While out and about today I stopped and had a coffee at a cafe and watched the world go by for a short while - more specifically watched posteriors in pants go by. I tried to be discrete, after all, it is rude to stare, but this was research for my pants project, so I rationalised that so long as I was subtle in my glances, no harm would be done. I did see lots of pants with lots of posteriors that do not quite fit, and posteriors in pants of all shapes and sizes. Some pants would fit rather too well. I am not sure that tight jean cuts are altogether flattering on some people. My earlier pre-tests were certainly not flattering on me but I am optimistic that at least I will not be showing off parts I would rather not have the world see in this style of trouser.
