Men Pant Patterns

DigiQwest | Posted in Patterns on

Hello Everyone,

 I am looking for patterns to make dressy men pants, does anyone know where I can find some

    Have you looked at Burda pattens? I also think Vogue does some nice suits too.

      I found a great pattern for dressy looking men's pants with a pleated front which I liked so well that I made a muslin out of it. Kwiksew patterns number 2860 (pleated front) & 3267 (flat front) are the best patterns I've found to date. If I make a suit for someone, these are the patterns I use for the pants unless it's a tux. Both patterns have side front pockets, welt rear pockets, belt loops and a fly zipper front. You can find both of these patterns online and as always read the ENTIRE instructions for alterations. They are also both pretty easy sews if that helps.

      Since I sew a great deal, I've never understood why there is such a shortage of more formal men's patterns.... we do after wear clothes! Also since I live in Alaska, there is a shortage of clothes for anyone over 6'2" tall unless you're over weight so.... there's my two cents worth, hope it helps

        I used to make all of my ex-husband's dress pants and slacks.  I always used Burda which fit well, and had great details.

          I'm a short and curvy female, Burda almost always fits better than other patterns.

          My ex was 6'4 and 170 lbs.  Burda pants didn't fit his butt nicely, but the Vogue patterns did.  Could more more a shape issue than just height and build.

          Other than the crotch seam shaping and depth, there are so many other factors at play.  Different styles (pleats/no pleats, pocket style) make a difference too.  It's just trial and error finding what works for a specific person.
