Horrible. My husband had them when I met him, but I made him buy all new pants.

Nope. As soon as he isn't standing there with his feet so far apart it will look Awful.

I don't think they look as bad as people claim. Seems like a weird thing to worry about now, though. I haven't seen them in stores since Monica moved in with Chandler on Friends.

I need pleated pants because, for lack of a better way of saying it, I'm well endowed and need the extra space & comfort up front... skinny jeans? I'll never wear them unless I want to be sterile.

No we cannot because we all have things that we like and dislike and I see nothing wrong with pleated pants.

If you do not like them do not purchase them, problem solved.

You "made" him buy all new pants?
Mr. CSD would have laughed at me had I "told" him to buy new pants if his current pants were not worn out.
I would never dream of telling Mr. CSD what he can and cannot wear, he is a grown man, his parents did a fine job raising him and he does not need my permission to wear the clothing he wants to wear.

Jeff, it all depends on the structure of your body - and interestingly enough, it has little to do with weight - ( both for men and women by the way.) It's all about your hips, actually - whether you have low or high hips. If you have low hips, pleats will look very well, if you have high hips - you'll have to stick to "no pleats" pants.

This is an example for women, but same rule goes for men.

Pleated pants make you look like you put your pants on backwards.

No.

It's basically a style issue. Pleated pants went out of style. As is typical with fads, it overreached. Pleated pants are making a come back actually. The standard is still flat front. By necessity, however, pleats are coming back. If you've got my body type and want to wear something that's slim cut as is in vogue today pleats are really a necessity. If you're a stockier build with more thigh/butt than the poles that slim cut really works for, going with flat front slim cut gets restrictive long before it's cut slim enough to be en vogue. Basically pleats were there for a reason and it's about what works for your body type. If you're a slender build and not carrying extra weight, there's no reason for pleats. You don't have the constriction issues in the thighs. If you're a stockier build and/or carrying extra weight in the thigh/butt (seat) region, pleats let you get the extra fabric you need without and '80s sack suit cut that's completely out of style today.
