Everything Old is New Again.

A quick perusal of runway photos and the newest items at Mr. Porter tells me that the pleated trouser is back! It makes sense. The original skinny jeans hipsters are a bit older, and those who have to dress in something more than “athlesiure sweatrousers” still want to feel comfortable.

The good news, for those of you shuddering at the thought of a full-on triple-pleat, balloon-legged revival, is that the cut of these trousers is more modest and perhaps, influenced by the well-tailored silhouettes of the immediate past.

Remember that the key to wearing a fuller-ish cut trouser is to combine it with a more tailored blazer and shirt, or sweater, and an appropriate shoe. Happy days are here again!

Pleats and a classic look done right!

  1. Chris, that sounds great to me because I have always liked the look of pleated slacks. Besides, now I can pull some slacks out of storage and start wearing them again. Hurray!!!

  2. I too am glad to see this. It has always seemed to me that flat front looks fine if you are standing/walking the majority of the time. But if like me you are constantly sitting behind a desk and then standing up to meet clients, the flat front quickly became a creased front and looked so sloppy.

    Plus I just want to say I still check your blog almost every day and am always delighted when I see a new post!

  3. Dearest Chris,
    Well, I welcome them back as well.
    Far more stylish looking than the rather cropped version we’ve seen in combination with bare-footed shoes. Above all, a too short blazer that made the look even worse.
    Stupid design and always posing with the younger generation…
    This is really stylish.
    Happy weekend to you!
