Gentlemen, Your Pants Are Too Cropped

WHEN I WORE an ankle-baring suit to the office, a colleague joked, “It looks like you’re wearing your little brother’s suit.”

I tried to laugh it off but to be honest, I was already self-conscious about strolling the cubicles in cropped pants in such a conservative midtown-Manhattan workplace. Although I didn’t get around to trying the trend until 2013, it can be traced back to New York designer Thom Browne’s signature look—shrunken suit jacket and highwater pants—which he introduced in 2001.
