I’ve been a denim guy for as long as I can remember. However, lately I’ve been incorporating more chinos and dress pants into my everyday wear. Wearing trousers in place of jeans adds an understated elegance to any outfit. Due to my athletic physique, I’ve always had a difficult time sizing denim and pants. I prefer slim or skinny fit with a tapered leg opening. Sometimes I’ll size up and then get the waist altered—other times I’ll buy slim (not skinny) fit and tapper the legs myself.
When wearing denim or casual chinos I typically cuff the leg opening once or twice. I will buy an appropriate length to accommodate for this. When wearing dress pants I prefer a slightly cropped trouser that hits right above the shoe line. This only works with a very narrow leg opening.
