Menswear Monday: 4 Must-Have Pants for Winter

Great-fitting trousers and jeans are an essential addition to any man’s wardrobe, particularly in the fall & winter. Just as you lighten up your fabric assortment for the spring/summer season, it's time to grab the heavier fabrics for the cold-weather months. Think tweed trouser, corduroys, cotton twill chinos and selvedge denim—more substantial fabrics that look and fit fantastic.

What is also great about these, besides keeping you warm, is that they fit with all of the other items we're suggesting you invest into. Not to mention, when this season passes and spring/summer comes back around, you can store these up and wear them again for cold-weather months to come! That’s the advantage of investing in timeless wardrobe pieces—longevity that goes beyond fly-by-night trends.

All in all, this is a great time of year to get creative with your personal style. Step out of your norm and try new layering and mix-and-match techniques. You may just find yourself liking it!

How to Fit Pants for Men

A well-fitted pair of men's pants is a thing of beauty and a joy forever. However, a badly-fitted pair, however, can drag a man's look down regardless of any sophistication and fashion he's managed to achieve with the rest of his outfit. Two basic measurements must be made correctly for a pair of men's pants to fit well--the waist and the inseam. Get these two right, observe a few other essential fitting tips, and any man can look like a prince.

Step 1
Use a tape measure to find the pants waist measurement. Wrap the tape measure around the waist at the level of the belly button for traditionally-fitting pants. For low-rise pants, choose a measuring site around the hips. Record the measurement in inches.

Step 2
Measure the pants inseam by having a helper use a tape measure to determine the length, in inches, from where you'd like the bottom edge of the hem of the pants to be to where the crotch begins. The measurements should be generous, since longer pants are preferable to too short.

Step 3
Find pants with your waist x inseam measurement and try them on. Check the break of the pants--the number of times the fabric of the leg creases before reaching the shoe. For professional and business pants, one or no break is standard. If there is more than one break, the pants are too long.

Step 4
Determine if the pants are a good fit by walking around and sittting down in them. If they are too tight, too baggy, bunch up unduly in the crotch area, show your socks while you are standing, or feel uncomfortable in any way, look for another pair or remeasure and try out a different size.
