Angie pointed out that my high boots are too big around the calf - not once, but twice (in different years!). I haven’t found suitable replacements. Can’t say I’ve tried too hard, because I don’t actually wear high boots very much - maybe 3-5 times a year? Anyway, playing in my closet, and some attempts at baggy pants and tall boots! I used pants that are fluid and ‘soft’ vs stiff.

#1-2 these are my baggiest trousers at 11 in. across at the knee. Boots too high for artistic draping? This is very much how I wore pants in the late ‘70’s walking to school In the winter (3 feet of snow and up hill both ways! LOL!).

#3 these are my next loosest bottoms. They measure 8.5 in. across the knee. Looks streamlined and not so baggy.

#4 is what I actually wore/am wearing

Comments, advice welcomed. I wouldn’t mind a little swashbuckle in my closet!
