I am new to this forum and pretty much new to suits - I have probably worn a suit to an event maybe 10 times in my life (and I'm 40) and each time the suit sucked, to put it mildly. My friend's wedding is coming up and I'd like to get a real suit. I was browsing at the mall and came across Theory and I really like it. My question is this: what is it about the bottom leg of most suit pants that make it have so much room down there that it goes back and forth like a bell when you walk? When I tried on a Theory pant it was more fitted to my leg. I understand that, in general, a more expensive suit will have a better "fit" but I don't get that bottom leg part - why do the cheaper ones have all that extra fabric? Wouldn't it save fabric to have a smaller diameter at the ankle? I don't get it....
