Men's Pant Fit Options | Standard, Relaxed, Straight, Slimmer Tailored

This video presents a crash course on pant fit. Aaron Marino of alpha m. states that four fits are essential to know, and skipping the first two is advised.

Focus on the straight and slimmer tailored fits

  1. The standard fit has a standard / regular rise which doesn't elongate your legs. The regular rise is around 12 inches long. The pant leg is a little wider, creating a bit baggier of a pant.
  2. The relaxed fit is baggy with a regular rise and a wide pant leg.
  3. The sexier version is the straight fit with a mid-rise with a more narrow pant leg.
  4. A slimmer tailored fit is even more narrow with a low to mid rise.
