    I've had pleated slacks for years, however it's been about three years since I last wore a triple pleated slacks...thank goodness with a low sodium and low cholesterol diet they are two inches too big in the waist. Flat fronts for the next 15 plus years?

    I bought a new navy suit today. You guessed pleats and cuffs. No suits  with plain fronts in the shop.

    I renew my request for FJ to produce a pair of pleated golf pants!

    Pleats are awesome, like mom jeans.   I wish all men's jeans and sweat pants had pleats.

    No pleats in my new favorite "pants"...

    If there were pleats on those bad boys, you could be rocking the New York club scene, circa 1975.

    Not a big fan of the Pleats, glad Footjoy is not leaning in that direction anytime soon

    "For men, I love a flat-front pant. I know pleats are still around but I think everyone should burn them (laughs). I like simplicity for guys, I don’t like a lot of patterns, just very neutral and very clean."

    I just switched all of my work dress pants to flat front!  :-)

    I don't see us doing pleats anytime soon, they should stay in the closet.

    Well said Devin. The style of clothes and fashion is cyclical.  Pleats and flat fronts are like the width of ties and lapels, today they're narrow and tomorrow they'll be wider and then it'll go around again. Wear them if you like them or keep 'em in the closet until the style comes around again.
