style and your ability to put things together makes others with their perfectly draping pants, divot-less shoulders, soporific ties and draped chests look irrelevant. Of course, you'd look that much better if you addressed some of the fit issues. [​IMG]

    Agreed. Woe's jacket is a bit tight, but he has an uncanny knack for pulling things off even when something is really off. I believe he used to have a bit of a problem with his collars, but that didn't stop him from still pulling off better fits than 99.99% of the posters here. FWIW, I think his jacket would fit much better if he hadn't stuffed a scarf underneath.

    Also agree about Panta's fabrics. You just can't beat the material that Ed's pants come in.

    It probably give him latitude to try all sorts of interesting things you can't do when you are selling to the buyers for major department stores.

    It doesn't seem too small to me; a little less waist suppression, perhaps, but the fit looks pretty awesome.

    looks very satorial/satorical ..whatever.. personally i feel fit is consistently a bit small, but looks pleasing.

    only qualm is the orange gloves- was it necessary in this ensemble? Looks like you're trying too hard to constrast colors. If you take off the gloves, as you would need to when indoors, showing some cuff, watch and bare hands would be more natural.

    oh word button fly?

    The pair of panta I own have have a button fly. I'm not actually enamored with them. Its like the buttons are weirdly spaced so that it pulls in an odd way. At first I'd thought that it was just the way they were lying down, but the oddness is actually exacerbated in three dimensions. I'm thinking of having my tailor put in a zip... which seems like such a retro-grade step. Still, the fabric is nice enough.
