Beginner’s Guide to Suits: Part XIII

August 20, 2009

Each week, I will present a post on the ins and outs of custom suits AND suits in general. For the complete guide, leave a comment.

Trouser Pleats











Pleats are very traditional and utterly out of style. They are often seen on senior gentlemen out of habit. Pleats are made for men that are larger than normal around the stomach AND as a result wear their trouser at their natural waist (around the belly button).  For a person that is of average build and wears their trousers a little lower (usually around the hip bone), a flat front is generally more attractive and stylish. When pleated trousers are worn at the hip bone it creates the illusion of balloon-sized thighs, and flood-ready cuffs.
