You see what I'm talking about? "That's some Bunny Rogers sh!t" was what I said to my sartophile brother when I saw the first Phineas Cole catalog. We immediately began harboring the hope that it would allow Paul Stuart to go chase after the "slim" crowd and keep making things like pleated trousers in their main line. This hope has been largely dashed. Still, and unlike 99% of the slim-fit stuff that gets pedaled with a minimalist, Mad Men aesthetic of boredom and constipation, the Phineas stuff is as interesting and inventive as men's clothing can be.
Are you sure that their "tuc pleat" is the same thing as a forward pleat?
