White jeans are a summer staple. They are that same comfortable fabric that we know and love in a light summer color. For some, they might be a little intimidating, so learn how to wear them right!
Having your pants fit correctly is important! I’ve covered how they should fit in Fit Is Everything – Part 2 (The Pants). After doing the How To Tailor A Shirt article and video, I’ve had a lot of requests for a tutorial on how to tailor pants, so this week we’re going to learn how to hem dress pants.
It can be easy to throw on a pair of jeans, but it can get boring after a while. You should mix it up! Jeans are easy, but they shouldn’t be the only thing you wear.
There are staples in every man’s wardrobe that you should own. I’m going to lay out 10 categories with suggestions in each that you should own to Up Your Fashion Game. These are the essentials and then should be built up from there. I haven’t covered some of these pieces yet, but I plan to in future posts. So, if you aren’t sure what you should be looking for, either ask down in the comments, or check back later on. I either have or will cover everything on this list in more detail at some point.

In Fit Is Everything – Part 1 (The Shirt), I showed you how your shirt should fit. This week we are moving on to how your pants should fit. First, I will start with some terminology.
Break: The break in your pant leg is the fold in the fabric at the bottom of the leg caused by the pant hitting your shoe. A full break means that the pants cover most of the top of your shoe and the back of the pant leg is on the back of the sole of the shoe, causing a large fold in the fabric. A half break will cover part of the laces and slope back to the midpoint of your heel. This will cause a smaller fold. No break is what it sounds like. There is no break in the front of the pants. This is because the fabric barely or doesn’t touch the shoe at all.
