So I've gotten two different pairs of khakis so far to try and find which types of pleats are best for me, and I'm not having much luck. The first pair, double reverse pleats, seems like too much and the second pair, single reverse, now seems like too little. Both also have the problem of the pleats not staying closed even though I specified 1.5" pleat depth. What I want to know is the following: Do I need to increase my pants hip size to compensate, would single or double forward pleats work better for my body type (5'9", 183 lbs mostly in gut with large thighs) and what should the standard pleat depth be? Can post pictures if necessary, any advice is appreciated.
