    Time for a more recent trouser thread.

    I have trousers with side tabs on the waist band, and half on the waistband/half below it (Polo). Am happy with either.

    Time for a more recent trouser thread.

    It is not right to post photos and not say where those clothes are available.

    David Cameron's suit controversy

    I recently bought a Richard James MTM suit from the NYC shop. It is indeed a fused garment. My tailor today confirmed it. Also, the word "surgery" (rather than the word "alterations") more closely approximates the work that this suit needs before I can wear it. I doubt it was made in Italy...

    Anto shirt maker in Beverly Hills

    I am probably going to drive them crazy when I show up, as I intend on bringing to them the following: 1. Agnes B. shirt made in France bought in Paris in 1996; 2. Armani black label shirt bought at Maxfield in 2003; and 3. Clacton & Frinton shirt bought in about 2015. What I will order...

    Anto shirt maker in Beverly Hills

    I was planning on visiting Anto, but canceled my SoCal trip last month due to the Delta variant. I did not want to be in a hotel and have the pool and restaurants closed on me.

    Time for a more recent trouser thread.

    True, but the pleated selection from the vendors you cite is sparse. Literally, almost every single time I try to buy a paid of fp'd trousers, my size is sold out.

    Time for a more recent trouser thread.

    They are. I was less than clear. I should have noted that I was not referring to those in Post #1.

    I have seen the Rolling Stones 11 times, in 3 countries. It now seems not enough.

    Agreed. I would like to know where to buy more forward pleated pants, especially with side tabs.

    Will have to check casatlantic out. These look great.

    Jacket length; Are pleated pants coming back in?

    Just avoid reverse pleats and you will be fine. Armani, once in a blue moon, does forward pleated pants (I had a suit from Saks in 1995 with fp'd pants), and if the price is right, jump on it. Sadly, these suits just fly out of the store, and usually at full price.

    The Rise and Fall of J. Crew

    I remember the USA made navy blazer in a 39R I had from J Crew in about 1993. Double forward pleat wool trousers too. All USA made. I still have a moleskin navy blazer in a 42R from 1995 that still fits - even though I am forced to buy a 46 today. Just goes to show how badly sizes have been...
