I've been going on and on and on about pleated pants over the last few weeks, so when the opportunity came for me to snap up a pair, I jumped at the chance. Last week I started a new enterprise - personal shopping. Basically, I take men out to a whole bunch of stores, get them to try on copious amounts of clothes then tell them what looks best (in my humble opinion). It's all about building a wardrobe from the basics up. I was working with a middle aged man last Friday, and before beginning our expedition we had a look through his closet. While dissecting its innards (rows and rows of white Kenzo shirts and blue and cream cargo shorts), I came across this pair of massive beige Polo by Ralph Lauren pleated pants. They were 15 years old, lightweight, voluminous and tapered at the bottom. I had to have them. The gentleman was kind enough to oblige me, and I am now the proud owner of the best pants ever. So far I've had conflicting reactions. My male friends love them (and just quietly I think Dayne wants to steal them for himself), but my flatmate Anna said something about them being the ugliest things she'd ever seen. Huge call!
What say you? More shots below.
I LIKE YOU!
