    The pants ruin the fit. The bomber is reallly awesome. try a straight cut proper wool trouser (not something techy) and you're gold. Charcoal or dark grey would be great.

    More minor quibble would be the t neck could be sized up or at least slightly longer

    yeah you're too swole for those pants. you definitely need something that creates a straighter silhouette

    I also have this fit from when I got the jacket in and tried them on. I think the trousers work better, but I think I'd rather have some black suede belgian loafers here, as the Carminas loafers here are a bit too red.

    This is fantastic. I wanna see more of the shirt.


    No it felt good. I prefer wearing it as a skirt but floral pants and skirt would have blown my coworkers minds.

    I do! I have the same issue. I don't really wear denim anymore, but I do have a pair with ~8% elastane, so stretch fabrics help with casual pairs. I'm also a very big proponent of getting things made to measure. I have a pair from Lanieri that are my absolute favorites, since I got measured in person, and they fit like a dream. Pleats and carrot cuts help as well in my experience. I'm still feeling out the whole pants thing myself as well.

    Pleated and tapered pants: Lemaire does this really well, and so does old CdG and the less-wide Yohji pants.

    Yea, I tried the lemaire x uniqlo stuff for f/w and It didn't work out for me. Mainly because I'm 5'7" and I think their long tops + oversized shoulders + oversized sleeves made me look like a midget (even though at 5'7" i think I'm a legal midget).

    I can only imagine what your comments would be if you were voicing your opinion on the classic menswear WIWT

    I'm your height, so understand your plight. Ironically, I've found that non-tapered, roomy straight-leg cuts make me seem taller due to the straight line created, assuming a clean break.

    Would totally work as a skirt though, looks weird as a cape with your outfit. BAD CAPE!

    There used to be some really good standout when I followed it but it was years ago. I own a bunch of suits/ties/menswear shoes etc. so I also know this stuff, I just find the dandy part not that cool. GQCool :'(

    Qlomaire is not a good substitute for Lemaire though.
