Don’t underestimate the power of the pleats, but don’t allow for any feeling of being overwhelmed about the issue either. When selecting a pair of slacks or a suit, make sure that you take your time and actually try on the whole suit or slacks in their entirety, making sure you are completely comfortable with the fit you are purchasing.
The last thing that you would want during the middle of an interview or your work day would be to have your pants be uncomfortably fitting or, splitting down the rear/crotch. When buying a pair of new really well made slacks, they will require a hem by a professional tailor, so if you are unsure about a pair of pants you recently purchased, at the very least, get your local tailor’s opinion about the fit to assure that they will work best for your build.
Traditionally most suits used to come accompanying pleated pants, with no option of a flat front.

The suit jacket acts as a complementing cover to the extra fabric or bunching that is created. Pleated pants will not look smooth or sliming without a suit jacket worn atop it. When purchasing suits pleated is still recommended for the larger build gentlemen who require more space for movement and wear ability.
