On the Street…..Full Cut Flannels, Florence

Just like the previous post, this look could be great on a man or woman..


Maybe the most important trend at Pitti Uomo this season is unisex fashion!


ps  I’ve been wearing short hemmed, slim pants for so long that this softer, fuller leg pant looks so interesting right now.  When I go to buy my first pair of full pants, after a long absence from my closet,  my attention will not be on the width of the leg  or depth of cuff but how the pants fit around my hips.  The key to keeping “full cut” pants from looking overwhelming is to make sure they still fit  at the hips and waist.  If the pants are too big at the hips and waist  it’ll look like you just bought the wrong size.

    Not to be rude Scott, but can short people pull off fuller leg pants without looking shorter or like they are drowning in them?
    Whenever I remember a really great full leg pant look, it’s usually been on a taller person.
    I’m totally willing to be proved wrong, but I just can’t see it looking good in my head.

      I’m 5’3″ and I have never been able to pull off fuller pants, or specifically pleated pants. They make me look heavy. If you are tall, they are great. Or if you are short and super skinny, they are great. But if you are average to heavy AND short….. they just widen you.

      I agree though that you MUST get the waist and hips to fit, eg. buy a petite size so that they don’t swallow you. I have had some luck that way, but generally I look better with a pant that is regular to slim cut and has very little going on as far as pleats or pockets, gathering, etc. In fact I generally look for pants with nothing but a zipper. No pockets, no anything.

    I’m loving this look! Too bad “LV” is so plain in sight… I hate it when brands do that. It especially works with the pants and shoes… I’m getting a Dandy-tracksuit-vibe! Good Spotting!

    I cannot get on board with clothing that sweeps the ground (biologist), but I would commit murder for that coat, and I can’t even see the whole thing.

    Not really stylish with a label of LV to show off. It is not civilized the label to show. Nevertheless wonderful material.

    • Kineas

      January 9, 2013 at 8:15 am

      Absolutely. True style never show off, and, furthermore, never wear LV.

      • SQ

        January 9, 2013 at 12:33 pm

        Never wear Louis Vuitton? They defined spring fashion for 2012 (and brought Kate Moss back to the catwalk)! I don’t think Alexa Chung, Kate Moss and Lana del Rey were ALL wrong….Just because a label has at one point in fashion history been associated with a certain type of people with bad taste (just like Burberry) doesn’t mean that that brand should lose all fashion credibility. The brand has transformed the fashion world since 1850s and recently held a beautiful and moving exhibition in Paris that was almost as fantastic as the Met Alexander McQueen. They also collaborate with some of the world’s greatest modern artists, such as Takashi Murakami and Yayoi Kusama. Most importantly of all, they make the most beautiful closed, as proved by their most recent fall Paris fashion week show, unanimously adored by the press.

        The LV symbol which you criticise has an eminent fashion history based on Oriental Victorian designs from the 1890s – it is not simply some tacky modern design.

        Furthermore, fashion as we know it today would not even exist with LMVH, arguably the most important fashion company ever.

          I find the need to comment on this as I agree with SQ. I happen to own a very beautiful and rare LV mink stole. Although I dont wear it often, it is truly a beautiful piece of clothing AND art!

        • Simon

          January 10, 2013 at 6:06 am

          I mean to say that it is not chic – with which label whatsoever – gaudy show. What LV is concerned, read the book by Dana Thomas (deluxe), then you get a different picture of luxury brands. The quality of LV is not what it used to be. Family Vuitton produced centuries ago only for the aristocrats, then it was top quality. Now it produces for the masses. And produced primarily in China.

    You’re right, it can be an unisex look. I also agree about the full cut pants!

    Love the colour combination, but I’m still on the fence about the pants…

  27. Nomadic D.

    January 9, 2013 at 7:24 am

    Totally agree with you on the cut, so important to make sure it fits up top so it’s obvious you’re doing it on purpose and not just a crazy slob. But I have to say, when pant hems drag on the ground like this… I actually objectively like the way it looks, but I can’t help but think of all that city grime… Too icky to even contemplate. They’ve gotta look like they’re touching the ground, but actually just barely be skimming it, which is a hard thing to accomplish. Tricky business, this.


    January 9, 2013 at 7:37 am

    I LOVE the contrasting ideas in this outfit. Oh how well they work!

  29. debbie

    January 9, 2013 at 7:48 am

    Another key is not letting the hems drag the ground and get ruined.

    I have tried to wear wide/baggy pants with flats for a long time now but I have given up. My 5’3″ just doesn’t justify it… It’s hard but sometimes you have to ignore trends in order to stay true to your style and body shape.

    January 9, 2013 at 9:12 am

    I love that coat! Looks amazingly comfy-chic.

    I do agree with you in regards to the wide-leg pant look [re: fit on the hips and waist]. If anyone goes all over baggy, they’d look like they’re on their way to a warehouse party. All nighter!!

    I’m not one to wear flannel, but in the winter I do sleep in flannel and fleece and it is quite lovely.

  38. Sevan

    January 9, 2013 at 9:33 am

    Grey flanel reminds me of cashmere, soft, confortable, elegant, but the logo on the coat is too obvious and the pants too long.
    As for wearing full leg pants, it can be tricky. I found a pair that is not as full (I’m not tall), that I wear with heels and the proportions are balanced.

  39. Andy

    January 9, 2013 at 9:51 am

    That’s one trend I’m going to politely ignore.

  40. Sven

    January 9, 2013 at 11:16 am

    need to see the full outfit, but really am not digging this at all. fine to have a fuller trouser, but this looks sloppy and over length. it will also require constant drycleaning as the hem drags along the ground. coupled with the sneakers and the coat/cardigan, all I am picturing is Jeff Bridges rolling a fat one before going bowling in the Big Lebowski….

    • Alex

      January 9, 2013 at 6:13 pm

      Nah, Lebowski had style. This just looks sloppy. I’m usually dressed like that when I take out the trash on a cold sunday evening.

    I’m not a skinny pant person (I’m built like a football player) and love full cut pants. You’re right-fitted at the hips and waist is very important. Hemmed above the shoe is still important to me.

    Hem. Your. Damned. Cuffs.


    Grime, schmime – they’ll get worn away and frayed to a mess.

    Pants should not touch the ground while you walk.

    (I don’t care if they’re above the shoe. I do care that they’re not touching the ground.

    Because it’ll ruin them.)

    Okay, I’m going to say it and realize it’s not fashionable (and that Scott himself is an advocate of the look as are all those gorgeous Italian men), but I really don’t like the men’s fashion of short, pegged pants with ankles showing. As a woman, it just turns me off. I see these great outfits on Scott’s blog for men and then I scroll down to the bare ankles — ugh.

    I think these loose pants are cool, but they are too long and will look horrible really soon.

    So, I’ve said it. Am I alone in this? Do other women really love the look of “high water” trousers above the ankles with the ankles showing? Men? It’s a really visceral response. It just looks very unsexy and juvenile to me.

    • melanie

      January 9, 2013 at 5:44 pm

      i’m with you, M Ruth – my favorite pant on a man is one that has a slight break, comes down below the ankle but above the shoe heel, flat-front, and fitted around waist and hips. the flood look to me is sloppy (go figure), like the pants shrank in the wash. it also doesn’t suit the usual proportions of a man to my eye.

    • Martine

      January 9, 2013 at 7:18 pm

      Really? I love it. Especially when its not too short. Just a bit of sock showing. Its sleek and shows off the guys shape because there are no folds. But I like the fuller pant leg with a bit of drag as well. So…Not in agreement But everyone has their own views on such things. In fact the flat front neither slim not full pants are so boxy almost no guy can look good in them…that and I have never seen it look good. ESPECIALLY in Khakis. Thats just bad in my eyes. Either skinny and a bit short, or else full and a bit long.

    January 9, 2013 at 10:01 pm

    hemmed at the right length is also important no matter it is slim fit or full cut. this one doesn’t look nice, just like putting on the wrong length.

  55. une chatte grise

    January 10, 2013 at 12:09 pm

    If the pants were a tad narrower and just a wee bit shorter–hitting the ground around the heel instead of pooling on the ground up to the instep–I think they’d look great. (I’m neither germ-phobic nor averse to some well-earned cuff fraying, obviously; I just think these look a little off, proportion-wise. Then again, I suspect that that unconventional, exaggerated effect is exactly what the wearer was going for.) The coat would be interesting if it didn’t have that tacky logo.
