Are my pants baggy or too short? (Photo included)

Hi, first post here. But have been reading the forums for a week and I've enjoyed learning about how to dress properly. I've just graduated and work requires me to dress formal, so it's been helpful.

But I have several doubts, and one that specially bugs me is if my pants length and size are the proper one. Looking at the photo they look OK, but when walking, my socks show up quite a bit.

And also, is it me or are the pants a little baggy?

And one last question. Is it okay to wear loafers with this pants?


Thanks.

Sorry, I'll try and rotate it. In my computer it appears in the correct orientation.

Sorry, son but they are too baggy and too LONG. Are they of such quality that they are worth tailoring? I realize you are probably on a bit of a budget, but do try for slimmer fitting pants (flat-fronted)with just a hint of a break.

Wasn't expecting hearing they were too long.
Any shorter and the socks would be showing a lot when walking. I'll try and use some pins to simulate how it would look.

As for them being baggy, my problem is that slimmer pants don't fit me in the upper part (waist). And this pants aren't worth tailoring them that much. Do they look baggy all the legs length? Or at the upper part?

Thanks for the help. And sorry for my english.

What? They aren't long. In the photo the break is very nice. Not sure about them being baggy, it's hard to see from the photo.

Not everyone is a no-break funsock rocker. The length appear quite acceptable to me. It does appear baggy though. Proper full body photo needed.

It would also help just to verify that you're wearing the slacks at your natural waist. They almost look like they're slipping down in the back.

I'll try and upload a better photo when arriving home. This was taken with my phone.

Interesting point. I've always had trouble keeping pants to stay up.

+1. They look too baggy and too long but looking at the photo it appears you don't have your pants pulled up, grasshopper.

I think braces might do a better job of holding pants up - and more convenient too.

Pictures can be pretty misleading with trouser length. If you want to make a pretty picture, you need to hem them pretty short -- short enough to be conspicuous in most parts of the world. When all the fit is perfect, the no break trouser is going to look a lot better than the no break trouser that has the usual RTW fit issues.

For example, all that fabric in the back of your leg suggests the trousers are cut for a man with a bigger ass than you now have. Eat up
