    How the heck do people walk out the front door wearing pants that low rise with a shirt tucked in. That looks absolutely terrible.

        Imagine thinking high rise, baggy trousers and oversized button shirts look better than these. Women cream themselves when they see a fit dude dressed up like this.

        Clothes are supposed to be roomy and breathable, especially for men, because real men need that ventilation and mobility since they move around a lot and do physical work. Only homosexuals wear tight clothes to seduce other homosexual men into indulging in sodomy.

        The entire reason why clothes started getting tighter, especially after WW1 is because there was a shortage of fabric. So, tight clothes became popular not because of their inherent merit, but due to necessity. The fashion industry took it even further because they could make more profit by cutting their costs from using less fabric, while selling at the same price or more. So, by the 70’s, every man was wearing tight shirts like a gay that looked like women’s blouse.

      It’s not weird, just a basic formal fit. Would work for anyone over 18, really. Sure if you live in a place of poverty, people will think it’s a smart fit. It’s not fedora tier at all. And most pajeet fits look bad because, well, a pajeet is in them.

      Avoid the monk-strap shoes of pic 1 though, they are, in my opinion, way too formal and harder to make look good, and because they are more rare to see, they look odd to a lot of people. Stick with 2.

      Low rise look pretty awful to me, high rise on the actual waist is best. Low rise can work if you have long legs and a short torso though. Short legs and long torso, they give you munchkin legs. High rise balance it perfectly.

      monk strap shoes might be questionable but the rest is fine.

      Yah.

        Medium rise is easy. Just classic fit dockers, ll bean, dickies 874 are all affordable. High rise trousers and dress pants are to be found at higher end brands. Like castalantic or go to a fancy department store or niche brand. Same with jeans. Although wrangler has some higher rise and levis has 551z, loose fit jeans (that’s the name of the jean) and the 501 93 are higher.

    Nothing wrong with wearing a button up shirt tucked into chinos but I’m almost impressed at how much they’ve managed to heck up with such a simple combo. First of all those clothes just look like shit, they’re probably polyester dogshit. Second, the rise on those pants is stupid, you need something higher. Idk why the heck he’s wearing slim fit pants with that build.

      Would you explaining in more detail what you mean by this. I have no fashion sense and want to learn more.

        Rise is just the distance from the crotch of the pants to the top of the pants. Front rise is measured along the front, and you’ll never guess where rear rise is measured. Modern mid-rise will generally sit between the hip bones and the top of the hips; this can generally be comfortable but isn’t my preference. Now, higher-rise pants, like the classic fit Dockers in picrel, generally rest up on the top of the hips, around the natural waist; this is more comfortable for me assuming a good fit, and most brands’ "classic" or "traditional" cuts also have a lot more room in the "top block" and the thighs, and will have a less aggressive taper down to the ankles.

        Note where OP’s photo shows fabric bunching up around the crotch of the pants even while standing, that’s a sign of a too-slim cut. There are also creases showing up along the thighs, and it’s even tight around the calves, plus fabric bunching up at the knee because the pants are too tight to drape naturally. This is enabled by cheap stretch fabrics, but it will stretch out and distort over time.

          Thank you anon this is very helpful.
          >aggressive taper down to the ankles.
          Is this part and parcel with slim cut pants? Does slim cut typicall refer to how much room, width-wise, pant legs have? Because when I think of skinny-jeans I think of jeans that are really form fitting particularly around the legs. As far as fashion goes are there any general rules regarding the different rises in pants? Since you said High Rise are also sometimes called classic fit I’m assuming they are considered the norm. Are low or mid-rise pants considered trend chasing? If I buy pants I want to be able to wear them 5 or 6 years later still and not be viewed as dated or gauche. Thanks again anon.

            To me tight low rise pants, especially like in the OP, are what I see douchey Eastern Europeans wear. Just looks bad and what a young guy that doesn’t actually know how to dress would wear.

            A classic cut is more roomy, you can have a high rise pant with a slimmer cut that still looks good, just as long as it isn’t too tight. You want the pants to still drape naturally and not bunch up. Another sign that the pants are too tight are the pockets. See how they flare out, especially on the green pants? They should be flat.

            If you want to see a great example of modern, slimmer fitting pants that are high rise, check out Scavini and their S3, S4, and Gurkha pants.

            Most pants are somewhat tapered since your legs are naturally larger at the thighs than the ankles. But you can get completely straight pants. Or you can get fuller-cut pants that still have a taper. I think a taper is always flattering since it prevents you from looking too boxy. Unless youre going for a stylish gen Z baggy pants look i guess.

            So if something is described as say a boot cut does that mean there is less tapering than usual since the bottom of the leg is tailored to go over a boot?

            Buy dockers straight cut. They’re slimish and will look fine 20 years ago or 20 years from now. The ‘classic’ cuts (for most brands) are the looser ones, but they look much baggier to yourself than to others looking at you. About 50 bucks a pair. All of their 360flex feel like a mix between slacks and pajamas 10/10 recommend

            seconding the dockers rec.
            the only thing bad about them is the material is kind of cheap feeling and has that polyester sheen to it. similar fitting pants in nicer material usually run you like $80-150 but i think dockers are the way to go until you know exactly what you want.

          • Anonymous says:

            They have a bit of a canvas feel to them, would definitely feel cheeper if you’re used to high dollar stuff. The ones I have are just cotton and elastic. Navy blues have a hint of sheen but the khaki/grey don’t. Abrasion resistance isn’t great but if I’m doing actual work I shouldn’t be in creased dockers kek. Oh their lengths are hecked though. 30" inseam is an inch too short, fine I’ll try 32. I roll the cuff inside 3" and it’s still fits 2+ longer than 30 lmao

            not that anon but you received some incorrect/bad answers:
            >aggressive taper down to the ankles.
            >Is this part and parcel with slim cut pants?
            slim cut referrs to the over-all leg being slim.
            taper is a separate thing.
            you can have slim cut pants with zero taper, and you can have baggy pants with a strong taper and any combination you can think of.
            many people use the terminology wrong as a blanket term for tapered pants, though.

            >As far as fashion goes are there any general rules regarding the different rises in pants?
            yes. rule of thirds.
            take a picture of yourself and open it up in gimp and count the pixels.
            zoomers will tell you that high rise is always better. a case of the blind leading the blind, knee jerk reacting to the mistakes millenials made. the correct answer is there is no best rise, it depends on your leg length to torso length ratio. for MOST GUYS this will be either high rise or mid rise. low rise looks good on few men, mostly only africans with really long legs and short torsos.

            >If I buy pants I want to be able to wear them 5 or 6 years later still and not be viewed as dated or gauche.
            traditional cut is a trend but it is also timeless so i would not worry about that as long as you pull the look off it will always be relevant.

            Good thing I (not OP) always wore looser clothes. Never liked the slim fit trend. What kind of a man willingly crushes his own balls and wears shirts that look like women’s blouse? No man. So, what might have seemed "sloppy" in the 2010’s to millennial gays, suddenly makes me look trendy now.

            https://i.imgur.com/eeX76z4.jpg

            Good. I saved my seed produced by my well-ventilated and freely moving balls from being wasted on millennial roasties.

            ball crushing is caused by the upper block tapering in too much, not the rise. this levi’s by year chart can be used as a visual example. if the area around the front pockets is too tight they will crush your balls. a lot of 2010 era jeans have this issue especially western brands. i have plenty of low rises that are v roomy and i have plenty of high and mid rise’s that crush my sack. high rise only helps alleviate it because you can sag them more, but at that point you’re not wearing your pants properly.

            Thanks for the help anon. Let me give an example to see if I got your advice correctly. Someone like Michael Phelps, who seems to have a fairly long torso and relative to that shorter legs, would want to wear a higher rise pant so that they go up roughly 2/3rds of his body so around his belly button. This would mean his shirt would start there and cover like the the top 1/3rd of his body, and if he wore a jacket over that he would want that to go down farther so it covered like the top 2/3rds of his body? Also when dividing up in thirds what are the measuring points? Bottom of the soles of the feet to top of the head, or maybe ankles to shoulders? Thanks again for the help anon.

            If you have short legs then high rise will be better, to give you that 1/3+2/3 proportion of torso and legs.

      • Anonymous says:

        The other anon explained it well, I prefer high rise because it cuts your body into thirds more than when you wear low rise and it tends to cut it in half. The proportions look better in thirds, you can tuck in your shirt to your pants and then wear a slightly longer coat and you get nice distinct layers.

          So you have the pants waist up above the hips, but then the coast hangs to like mid-butt or upper thigh?

            Yeah, or a long coat that reaches down around your knees. Try it yourself, do a shirt/pant/coat outfit tucked and untucked and see what you think. With most button up shirts the bib will be around the same length as a short coat so your layers will kind of smear together.

    You will probably look a fair bit more formal than the people around you. It looks fine, but consider if it’s appropriate for your situation as well. Like if you are standing out in a bad way, or it might be too uncomfortable or prone to getting dirty. Keep in mind that people do choose their clothes in general for a reason, and that drastically changing it up for the sake of change may not lead to a satisfying result.

    also straight, slim, tapered, etc all these terms refer to how the leg is shaped they have little to no bearing on the upper block fit and if your balls get crushed or not.

      Because slim fit have to be slim everywhere above the knees to "complete" the look. Or else they’ll look like you’re wearing a diaper inside. Tapered, like the name says, are baggy near the ass and crotch area and keep tapering as you go down.

    Do less formal for everyday. Maybe a flannel, untucked and sneakers instead. Maybe a linen shirt in the summer. Keep the dress shoes for a formal occasion. Chinos work for everything though (green color maybe less so, but grey and navy should do well).
