    Hi, got this pants to match the suit off the racks. Says its skinny cut though. It does fit my thighs and legs perfectly but It is kinda tight around the waist. If I go for a size larger my pants would be very baggy. For me its sort of uncomfortable when I sit. Is it possible if I were to bring it to a tailor for some adjustments around the waist/ buttocks region? Thanks!

    Too tight. I am skeptical that going a size larger would make them very baggy. However, if there is extra fabric inside the waistband and seat, that area can be let out. But that won't address the way they emphasize your upper hips. You would benefit from less taper.

    hey, any tailor should be able to let out the pants an inch or so. Also, something else to consider, when buying pants I usually go for a perfect fit in the crotch, waist, and butt. I always get my pants tailored down the leg which doesnt cost a whole lot. I have my tailor take in from both sides of the pant leg, and at the bottom I like to have a 6 1/4" to 6 1/2" opening. I can take a $20 pair of pants with great material, spend $10 dollars at the tailors, and have a pant that fits me perfect with a gucci/ tom ford style. Food for thought.

    I would go one size larger and have a tailor take care of it.

    The trim leg is not flattering and makes your seat look huge. Wrong style for a suit trouser IMO.

    Wisdom as ever - the jacket is far too short as well.

    Definitely reconsider the Damier belt.

    The pants are unflattering. I recommend sizing up. If it is uncomfortable to sit down, that's a good sign your pants are too tight.

    The belt is especially egregious. It screams of a certain desperation. What's wrong with a quality belt in a black or brown calf? It may not be LV Damier, but it also won't make you look like you're trying so hard.

    It seems that we are trying to take you way from what you are comfortable with. I am sorry for that, but we have some reasons for that.
    I my opinion the "skinniest" that you can go with dress trousers is shown by the igent, with a hat, in the photograph bellow.
    And it does not come without a cost, because, if you have a big feet, such as the aforementioned igent, the strong tapering will only visually lengthen it. Also the trousers will be slightly cropped.

    the opening makes it seem way too tight man...way to tapered at the bottom open it up an inch and everything will be fine if everything is comfortable? The first two pics they look good, but at the bottom way too tapered it makes it look like 'skinny ' tight jeans kids wear these days.

    I think I will bring it back for an exchange the size 32 for a size 34 and then work my way from there, sounds good?


    The suit is supposed to be somewhat shorter, its a skinny cut lol. Those you see on hipsters or sort. The suit jacket was a great bargain so I just had to get it, around 60USD if my conversion skill serves me right. :)

    Btw, is it easy to spot a washed dress pants by a storekeeper? Dont think they'll accept the return if its already washed. Thanks!
