Pleat-front trousers

Slouchytrousers_2

Slouchy pleated trousers are back, wa-ay back in the 3rd issue of Fantastic Man magazine last year they had a whole spread of slouchy trousers with pleats you haven’t seen since the ’80s. If you live in London you might have seen Afghani immigrants wearing baggy sand-coloured pleat-front trousers, that the look you’re going for. The pleats add volume, and if carefully done won’t make you look like a moron US banker. The guys in the two images above have perfected the look by keeping it casual, the last thing you want when you’re trying out a new trend is for it to scream "Look! I’m trying something new!" See after the jump for some slouchy trousers and product links.

    Pleats have never looked good. By having a pleat, you instantly lose the shape of the trouser, this making you scruffy.
