New Vogue

What do you all think of these pants? How about a nice linen for Spring?? The jacket's not bad, either, but I have a nice Burda for that with all the adjustments already made.

I love this pattern. The back pockets are great. The question is how will they make the transition from the 20-something model to the 50-something husband.

I was just thinking of getting this pattern, but I disagree about the pockets--all of DH's nicer pants (even the $20 Old Navy khakis) have welt pockets in the back, and I think they look cleaner.

Which means I'll have to learn how to make them, ugh.

Those aren't pants for a 20-something. Look at the way the waist/rise sits in the photo- he's got the waistband pulled down from where it was meant to be (or the rise is too long).

I'm not sure whether to buy this or not. DH associates flat front pants with work pants (like uniform work pants- living near Detroit we see a lot of those), so he's not really a fan. On the other hand, if I dropped the waistband a few inches and turned the back pockets into welt pockets, they might look really nice.

I agree with Firecracker. I think those would look a lot better, especially with
a jacket and in linen, with double or single welt pockets. A little diversion from the
pattern but that's what this gig's all about. Either way, I'm sure he'll love them.

A little edit;
After looking again, with the darts, I would just go double welt.

You mean we don't get the model with the pattern?


On a more serious note - it's a shame the hat isn't part of the pattern. Hubby wants a hat similar to that.

Eh, my husband's better looking than the model. :winkgrin:

I think I saw a similar hat at Sierra Trading Post. Let me know if you see one you wan there and I'll forward the coupon email (there's a new one every day, usually at least another 30% off).

I already have a million patterns with welt pockets. That's what I like about this one. It's a little more casual. If I weren't a lazy seamstress, I could just draft my own pockets for an existing pants pattern. JA is having a Vogue sale at the end of January, so I think I'll fork over the $4 for the pattern to save a few minutes of trial & error.
