It depends I guess on whose judging: now days many look like older people trying to look like teens on fade dress which is looks silly to me.

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

I agree.

I like them, and when I have to get dressed up, which isn't that often, I wear them.

I do not like flat front dress pants, they are too constricting and uncomfortable, and men that wear pleated pants, understand what I mean.

besides, they still sell them in stores so they must still be in style.

so I like them.

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.

you are a great woman, I already know this, and I'm sure Mr CSD knows as well!!

I was just thinking about this recently as I had a business interview and my suit pants are pleated.

I too think pleats look ludicrous, but it is what it is.

I have had both. I have decided that I will no longer buy them. I am rather average build, 170 lbs, 34 w. 41 c. and have no big belly. I just think they do make me look bigger around. Yes, they are not as constricting but they tend to look like balloons and make me look bigger than I think I am. JMHO

If you look at the picture of those two women, you could see that their waist lines are in different places - one has it higher, ( and the waistline is shorter,) the other one - lower, and the waist line is longer. Same with men. If you have lower hips, you'll have tendency to wear pants lower. At the same time, if you have lower hips, yet you still wear suit pants higher, the pleats hit the most slender part of the waistline, filling the gap between the waist and hips, so the body looks well-proportionate. But if a man/woman have higher hips, than pleats create extra bulk around that short(er) waist and widest point of the hips, and this doesn't flatter figure at all. So flat front pants it is.

Nope, I can't agree. Why does it look awful to you? When I was married, I finally convince my husband who was 5'8" (he said 5'9") and probably a good 50 lbs. overweight. The only way to make him not look as overweight were pleats. Same with me but I didn't have a weight issue. I prefer pleated pants.

Rock 'em nightcrawler. They're classic. I especially love single-pleat pants tailored Sinatra-style. He knew a thing or two about style and single-pleat pants were part of his signature look.

Clooney copied the look in Ocean's Eleven. Cooler then the ice in a leaded crystal glass of Jack Daniels.
