Trousers and jeans. These two essentials are what literally hold a man together. So why do we get them both so wrong so much of the time?
Let us focus on a man’s trousers and the length that he has chosen to go for. We have all been there in the past, trousers dragging along on the floor, trousers with frayed cuffs because they keep getting caught underneath our shoes. The quick fix would be to roll your trousers or jeans up so many times until you feel satisfied. The issue with this is that they will just roll right back down again after a few lengthy strides. The key to this whole problem is understanding how much Break you need when wearing your trousers.
If there is an endless amount of fabric squashed up and sitting on top of your shoes then you have too much break. Examples of this debacle would be the poor 8-year-old boy at church on a Sunday morning. It seems to be a ritual for parents to dress their sons in trousers and blazers that are three sizes too big. The second example of this problem would be the 90% of men in general who fail to make the right choices when it comes to buying a suit or a pair of trousers. It is certainly not easy to get it right but if we learn the fundamentals then the percentage of correct decisions we make becomes far greater.
Too much break in your trousers can cause you to look sloppy. The trousers will look like they are too big for you even if they fit perfectly at the waist and they are seemingly comfortable. On many occasions you can get away with slouchy jeans that look good in this style but be careful when trousers are involved.
Going for a medium break is a safe bet that will avoid a fashion disaster. A medium break represents a classic look that will have you looking and feeling good. Most professionals tend to edge towards the medium break because it is a slightly more conservative style.
No Break trousers on the other hand can be a very stylish and trendy option but there has to be caution when going down this route. There is a very fine line between being stylish and looking not so stylish. Our advice would be to make sure your tailor gets it absolutely right if you are gunning for the no break style. Too much flashing of the chicken ankles might not work so well. The trousers should sit perfectly on top of the shoe, elongating your legs and giving off the illusion of a taller learner figure.
Learning more about these fashion essentials will ensure that your future choices are a lot wiser in regards to choosing your trousers and choosing how much break is needed. A note to all men out there is, If you buy your trousers unhemmed, you have no choice but to take them to a tailor to insure you get them sitting right. Do not take the chance and wear them as they come.
