Pleat or not to Pleat?

Pleated Trousers – A Resurging Trend?
To pleat or not to pleat? That is the sartorial question.
Despite the everyday male’s natural aversion to pleated trousers and the continued preference of straight, slim-cut, flat-fronted styles by the industry as a whole, it seems that pleats are back with a vengeance.
