Just like to share this tip with you in order to make life easier... Learn from Mariette. In April we went to the Sawgrass Mills in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and found these pants for Pieter. (Click on view alphabetically for all stores listed by name). Whenever we buy some real nice pants, like these Italian Ermenegildo Zegna from the Zegna Outlet store, I prepare them right away. In order to make ironing a snap ever after, you do grasp the ankle cuffs of the pants and hold them together right on the seams.
Holding one hand underneath, you can feel if the seams are aligned.
Now you iron the front and back and if they are new, there is not much to iron and aligning them will be rather easy!
With a thread in the matching color you now stitch all along the crease from top till bottom; front and back. That's also rather easy, once it has been properly ironed.
That is stitching almost on the edge...
Barely visible stitching... till almost at the waist area. When worn with a belt the ending of the stitching is not visible at all.
Next time when laundering it is a piece of cake and it is also very convenient when traveling, for folding inside a suitcase. You never can go wrong. With jeans I don't do this but for this type pants it worked perfect.Even Sacha did approve of them... She stands proudly by her Papi with her white socks.
Convenient outfit in all cotton. A kind of tropical style jacket-shirt from Gianni Versace is one of Pieter's favorite for when the weather gets real hot here.
