Shots of the animals we live with are NEVER gratuitous. The pants are great funs. I prefer them with the high tops and black leather look. I love your photo journals.

I agree with Gloria, the high tops/leather/scarf look works well, and your photo journals are fun. :-)

I bought a very small amount of that fabric in another colorway from an Etsy seller--she sold it as Japanese and it was much more than $1.50. Needless to say, I love that fabric! The pants are great.

Great pants (and thanks for the alterations info). Be sure to post pictures of the party(ies). Give the pups a pet for me.

Cool pants! I love the flowery combination, I wish I would see a guy dressed like that in real. He would make my day. The fit of your pants is perfect.

Neat pair of jeans and a great review! . and the beat goes on . . . . Um, by the way - your pattern photo comes up as a ladies dress.

You get more sewing done in one day that I get done in a couple of months... Another great project!

Peter: You don't have to be invited to a “happening party”-you're a happening party all by yourself! I love your reviews!

Keep doing what your doing. Love to read your entries and little story line with each one.

I am assuming that this is a vintage pattern and the nightgown showed up for that number! Great pants and buying something that avant garde for men would be cost prohibitive for most people. The fit is first rate too. Great job. Hope you wear them on Saturday; I think that you said you were coming to PR day?

THERE'S the word I was thinking of: avant garde. Sounds so much better than wacky. (ha ha) Thank's for the comments everybody and yes, provided it doesn't rain, I will wear them to PR dsy in NYC on Saturday. That or the little black dress!

Your photo stories are the best. My dogs also like to get on my fabric while I'm trying to cut it out. But they are much bigger and worse than gratuitous; they can be downright discouraging!

great job, Peter! i love the floral pants. the jeans styling really works for the scale of the print. love it with the sneaks and leather. absolutely fun and fabulous!

I like that jacket a lot. I'd love a trench coat from this fabric!

Great pants, great fit! I'm jealous that you found warp-print fabric... I'm always looking for it and can never find it.

Peter I think you should wear the pants and jacket's fabulous and so you!

I agree, pants and jacket together. Your friends won't lose you!!!! They look ace!

Pete, that 'suit' is a great fit! You have to wear it together! Elton John would love that suit...if only he had your Bod!!

Another great job, Peter. I disagree about wearing the jacket and pants together--unless, of course, you draw your fashion inspiration from the octogenarian cruiseship crowd. However, separately they are great. I'm just sayin',,,

Now that's what I call a GUTSY suit. I love it! :o)

Love the suit - you can really carry that off so well - I think it is your lovely spirit.

It's a rather riotous outfit that somehow works. Here in Texas you'd definitely want to wear the pieces separate, but it sounds like they will work together where you like. OUTSTANDING execution of both pieces- You always do such stunning work!
