Choosing the right fit

In the world of men’s pants, there’s a fit for every body type and every occasion. In general, men’s bottoms come in one of these three fits:

  • Slim fit – Perfect for guys who want a tailored, modern look, slim fit pants are narrow through the hip and thigh, creating a sleek silhouette that works well for slimmer builds.

  • Regular fit – A versatile option that suits most body types, regular fit pants deliver a balanced, classic look with a bit more room to move.

  • Relaxed fit – If you’re looking for a roomier feel, relaxed fit pants are the way to go. They provide extra space in the hip and thigh area, making them ideal for guys with a more muscular build—or anyone who wants a comfortable, laid-back style.

Be sure to read the tag/description so you know what you’re getting. Pick the fit that works best for your frame and feels good on your body.
