My first thought was, good god those are ghastly. Then I saw the price tag and almost spit all over my computer.

I imagine some rich kid's mom buying those for his freshman homecoming, complete with a $200 shirt and tie box-set combo. The rich... they're not so different from you and I.

ibLRGhost tells us that those aren't appropriate for the office, but they're "hip and fresh" for hanging out at the club, perfect for pairing with a big egg coat.

Oh. My. God. What the fuck? $1400? These are ridiculous for $14, let alone $1400.

Well,it's not like BB, usually TCR, is always much better.

Be sure to check the price and read the review.

In his defense I almost wanted to like the egg coat. But yeah I get the sense that LRGhost and sprezz are kindred spirits, which is what started us down the road to the En Noir BMX Sweatpant.

I give LR crap, but it's good-natured. I don't really care for his style but I'm glad he posts around here to keep it fresh.

Though c'mon guys, pleats? Embrace your millenialness. Avoid the boomery pleats.

Was almost certainly trolling but some real BB reviews get close.

Different thread, breh. I wouldn't post that stuff here. But regardless, single pleats are fine if your pants fit.

Incorrect.

Pufer on Pleats:

Pleats or no pleats: that is the question

The more traditional look features pleats. Pleats look fine on everybody, and it is not like anyone will ever see them under your jacket anyway. Additionally, if you ever plan on sitting or bending over, they provide more room for movement. Why is this even a question?

It is a question because this is one of the rare occasions where the Fifth Commandment does not interfere with the Sixth. With pleats or without, your pants can potentially be completely unobtrusive (the fronts are always going to be covered either by a table or your suit jacket), and the current style dictates that flat-fronts simply look better on a distinct minority of American males.

The question first is one of fit, and if you are one who can get away with wearing flat-fronts, it then becomes a matter of preference.

First, some background. Pleats have gotten a bad name recently thanks to the khaki revolution. Khakis have inherited the role traditionally held by the baggy odd trouser, which is to say that they’re big, comfortable, semi-casual pants that almost universally look bad on everyone. Khakis are more comfortable if they’re pleated, and fat Americans are nothing if not comfort-seekers, so these ugly pants are almost always of the pleated variety.

Seeing their dads and grandfathers in these billowy abominations, many folks have gained a distinct distaste for the pleated pant, and have moved to the flat-front as a response. However, many of these guys have gone too far, thinking that their flat-front khakis should be cut and worn like jeans. This has resulted in a lot of guys who cannot pull off flat fronts wearing them.

Suit trousers are not khakis, nor are they supposed to be fancy jeans. Unlike khakis and jeans, your suit pants are supposed to float over your body, and drape to the ground, not billow or hug your legs. Basically, they are supposed to fit your waist perfectly, look to be cut just generously enough to get over your hips, then go straight to the ground, with a slight taper.

If you are a skinny person, regardless of whether you are wearing flat-fronts or pleats, your pants should cut the exact same profile. If your pleated trousers look baggy when you’re just standing there, that does not mean that you should have purchased flat-fronts, it means that your pants are cut too big and you should go see your tailor. The only difference between the two styles on a skinny guy will be that one looks a bit busier at the top, and has more expansion room for when he sits or bends over.

^ So sure, they are acceptable.

They still look like shit IMO unless you're fat.

1.) Are black dress shoes ok with a navy suit?

2.) No cologne?

3.) Jacket on/off during interview.
3B.) If off -> recommended deoderant to guard against pit sweat?

1) Black shoes are ok, but I think you'd be better served with a pair in a cordovan / dark brown / auburn area.

2) I would say no cologne. The odds of offending are greater with it on, plus you never know who is sensitive to what smells. Better to play it safe and skip it.

3) Jacket on. No question. You aren't coming in to get comfortable and stay for dinner and drinks. If you are out to lunch on a CB, then maybe off, but follow the crowd. If you are in an interview setting, jacket on.

So I do own these - are these ok? I know wingtips are generally a no-no.

Don't wear those to OCI. I wouldn't wear them anywhere, honestly. They are really awkwardly shaped.

But definitely not to OCI.
