How to Wear Fitted Straight Cut Pants

It is a trend that can be seen on many men around town. But with many attempts come some hits and misses. Here are some tips on how one should wear this style. Pants are particularly important because they serve as a base for the rest of your outfit. They are also important because they, in a large part, determine whether your body appears tall or short.{{more}} A high rise with a long, straight leg will make you appear taller, while a leg broken up by boot tucks, lower rises, cuffs or other pant breaks will make you appear shorter.

The break is the fold or bend above the cuff of the leg, which is created when the fabric of the leg is longer than your physical leg. Thus the pant line “breaks,” or kinks, near your shin when the cuff meets your shoe. There are different degrees of breaks, as shown in the photos. It really depends on what you prefer; however, no break generally tends to make a man look as if his pants are too short, as it may expose his shoes and socks when walking.
