Pleated pants remain one of the most polarizing items of clothing, with many continuing to stay away for fear of looking dowdy or outdated. But the pleated pants of today are a far cry from those of yesteryear, having greatly evolved beyond the ill-fitting iterations dads were keen to sport in the ’90s.
Take Todd Snyder’s Pleated Pants as evidence. The brand offers a casual take on the silhouette, keeping the upper body relaxed without being baggy and tapering the bottom of the pants to help create a more streamlined silhouette. The pleats remain subtle while still lending the pants a tailored appearance that’s balanced out by the elasticized waist, meaning they’ll just as easily pair with a tee as they would a button-down.
