My stepson just started a new job that requires him to wear decent business casual attire, including dress slacks. He has a copious supply of dress slacks, nearly all the result of my generosity in previous years. Unfortunately, the vast majority of them are pleated. He is now refusing to wear pleated slacks, claiming they are "out" and unfashionable. I think he got this from one of his pals whom I hold in low esteem. I view pleated pants as classic and timeless, but then I'm an old man. However, from what I have read recently, pleated pants are staging a big comeback and are losing the stigma of being outdated and fuddy-duddy-ish. Anyway, I'd appreciate any comments forum members may have on this topic. Am I right or is he?
