How Should Men's Dress Pants Fit?


Before you buy another pair of pants that bind, sag, pull or pucker; learn the basics of how to choose a great fitting pair of men’s custom dress pants.

The Rise

The crotch should not bind, nor should it be loose and baggy. Too much fabric and it will look sloppy. Too little and it will cut into your groin area making you very uncomfortable. There should be just enough fabric in the rise to contour your seat while allowing you to sit comfortably.

The Drape

Your dress pants should have form with a graceful drape of the cloth. This means no tightness made apparent by unsightly horizontal lines across the front, back or side of your pants, and no bulges

The Length

The desired length of your pants is predicated upon your personal preference and style sense.

  • No Break

    For the conservative. The bottom of the pants hits the shoe and the mid-heel with no crease or break. Make sure the pants length is not so short that one can see your socks when you walk.

  • Single Break

    This is the most common pants length. The golden rule is for the pants hems to finish with a single break (crease of fabric) at the front of the shoe. In the back, the hem should end where the heel meets the lower back of the shoe.

  • Double Break

    A double break is popular with the young, who like a “drapey” full pants leg and hem with deep folds on the shoe. (Great for hip-hop; bad for business.) Just be careful the pants do not drag on the floor.

How Should the Waist of Traditional Pants Fit?

For a traditional cut, the waist of your dress slacks should be at the natural waistline. A well-fitted waist will be comfortable and allow you to breathe. There should not be any unsightly pulls or puckers at the hips or around the pockets.

How Should the Waist of Low Rise Pants Fit?

Low rise pants are fashionable and popular with the young and those who have the physique to wear them. While not appropriate for a formal business setting, they are stylish and fun for weekend wear. Low rise pants are worn below the waist and are typically a flat front or non pleated style.

Make sure the pants lie flat around the hips and are well fitting in the seat, without binding, bagging or sagging.
