How can you tell that your men’s pants are too small? Aaron Marino of alpha m. shares a pair of pants he bought online, and they are incredibly small. Alpha’s tailor said that sizes for pants in the store don’t correlate with the actual waist size (for example, Aaron’s actual size 30 is a 31 -32 in the store).

The online store actually sent a legit size 30 to Aaron. Once the tailor altered the mid-rise pants larger, Aaron now has some pull around the front. The pants are still too small and don’t work because the pockets flair with pulling. He still has some tailoring options for the pocket to be kept closed; however, the stress and pulling is still occurring. He is now donating the pants to charity. Pants too big or too small- no good!
