Why I Wear No Break Pants

A couple of weeks ago an older woman came up to me on the street and said your pants are far too short. That along with all the other times that I see people looking strangely down at my ankle got me thinking that I need to cover this topic. You can look back at probably every outfit that I’ve worn and see that all my pants have no break. That means the pants end before hitting my shoes. I have all my pants tailored this way and almost every other blogger I follow does the same. I don’t copy them but if most menswear professionals are doing it then it can’t be wrong. 

I for one just think it creates a much cleaner look. I like clean and straight lines when it comes to clothes. I truly believe that you don’t need to make your outfits overly creative with loud colors and clashing prints. Well fitted basics can be enough to make you the best dressed no matter where you are. For me well fitted means there is no extra fabric where it is not needed. Would you wear a blazer when the arm length is so long that it touches your thumbs? Definitely not so I don’t see the reason behind having fabric pooling around your shoes. 

I’m not trying to say that wearing half break trousers is a bad thing . If that’s what you like then stick to it but try being open to showing a little ankle sometimes especially during the hotter days of summer. If you're a no break guy like me then next time someone comments on your pants asking ‘if you’re expecting a flood’ just ignore them. Let them wear what they want and you wear what you want.

A full description of all the pants breaks and which one is best for you will be coming soon. Keep in mind this is just an opinion piece and I'm in no way telling you what you need to do. Let me know what you think.
