Ask the MB

Wool/Cashmere Pleated Pant via Mark Shale, $175.00
Wool/Cashmere Pleated Pant via Mark Shale. $175.00.
Q: Have pleated pants gone out of style? Are they better for hiding my fat belly or not?
— Scott


A: Yes. Not.

Nothing personal, Scott, but where in the hell do people get the idea that pleats hide fat bellies? Pleats are extra material, puffing out in the wrong place, that actually make you look fatter than you actually are.

The only time we've ever seen successful pleat implementations is on short, slight, thin MBs trying to look a little bigger and older than the real thing.

Stick to flat-fronts, make sure they fit properly, and hit the damn treadmill.

Old Fashioned

  • 1 raw sugar cube
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 3 oz bourbon

On bottom of Old Fashioned glass (what else?) dribble bitters on sugar cube. Muddle. Fill with ice, then with bourbon. Garnish with lemon twist. No, not a thick orange wedge, handful of cherries, or a cup of fruit salad. A simple lemon wedge.
