Dress pants and chinos fitting guide for Men
Dress pants deserve a big place in men’s clothing. Pants are more important because it plays a large part in the appearance of your body.
The pants can make you look tall or short. If you wear a high rise with a long (straight leg) it will make you look taller and if you wear cuffs or low rise it will make you look shorter.
Pant break is an important part to know about and we will discuss here before we go into how pants should fit.
The break is actually a bend or fold above the cuff of your leg, which happens when the length of the pants is little longer than your actual leg size.
When the dress pants make a deep crease that means its full break. In full break the level of fabric is much excess that it may create another break.
A medium break or half break is between the two conditions which discuss above. In medium break the length of the pants is not excessive, but still has much to take a noticeable bend.
In slight break or quarter break, your pant breaks when it meets your shoes.
Suit Pants and Dress pants
These should sit at the top of your hip bones, directly below your navel. Dress pants will fit more conservatively than other pants, which is to say that you should not be able to see the contours of your butt.
The proper position of your dress pants or suit pants is at the start of your hip bones and underneath the navel. The pants will be in proper fit when you will be able to see the outline of your hips.
The pants should not be tight enough to cut into your waist. The selection of pants break is entirely up to you, some people like full break or some like no break but majority go for a medium break.
Chinos or Corduroys
If you have to wear chinos for business purposes, you should select the fit same as dress pants. But if you have to wear chinos for the casual wear they should be slim fit chinos. It will give you a proper sharp look with casual shirts and T-shirts.
The break of the dress chinos should be medium and that’s what most people prefer. In dress chinos a full break looks awful, but if slim fit or casual chinos have multiple breaks or full break it will look appropriate. Avoid pleats, it is strictly not recommended on chinos.
