Selecting the appropriate men’s trousers in the right fabric and pattern for your body shape is essential for presenting the best look, whether you have a rectangular, inverted triangle, or round body shape.  Kirbys Mens Wear’s current designs cover an extraordinary range of styles which include relaxed, regular, slim, and straight fits, among others, but there are a few basic principles to keep in mind when making your selection.

  • Single- or double-pleated slacks work best for men who have heavier thighs and carry weight lower on their frames.  The flat-front, or plain front, flatters men with slighter builds.
  • Cuffs are good looking on taller, lankier frames, but also improve the looks of pleated trousers because the extra fabric weight pulls the pleats into place.  Pants without cuffs help lengthen the look for shorter men.
  • Pant leg types are just as important a decision.  Slim-fit pants are designed for average-to-thinner men, while wide-legged pants help balance a heavier man’s appearance.

Fabric plays a significant role in style selection, as well.  Wool trousers, because they can range from light to heavy weight, are ideal for all seasons. The wools our world-renowned designers use are from Italy’s finest mills and can be woven into such high-performance fabrics as gabardines, twills, failles, and tropical weights. These provide a special durability for withstanding the rigors of travel and long-term wear, as well as exceptional adaptability to multiple uses. Consider a lining, as well, in your dress trousers to help maintain the construction of the pants.

You’ll be able to choose the perfect trousers in the perfect fabric for you from many current silhouettes, models, fabrics, colors and patterns by such manufacturers as:

  • Zanella
  • Canali
  • Corneliani
