Don’t Slack on the Slacks


Some guys have the problem of just finding pants that fit, but when dressing professionally, that is only one aspect to keep in check when picking out the right pair of dress pants.



Sizing is a huge component of looking proper in your professional dress attire. Pants too loose and baggy make you look like a slob and gives off a look like you care about what you look like.


Too tight pants can make it extremely uncomfortable for you, and everyone else, to go about your day. Find a nice relaxed pair of pants that fit snug, but you can move around in comfortably to make a day in dress clothes much more bearable.


Next, make sure that the color of the pants match the color of the suit jacket that you are wearing. Although it is preferred to wear one, if you aren’t wearing a jacket, you have a little more flexibility with your pants choice but make sure that the shoes you wear match the pants! I would also take in to account the color of your dress shirt as well. Lighter color shirts go well with darker color pants.

Lastly, BEWARE OF THE PLEATS! Some may enjoy the design of pleats, but the look that it gives off is unflattering to the body. My opinion would suggest to have only one crease down the middle.

Fashion does change year to year, and sometimes faster, so don’t burn up all of those slacks yet. The look could be in again in a new fashion cycle soon. Do you have any problems with pants? Is sizing the issue or matching a problem? Comment your thoughts!
