Slim, Tapered or Relaxed Fit: Choose The Right One for You

The fit you choose for your custom-made clothing makes or breaks your look. Understanding your fit is the most important aspect of tailored clothing, and at The Pant Project, we make this a priority. A well-fitting pair of pants exudes confidence, style and class. In this article, we help you understand the various aspects of our 3 fit-types and how to choose what works best for you. 

We’ve been obsessed with great pants since a long time ago and decided to break down the science of choosing your custom-made pants without any hurdles. The fit of your pants depends entirely on your body type and how roomy you like your pants to be. On offer at The Pant Project are three fits that cover almost every body type: a slim fit that is perfect for the lean, small-waisted man, a tapered fit that helps those that prefer pants that are not too snug, but not too loose around the hip and thighs, and a relaxed fit that caters to the man that loves his pants flowing straight from the waist with an overall roomier fit.

Slim Fit

Slim Fit

Body-hugging and typically for the lean, slender man with a narrow waist. These pants tend to fit snugly overall; the seat, thighs and legs too. 

Tapered Fit

Tapered Fit

When talking about a tapered fit, these pants are roomier at the seat and thigh portion making them a roomier alternative to slim-fits offering a less tight and comfortable fit. We recommend a tapered fit for those that have bigger hips as well as larger thighs for a comfortable yet stylish wear.

Relaxed Fit

Relaxed Fit

The traditional, no-nonsense fit that screams comfort & airiness. Straight from the waist down without any tapers or slimming, your relaxed fit pants are perfect if you prefer to have a roomier wear without any body-hugging or tightness. These also work as a great option if you have a rounder body. 

There is always a mix & match that can be at play here when choosing your pants. Most of us tend to choose our pants according to when and where we choose to wear them (yes, we love our puns and alliteration too!). On some occasions, we like our pants to be snugly fit for a classy look. For example, at the office or for an important meeting or simply on date night when you need to look your best. 

But on some days, like when we’re hanging out with our friends and family, an easier wear is preferred. Tapered fit pants come in here to save your day from body-hugging attire. Move, play and chill out at ease in a tapered fitting pair of pants. And then there are some days when we just want to relax, lounge and let go; voila, relaxed pants save the day. Fitting perfectly at the waist and giving you absolute breathing space while you take a day to yourself, relaxed fitting pants are as essential to your wardrobe as slim-fits and tapered party-wear.
