There are five types of pants. The standard one, all the way on the left, is a common pant worn by males and females. The pant is pretty straight. The second, is a boot-cut pant which is a little wide at the bottom to allow for boots. The third is tapered pants that is also non-gender specific. The ends of the pant becomes smaller, following the line of the leg. Fourth, is the bell-bottom pants that has recently become fashionable once again. The last pant, takes the bell-bottom further – called a flared pant.
Pants are cut in different ways. Here are three common forms. The first is a classic-ruffed pants, which has folds at each side from the belt down. The folds a inwards and all that is viewed is the seam where it was stitched.
The second is the flat-front pant. This is a sleek looking pant which is form-fitting and quite contemporary looking.
Third, the reverse-pleat pant is like the first except the folds are inside-out. The fold is reminiscent of uniform skirts.
The first and third pant bulges out at the hip due to the folds, making the hip area look bigger than they really are. Most wear it just because it of that reason – mostly in the color black since it’s “slimming”.
As any right-thinking female out there, it’s all about the length – from the belly-button, that is! Recent fashion has seen a popular trend with the “dropping” of the length in jeans. Normally, regular jeans button at the waist. New additions now go lower at the hips (called hipsters) which is about an inch from the belly-button and the ever-low, low-cut jeans. Low-cut jeans are for the daring girl as when she bends over, underwear is usually viewable at the backside (thong ta-thong-thong-thong) and from personal experience, even the butt crack and more… X_X
Males only have the option of the waist length jeans, unless they’re wearing baggy jeans which can fall anywhere from just below the waist to their butt.
Beginning with the front pockets, there are four types. The first is the standard scoop found in a pair of jeans. Second is often used for dress pants where the pocket is or is almost seamless with the side of the pants. Third, is the small pocket also found in dress pants with just the lip of the pocket visible. Then there are pants without pockets also most often seen in dress pants and the differently designed pants such as one’s that lace up at front.
Turning to the back pocket, typical back pockets are the “shield”-like shapes found in practically all jeans. Then comes the square with flap pocket usually found on cargo pants. Of course, there is the pant without the back pocket.
Then there is the cargo pant pocket. The cargo pant, as well as the carpenter pants, has an abundance of pockets – with two additional ones at each side of the leg. Though some pockets are flat, normal cargo pants tend to have a fold at the middle. When someone stores something in it, it bulges out. Enclosures for these types of pockets range from Velcro, buttons, and sometimes zippers.
There are a lot of pant variety out there, most of them for women. Pants with glitter, stripes, plaid, and even different cuts. Above, there is a wide leg pant similar to the traditional Japanese clothing and then there is the jumper. Pants may also have cuts at the side or the back for females.
To the right illustrates how pants lay or don’t lay on the shoe. Wide bell-bottomed pants and tapered pants tend not to fold up unless it is really long. Pants tend to have a slight fold at the bottom unless it’s baggy in which case, a lot of folds are present.
