We always bitch to each other about how hard it is to come up with something to say about guys on the red carpet and what they’re wearing, complaining in that first-world-problems kinda way that, “It always comes down to collar, hem, and ‘get your hands out of your pockets.”
And here comes Darren, eager to be our latest visual aid:

Oh, brothers of a certain age (and you know who you are), could you possibly see yourself going back to the the David Byrne-esque, “This is not my beautiful wife” style of a suit and buttoned-up white dress shirt sans tie, like we all did 25 years ago? Or is this something for the under-30s? So help us, if bolo ties make a comeback we’re setting something on fire.
Here’s the thing: this kind of highwater hem only really works when the pant leg is tapered. These wide, flapping pant legs look awkward at this hem height. The cuff should break over the top of the shoe in this case. That’s how we see it, anyway.
Get them out of your pockets.
