With Spring nuances on the horizon, I decided to put together an illustration reiterating points from my previous post.
For me, these pair of carrot fit trousers represent the nicest fit I've seen currently. While many people overly worry about the seat of the pants (I can admit that it sometimes irks me too, :/) I always give jealous scrutiny to the area immediately below the knee. If the leg opening is too wide or bunches excessively, it's time to put them back on the rack. I'm in college, tailors are expensive, rampant recessions are on the march. Such factors dissuade me from wearing ready-mades.Some may take a stance on the other extreme, but from trying on hundreds of types of slim/smart bottoms, I can honestly say that so many companies lose sight of a proper fit. Making money on the masses is understandable. Method is the soul of business after all, right? Befriending your local tailor is all well and dandy, although the plight of ill-fitting pieces continues to keep us up to our eyes in poorly executed OTR-wear. For the record, I say no to sack fits of any kind (for my sake at least). But to continue...
While remaining in its infancy, the rapid recurrence of carryover between classic fitting garments and slim/smart fits in menswear is something to take note of. Study closely the looks of Thom Brown, Lucas Ossendrijver, Donatella Versace from their last two seasons- these are just a few that definitely fit into this gamut. Slowly, and I mean VERY slowly, is my interest becoming accustomed to classic fits put forth through gentlemen bygone. Many would conclude that my tastes parallel the growth of the industry - I say to them that sometimes you have to run before you walk :)
Have a great day!
