HOOK AND BAR OR BUTTON CLOSURE
While they are both popular choices for tailored trousers, the hook and bar closure is highly recommended for those who want a minimalist look, while a button closure adds a touch of detail to your plain trousers. Choose to have them on an extended tab for a classic gentlemanly look.
BELT LOOPS VS SIDE TABS
If you don’t wear belts regularly, but still want the freedom to adjust the size of your waistband, tailor your pants with side tabs. If you have a nice dress belt that you’d like to show off, tailor pants with belt loops that are wide enough to hold your belt.
Side tabs are also perfect for tuxedo trousers, since belts tend to be a tad too bulky for black tie events.
FRONT OR BACK FACING PLEATS VS FLAT FRONT
The general rule is to tailor pants with pleats if you have wider hips or thighs. Why? You wouldn’t want the front of your trousers looking too tight, or to put too much strain on the seams. Pleats are a key detail of classic menswear, and help you to pull off a sartorial dressy look.
When you tailor a pair of pants, you have the choice to opt for the number of pleats - single or double, and whether to have them forward or reverse facing. Pleats opening towards the fly is associated with English tailoring while pleats facing the pockets is associated with Italian tailoring.
Alternatively, you could do without pleats and go for flat front pants for a 21st century modern and slim look.
