Normally, I am so anti-pleated-pants that I could write a book about it. But there's something about this pair. They're a right proper pair of grey flannels. The cloth is very heavy wool, almost like WWII military stuff, but soft. And the cut is superb through the legs. Plus, the pleats are inverted, and very shallow, and that flap on the right side (left in the picture) actually has a little watch pocket under it. $7.99 at an undisclosed thrift shop.
So the question is this (God, I sound like a presidential debater) : Are these pleats an egregious affront to traditional tastes, or will the Distinguished Members of the Board grant me a zoning variance on this one? (God, I sound like an architecture student.)
