For example, a drop 4 which would be a huskier cut is not just a pant of a size 36 which otherwise would be matched to a 40 jacket but in reality a pant that is proportionately cut to someone that would take a 40 jacket and a 36 pant
The less the drop, the more the wearer has collected around the middle. The jacket, as well as the trousers, has to fit around the girth. The lesser the drop in a coat the more material is in the forepart of the jacket (the back remains virtually the same) to provide space for an ample belly and still enable the jacket to be closed. Most big guys you see in the streets these days, cannot close the coat and cannot get the waistband Â of the trousers over their tummy.
which would be wider waste and with a shorter crotch. Â This would mean that in fact there is a pant that by itself is a drop 4 cut and similarly a drop 4 jacket (wider jacket and shorter length)
Actually, the bigger the waist, the longer the rise. The tummy should always be covered and not for all the world on display.
