quote:Theres a strong case to be made that it's the other way around. Flat front is more casual, pleated more formal. Standard set up for a bespoke suit is generally pleated pants not flat front; forward pleats from the Brits, reverse for the Italians. Flat front have become omnipresent in the last fifteen years or so, but they have traditionally been more casual.
