Pants for the Big Guy: “To Pleat or Not to Pleat”

Pleated Pants vs Flat Front Pants

Pants: To Pleat or Not to Pleat, That is the Question

         I can not count the numerous amount of articles I have read that discourage wearing pleated pants. Most of the time when this conversation is discussed, big & tall men are not taken into consideration. I think its time that a big & tall man gave his input on this subject.

For the majority of my life I have been “the big guy” and have worn pleated pants. I see and hear fashion shows dismissing pleats all the time. When I hear their opinions on it, I always wonder if they will ever look at more than just the slimmer men when discussing this topic. They most likely will not. The fact is, there is nothing wrong with pleated pants.  As larger men, we often find it hard to be comfortable in our own skin. If we can not be comfortable in our own skin, let’s at least be comfortable in our pants.

Pleats allows for us to have the extra room in our legs. When you are a larger man and you have a little extra “junk in the trunk,” flat fronts can look funny on you and be uncomfortable. We have all seen the big guy that has on the flat front pants and his pockets are sticking out to the side because he should not be wearing them. He walks carefully because he knows the wrong move could cause his pants to split down the middle. There are some flat front pants that come with the extended waist that allow  a little more wiggle room for the big guys. If you happen to find a pair of these, make sure you try them on first. These are not for everyone.

You will not find many fashion experts that are advocates for pleats. However you will find that most of these experts do not live the big & tall lifestyle.
