Trouser lengths

Trouser lengths

The break in a pair of dress pants (or jeans or chinos, for that matter) is the fold or creasing of the fabric above the bottom of the front of the pant leg where it meets your shoe.

Here are four of the most common pant breaks and hemlines you’re likely to see as well as some guidance on choosing what pant length is right for you.

1. No Break

2. Slight Break

3. Medium Break

This is an ideal look for those with a more conservative style, who don’t want a tapered or slim trouser and want to go with a cuff.

4. Full Break
