Pleated pants have folds or creases down the front. The folds add texture and give the pants a more structural look. They also give more room at the waist for big and tall. Pleated pants are found in dress pants and casual pants like chinos.
Pleated pants are comfy. The folds give extra space at the waist and hips. This is good if you like a loose fit or have a bigger waist. The extra fabric also keeps the pants from feeling too tight. Pleated pants can be dressed up or down. Wear them with a blazer and shoes for a formal look. Or wear them with a t-shirt and sneakers to be casual. Pleated pants come in single, double, or triple pleats. The pleats can be at the front or back of the pants.
