I actually really like pleated pants. Not sure that citing a movie reference as a justification for your fickle opinion constitutes as an opinion worth noting. Pleated pants, when cut and fitted correctly, add a flair to the otherwise boring convention of men’s pants.
This man knows exactly which colors compliment his coloring. Love his jacket, pants, shirt, tie, and sunglasses. He would be an adonis if he only had a slightly neater haircut, but that’s just my personal preference. Stunning! http://theSTYLetti.com
A most elegant and evocative picture. It seems straight out of “In search of Lost Time” by Marcel Prosut. Indeed, as I’ve said before, this personage (I believe he is Brazilian?) and frequent subject of your photos on this here website, looks like Marcel Proust himself. Next time offer him a madeleine pastry and a shoot in Deauville…
Everyone’s harping on the pleated pants. But, come on, this guy is not rocking Target’s next season denim line, available for your timid ass to pull off the rack and go watch football at Buffalo Wild Wings in. Which is to say it’s not for everyone. BUT! That’s also not to say that it couldn’t inspire any and all. That cool pistachio-ice-cream-green set against that bright white. That alone earns major points. And to be honest, those pleats are secondary, if not tertiary to the whole ensemble.
My only gripe-and it’s a very small one- is the tie tucked in so high on the chest. It would be a bit better tucked in one rung lower on the shirt. Or better yet, sub out the tie for an ascot.
Agreed. If you don’t like them don’t wear them, but pleats are a classic that will never disappear. Dress pants aren’t supposed to fit like jeans, and if they do, they look stupid. Lauren Hutton said, “Fashion is what you are offered four times a year. Style is what you choose.” I challenge anyone to look at Cary Grant or the Duke of Windsor in pleats and tell me it doesn’t work and tell me they don’t look fabulous.
