High Rise with Pleats
I love this photo of our friends over at The Armoury. The guy on the right is Jake, who’s wearing a pair of high waisted, grey flannel trousers built with single pleats. All too often, I read bloggers and fashion writers say that high-waisted trousers and pleated pants should be categorically avoided, or that you should only wear pleats if you’re a heavy set man. That’s a bunch of nonsense. You’d be surprised how good both can look if the tailoring is done well.
One upside to having a higher rise is that your shirt and belt don’t peek out when your jacket is buttoned, as your trouser’s waistline will be closer to your jacket’s buttoning point. That said, a higher-rise can look great when the jacket is open or closed, as evidenced by Alan and Jake above.

JERRY: Oh, that was a strike! Did you see that?!
SALES WOMAN: Would you like to see the rest of the apartment, Mister, um—
JERRY: Eh…Varnsen. Kel Varnsen. Actually, this room intrigues me. Why is it called the TV room?
SALES WOMAN: Well, it’s—
JERRY: Balk?! How was that a balk?! You have any snacks?
SALES WOMAN: Mr. Varnsen, if you like the apartment, I should tell you I’ve also had some interest from a wealthy industrialist.
JERRY: Not Pennypacker!
SALES WOMAN: You know him?
JERRY: I wish I didn’t. Brace yourself, madam, for an all-out bidding war. But this time, advantage Varnsen!
