Guide on how a suit should fit part 6

A suit means it is a matching garment of jacket and pants made of the same cloth. You can add a vest if you want and if you do add a vest, it is called a three-piece suit, and if not it is a two-piece suit. A suit can be double-breasted or single-breasted.

How pants from a suit should fit:

They should never be too tight or baggy. They must have the proper inseam length which means a slight break or no break. Pants must have the right circumference around your waist, thigh, knee, and ankle. You always want clean lines and no wrinkles although it is very difficult to achieve, your pleats should never gap and a higher rise trouser is much more flattering and comfortable to wear especially with the suit. If you are either not in perfect shape, or your clothes are not tailored, you probably will need either a belt or suspenders. Suspenders are better for suits because they are more comfortable unless you mind that weight in your shoulders, otherwise, they will keep your pants at the same height all day long versus with a belt, your pants will slide down a little. Now that you know all the important aspects of how a suit should fit, it is important to keep in mind that a heavier fabric drapes always better than a similar cut or the same kind of a suit in a thinner fabric. It is just the added weight shows wrinkles less and it hides more tailoring flaws or flaws of your body versus a very thin fabric. It highlights every issue there is in your body and the tailoring. If you really want to test the tailor and see how good they are, go with a very lightweight thin fabric.
