Pleats are Passe
Why point to this post here? Because ladies everything she's saying to the guys applies to us too! Pleats aren't just passe in my mind - their just downright unattractive! For EVERYONE! When you have a pounch it emphasizes it - when you don't they give you one!
AVOID them whenever possible!
I know, I know. If you've gained a few pounds over the years, the peated front can seem like a friend - trust me it's not. Flat fronts give you a cleaner slimmer line, which is what you want. You just have to be honest about sizing and buy a pair that fits well over your stomach and hips - get the waist altered if needed.
Trust me, you'll look great. And yes, you'll feel great too!
