Men in the know are at odds about the new guys’ trend—read on and decide for yourself


Marshall simon, Proprietor, Gwynn’s of Mount Pleasant
“Men’s things don’t change that much, so it’s nice to see new trends like this contemporary, cropped pant emerge. These pants should fall right around the ankle and be worn without socks. On top, I suggest a slimming, body-conscious jacket or a sweater jacket in a fitted material.”

“I’m not a fan. It’s too Pee-wee Herman for me. If you must, must do it, just have your tailor do a mini-crop. It’s fun to show off a bit of a colorful sock, but I bet you are going to be tossing those pants in two seasons when the trend is over.”
