    Yes, but....
    I'd be curious to see if they'd still look the best if they were pleated. That ad was the only one that didn't give you any opportunity to see the closure. (Now I have to think about whether closures differ enough that I want to see them before I buy.)

    Hmmm good point. It also helps that the pants look fresh pressed.

    My point was that when the pants are folded over they don't look awkward, which they often do when hanging on a hanger (in my experience)

    Definitely a RLPL tie. Look up the RN number and you'll see the maker is Ralph Lauren. And that script writing on a purple label is reserved for, well, Purple Label.

    Anyone familiar with Bel y Cia? Seems like it is mostly Spanish bespoke. Bought a button down (M)
