‘Slackers’

W

Call me crazy, but one of the most ridiculed items of clothing, slacks, may be making a comeback—and they look good. Perhaps, it’s the word that we detest, they are really just trousers…

From the May issue of W.

  • I love them! I have a very nice pair of Piazza Sempione high waisted wide leg slacks that I bought several seasons ago when the trend didn’t catch on!

  • i think it’s the word…just as awful as the word “dungarees” that my father still uses…

  • Ridiculed? I’m confused. What is the difference between slacks and pants? Is it the high waist?

  • I usually ask for a pant or a trouser when I shop or on the telephone (I still use the telephone when I shop rather than online). A shop I visit often refers to pieces as ‘tops, bottoms, dresses, and knits.’ For years, Piazza made the best, most perfectly cut pant on the planet. They were Italian tailoring at its best! I pray they recover and get their focus back. I still have a few of my favorite Piazza pants, but I would give anything for an updated version in a grey wool . . . Lovely post!

  • J’Adore! It all started, so brilliantly, with Coco Chanel. Like other posters, Piazza Sempione’s high waist wide leg slacks have been a wardrobe staple for me. Sadly, only 1 pair left, in navy, and would buy again!
