Traditional cut or slim cut, high rise or low rise, cuffs or no cuffs, pleated or flat front? It's so confusing! Too many choices? Actually, no!

Men come in all different shapes and sizes. Some are short, some tall. Some are skinny, some hefty. The list goes on and on. So, having a selection of different cuts and styles in our dress pants is a good thing. Trying to figure out which is right for you? Now, that's daunting! But, let me help.

Short Flat front pants are more becoming than pleated pants on a man of your stature as they are less bulky and there is less fullness in the legs. Because of your shorter height, you need to purchase a pair of pants with a short or low rise with no cuffs. You should choose a trim cut pant with a shorter inseam.

Short and Thin Flat front pants are more becoming than pleated pants on a man of your stature as they are less bulky and there is less fullness from the thigh to the ankle. Short rise or low rise pants are best for you. You should choose a trim cut pant with a shorter inseam.

Short and Heavy Choose pants that are flat front, full cut and low rise. It is difficult to find off-the-rack pants that will fit you, so you will most likely require alterations or custom pants to fit your needs.

Tall Because of your height, you can wear any style pants, including regular cut, boot cut, flat front or pleated pants. You can wear cuffs or no cuffs. You need to purchase a pair of pants with a long rise. You should also choose pants with a longer inseam.

Tall and Thin Because of your height, you will look best in a trim cut or boot cut style. You can also wear various styles like flat front or pleated pants with or without cuffs. Because you are thin, regular rise pants should work for you. You need to purchase a pair of pants with a longer leg length.

Big and Tall If you have a full abdomen, we suggest flat front pants with a long rise, in a full cut. If you have a flatter stomach, then you can wear flat front or pleated pants. Either way, you will need a long rise. You also need to purchase pants with a long leg length.

Big Stomach If you have a big belly, then it is difficult to keep your pants from sliding down. For this reason, we suggest a flat front, traditional cut style pants rather than a pleated pants style. You may choose to buy larger size pants to fit your waist, but then the seat will be too big, or you may buy a smaller size in order to fit the seat, but then the waist will be too small.

Big Stomach, Flat Seat, Thin Thighs If you have a big belly, it is difficult to keep your pants from sliding down. Because of your flatter rear and thin thighs, you get too much fabric in the seat and thighs. For this reason, we suggest a flat front style pants that are trim cut, rather than pleated pants, as pleated pants exaggerate this problem by adding too much fabric to the seat and thigh area.

Long Torso/Short Legs You may need a long rise with a shorter pants inseam. If you are short, traditional cut pants with flat front are the best option. Tall men can wear pleated pants or a flat front.
