Length of suit pants

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just got a Calvin Klein suit adjusted by the tailor. Just want to get some opinions on the proper length of pants. My pants come down about halfway between the top of my shoe and the sole. Is this too short or about right?

I'm picturing a full break, but obviously could be wrong. Post pics. By the way, I prefer a slight break.

I prefer a full break and hem right above the top of the heel in back.

I like a little leeway because I can pull up the pant at different levels at my waist depending on my mood, how I want to wear dress, and what I ate.

does sound like a slight break, which is totally fine, sometimes they make the front of the trousers just slightly higher b/c of where it will rest on the shoe. I personally like no break, makes for a full showcase of my shoes and sometimes my socks

I used to dislike the no-break look on nice slacks but now I like the look a lot. It needs to be done right though. It's crucial that the slacks and jacket both are are the slim-fitting side (and properly fitted, period) for the look too come off.

Pictures needed to judge I am afraid

Absolutely. I'm noticing lately that guys are sporting higher length trousers but it's not tapered to accommodate the length....and 99% of them are wearing them with squared off shoes
