- Reaction score
Classical tailoring seems to envisage either double pleats (forward or reversed), or no pleats. Why? I always thought that double pleats spoil the cleanliness of the look and create unnecessary bulk, especially if the trousers don't sit at the natural waist but a little lower. Yet a single pleat is quite appealing as it prevents the trouser crease from springing out of nowhere. So my bespoke trousers are all either flat front or with single (forward) pleats. Where and why do I go wrong?
