    Shall I just get them tapered 2 inches, to shut you all up (they're 11.5", which is a little wider than most of my trousers [~9,5"])? :foo:

    I'm really trying, to not give caseyfud the idea, that he's right over him just misreading things.

    Ianiceman, you are in Houston, right? Hamilton Shirts stocks Thomas Mason fabric and if they don't have what you want they can get it easily. Check them out, they've got some beautiful lightweight fabrics on hand.

    More than 2"? They would be too tight. Shorter? IMO, shorts should reach the top of your knees, if they're not sport shorts; I see people rocking shorter shorts but not often.

    Well then don't alter them. There is really no point wasting money to end up with skinny long shorts - it will look as bad as the current configuration.

    Wait, you smell that?
    

    I guess the point is, it appears you bought and are wearing shorts that were cut for the masses. As such, I would say they look how they would fit a non-fat American tourist. Meaning not remarkable, and verging on thanks for the pic, but who cares? I think tapering would improve the fit (don't think you should shorten them because the rise appears to be kinda long - so it would look weird). Of course you don't have to, but it was just some constructive criticism.

    I've been meaning to check this place out - just googled it and it's about a mile from my gaff. Thanks a lot for the tip!

    You shouldn´t really listen to caseyfud because he pretty much dresses quite bad and astoundingly boring most of the time... but yeah, this is not a very flattering look on you. It really does come off a tad weird.
