    Those look awesome. I'm not normally a fan of pleats but in this case I think they actually add something to the pants.

    Silhouette looks real slick and elegant.

    Now I just need some grown man footwear to pair with those trousers.

    No belt loops? Personally I like having a belt if I'm not wearing a three piece suit even if it's only for aesthetic purposes.

    That actually brings up a good point though, why did I latch on to these beltless trousers? I am not sure myself, I have always had an affinity for beltless trousers as dress pants, I get all my bespoke suits made beltess, and I like the look of a fabric waistband on a shirt. I think with the TOJ beltless slims, they are a unit unto themselves, and a belt would appear to be a stylistic crutch - I am always seeing belts in fits that I dislike, I think belts are mostly unnecessary. I hardly wear a belt, even with my jeans. I like the way a belt can visually break the outfit vertically, but I think beltless pants make a stronger, cleaner impression.

    Even though you can wear these pants with anything, I do think most of them will see biz-caz duty, and so I like the idea of these beltless trousers matching up with a plain dress shirt, nice shoes - that's enough to look really elegant. The feel will be halfway between regular office clothes and sweatpants, but the look will be almost towards tuxedo'esque, buttoned up, even if you aren't all the way. These pants are really elegant. You may notice they're hemmed a bit long for a couple breaks in my fit, the antithesis of MC and styleforum robot fitment - that was on purpose, I wear these pants like that. You can hem them to no break if you want, that works as well, you could 3/4 them, or even make them into shorts - and we'll offer hemming to whichever length you want as well, if anybody wants that. We can't sell them cheaper as shorts because they are basically the same thing as the pants, but the block works as shorts as well.

    I was actually thinking of abusing them with tshirts +sneakers combo? Beltless and elastic band just makes it perfect for my idea. Is. This against your idea though? :eek:
