His Style Matters: Foundation – Pants

Here’s where the pant meets the man. Even though we all wish we had the physique of a professional athlete, most of us fall short. But that shouldn’t stop you from looking good—even great. Know what fits you well and complements your body type. Wearing shapeless, baggy pants doesn’t do anyone any favors, including you. It’s the difference between being seen as a guy who’s got it together instead of a guy that doesn’t.

For a dressier look, go pleated. They’re worn higher up on the waist than plain-front pants with the pleats helping the fabric to fall more naturally. To wear them correctly, you need to have them higher up than you might think.

For a slicker, more modern look, put on plain-fronts. In recent years, plain-fronts have come to dominate most wardrobes because of their versatility. They’re worn lower than pleated pants, at the hips, and can be dressed up or down.

So, in the end, choosing between pleated and plain-fronts comes down to a combination of personal style and body type.

Wide Leg vs. European/Slim 

Wide Leg Trousers Give a Relaxed Look to a Suit. Based on an original pattern from the early 1940s, these trousers are made in the American style with a flat front (no pleats), back darts, a belt with loops that sits at natural waist not on your hips like modern dress pants.

Men are taking a more individualistic and personal approach to dressing. They are mixing dressy with casual, resulting in an eclectic look that suits their personality.

The slim suits feature a tapered waist, slim and slightly tapered legs and a narrower point-to-point shoulder measurement. If you have muscular arms, defined legs or a wide waist, a dress suit cut in a slim fit may not work best for you.

Dressing reflects a man’s confidence, professionalism also his sense of style. Pants play a major role and classic pants are certainly a must. However it is necessary to look out for the pant rise, taller men need longer pant rise and vice versa. There are various styles and cuts to choose from and there are lots of trousers that suits a modern man nevertheless it is fundamental that you get to choose the best one that matches your character and lifestyle.

Always remember, STYLE MATTERS!
