Pants fit guide part 4

How pants should fit, number 4:

The rise, whether it is low, mid or high, should suit your comfort standards and stay in place when you move. If the fit is uncomfortable and your pleats gap it is too tight and if the pants tent excessively or fold over in places the rise is too big.

How pants should fit, number 5:

The cut should flatter your waist, thighs, and calves, all the way down to the ankle. Assess how the fabric drapes due to the cut. If the fabric clings awkwardly to the knee, seat, or calves, and forms wrinkles or creases, you need a bigger fit. If the material bags or folds around the seat or upper thighs it is too big. The width of the pant leg is so wide that it makes you appear out of proportion, and it covers a large portion of your shoes.

How pants should fit, number 6:

Pants length is a matter of preference within boundaries. Most older men wear their pants too long, most young men too short. The classic look ranges from no break in front and back to a slight break in the front. If it is too short, the entire ankle is exposed, but if your pants have a break in the back, they are too long.

Common pants fit issues, number 1:

If you have wrinkles in the seat area, your pants are too tight in the seat. You should have the seat seam opened up if you have enough fabric reserve. Interestingly, when you stand you will not notice any issues, however, when you sit, you end up with bunching rolls of fabric in the fly area and lap. Even a perfectly fitting pair of trousers will show some wrinkles when you sit, that cannot be avoided.
