No question.


Higher rises are only for jacket combos, and need at least one pleat.  I agree a more modest rise is better for casual trousers i.e. no jacket.  But unless they're jeans i.e. no crease in the front, I think a single pleat accentuates the vertical line of the crease and always looks good, without that blousiness a double pleat can cause.  But if you're low-slung, skinny and hip, then I am sure flat works for some.  :)

due to my wider hips, even on higher rise pants, my pleats never stay closed. i gave up on pleats, they just look bad on me imo.

Did you have them cut for braces so that they're loose at the waist? This is the only way mine stay closed. With a belt it's impossible.
post #3785 of 37293
i did not. but i cant handle loose at the waist. i feel my shirt and stuff coming loose and it drives me nuts. i have sensory issues (along with many others).
post #3786 of 37293
Shirt shouldn't come loose if it fits, it just kind of falls back down if it ever comes up rather than being trapped above a belt. I have fewer untucking issues when I wear braces.

SUP @Murlsquirl! thanks again!

i think i do need a little waist suppression in this birdseye. feels too full in the gut.

It's hard to tell by the way you're standing but It looks great the way it is. I'm more of a fan of a gentle curve in the sides than a more hourglass English type job.
