    skinny tailored trousers - yay or nay?

    Hello gentlemen

    I just bought these trousers from Paul Smith (70% couldn't resist).

    (I realise that i wear them too low in the front, that's just me being sloppy when trying them on...)

    They are very slim fitting as you can see (skin-tight around the ankles), I'm not sure what to think about them. Stylish or faux pas?
    What do you guys think? Should i keep them? And if yes, how much break (they're unhemmed)?
    Regards
    Johan

    They're good, agree with Pins, keep it at minimal to no break, any kind of substantial bunching will distort the line of the leg.

    They're nice - more slim than skinny (I would personally swerve skinny on tailored trousers). Agree with the above too - minimal break.

    Many thanks for your comments. When I sit down, they're skin-tight everywhere, not uncomfortable, but definitely tight-fitting. I'm a little worried that the fabric will stretch around the knees when I sit down, and thus make them baggy around the knees... Do you think that will be a problem (they're made from 65 % wool and 35 % cotton)?

    Close-up of the fabric, I really like the pattern: http://sdrv.ms/18gd3Rt

    If you don't want them I will have them. Do you have link to them? Would be interested in betting myself a pair.

    I haven't been able to find them anywhere. But they're from the PS collection.
