a couple of new pants

photo from the Sartorialist, I think

Inspired by this image of Thom Browne and his posse (well, a picture of the hems of their trousers at least), I decided to have a couple of pairs of wide-cuff flood-length pants made: one in “Thom Browne gray” and another in a dark gray-green.  

Notice the two-inch cuffs on the pants.  It’s the details that matter!

The lighter gray pair serendipitously matches a Topman waistcoat I have had for more than a year now.  

UO specs, Topman waistcoat, H&M plaid shirt, Cartier watch on blue croc strap, tailor-made pants, Miu Miu laceups

    The pants are beautiful. You’re lucky to have such a great tailor. Is the labor expensive in Manila?

    I adore that sartorialist image and your new pants and they way in which you’ve styled them are both spot on! I’m jealous of your cheap labour!

    Impressive! Will you share details about your tailor? I’ve been trying to look for a good one for quite a while…

    my life: My tailor is Mang Jun at Toppers, located in Katipunan tel no 024367938.

    With the volume of people asking about my tailor, I think a post featuring my tailor is in order.

    Love this look. I’m totally jealous; finding menswear that fits me is impossible since Hedi left Dior – and I couldn’t even afford Dior to begin with.. :)
