Fashion isn’t just about 12-foot tall glamazons catwalking down the runway in weird-ass costumes. It’s about everyday people presenting themselves to the world using clothes. And while style is about individual expression, your pant length might be expressing itself differently than what you intended. We’ve listed a few lengths of pants below and give tips on how to best avoid looking like an idiot.
"Oh boy, Tom's trying to pull off that cool guy look again."
"I think I just saw Henry trip on his pants in the break room."
I hate to break it to you, but wearing too long of pants does not make you appear taller or bulkier. It makes you look like you had 30 seconds at the Big & Tall, blindfolded. If the fabric on your pants is folding over, then consider getting those bad boys hemmed. Get a grip, Henry.
"Wow, John, who's your tailor?"
Well-fitted pants that just perfectly graze the top of your shoe – that's where it's at. If you're wearing jeans, rolling them to the perfect length is a great, stylish way to ensure the right length. For all other types of pants, find a tailor.
