As I've said before in other threads about TB, I don't like the way TB suits are worn by his hordes either. But that isn't to say I don't like his gear. The first time I saw/tried on his stuff I had never heard of the guy but thought his jackets were my cup of tea. Then I started seeing pics of the flooded trousers, too short sleeves etc and was a bit surprised but whatever floats yer boat, right? His jackets are cut slim, are a bit shorter in length than normal, have thin lapels...all elements I like in my suit jackets, regardless of who's name is sewn on the tag. Believe me, I GET the Pee Wee comparisons and chuckled at it the first time it was presented. There's a lot of stuff by Dior Homme that could be just as easily referenced to an absurd pop image, but the way a designer likes to portray his line doesnt necessarily mean you have to wear it that way. "Admit defeat"..?? huh, I didnt realize that style was a war that produced victors and losers. If TB *really really* wanted you to wear high waters, he'd sell his trousers pre-hemmed with no extra material to let down. *btw, if one follows Mr Browne's paradigm on how his suits be worn (or any other designer/brand/fashion-aesthetic for that matter), I'd say that they were seriously lacking any personal style.
