The main peril is, of course, accidentally looking like a clown.
But there is also this, if you accidentally order your trousers a little too wide. By David Louis Ghilchick, 1925.
|"Perils of the Dance - The terror of the Oxford trousers" - David Louis Ghilchick, Punch, 1925|
But there is a fashion among tangueros for rather wideish trousers, which certainly do look very nice in motion, if you get it right, and especially if you dance well; they drape a little, they flow a little, and the way the toes peep out, in their soft, pleasingly stitched and coloured dancing shoes, is charming. If you overdo it, you can look like a traffic cone. If you are not so young and you really overdo it, you can look like a Vampire. And if you dance badly you just look foolish.
And, this can happen.
But risks are the whole point of difficult garments. Seeking to answer the question "can I carry off this possibly ill-advised style?" correctly is a rather basic part of being a human whose immediate needs are met. It exercises the artistic sense, and teaches modesty and wisdom. Enjoy your trousers. Beauty is always dangerous.
