These are the pants from a size 36 Vestimente (Tombolini) suit I got for $550. I had the tailor loosen up the waist and seat as much as he possibly could (there wasn't much excess fabric to work with). Even so, the pants feel much tighter on me than any suit pants I've ever had (however, I should note that I don't have much experience with wearing properly-fitted clothing - almost all the suits I've ever owned were far too big on me). I can sit in them with no problem, but when I try spreading my knees and thighs, it gets pretty tight. The point of tightness is just around the bottom of both side pockets. So although I can sit with no problem, crouching to pick something up off the ground is not so care-free. If I want to crouch, I'd either have to bend my knees forward without allowing them to point out and away, or I'd first have to hike the pants up , which gives my knees more range of movement. The other issue is the butt. For example, with my other suit pants, if my underwear gives me a wedgie, I could generally pull it out through the pants. With these pants, pulling a wedgie out is very difficult (without putting my hand inside my pants) because there is not enough loose fabric to allow me to fish the underwear out of my butt-crack. I'm wondering if this just comes with the territory for good-fitting pants. I'm willing to sacrifice some comfort for the "fitted" look...I just need to know if it looks acceptable rather than foolish.
