I have ventured into the world of the no break cut on my new suit....my ankles feel so naked right now.

Oh No

Flat fronted too, I assume ?

You don't look hot standing still. Well done.

1 million percent flat front, I can't believe I ever was on the pleat side of this argument....the looks is just awful. I made the switch to flat front about 6 years ago and it was the best choice I ever made. I'm down right ashamed I was so staunchly team pleat at one time.

Now the no break took some getting used to, especially when sitting down and seeing how high your pants ride up. But the cut is perfect when standing. Still an adjustment, but I got a ton of compliments on how well my suit fit on Saturday night.

Team flat-front for sure, but not ready to join in on the high waters.

I've worn a suit exactly one time in the last 8 years. Currently do not own a suit that fits

I bought a new one last year, mainly because the dry cleaner ruined my blue suit and the black suit I bought for my wedding feels a little formal for things like client meetings and/or (hopefully sooner than later) job interviews. I wear it a couple of times a year, tops. I suppose I do still own an older suit that may fit if I lose a few lbs. I want to get a new gray suit... haven't owned one of those in 15 years.

IMO it's good to have a few because you never know when you might need them.

Chay, this may be a dumb question, do you wear socks with the no break?

I didn't the other night and probably won't most of the time.

Now I want to clarify....I'm not talking about the full on exposed ankle look like some models have gone to lately. My pants meet the tops of the shoes, but don't fold down onto the shoe.

Yeah, I should have one. I can never seem to get motivated to go spend $500 or whatever when I may not wear it in the forseeable future and who knows if it would fit when I do eventually need it.

FWIW I recommend Last Call. You can get what I think is a better quality suit than you'd find at Macy's/Dillard's for anywhere from $300-$500.
