BookATailor NYC - Pleats

A pleat is a type of fold formed by doubling fabric back upon itself in order to secure it in place. Its use in regards to clothing is to gather a wide piece of fabric to a narrower circumference. In ancient Egypt rulers wore pleats in order to highlight their status level. They remained more or less a luxury until the invention of synthetic fabrics. As a result of this invention fashion designers benefited from this as well as producers of room textiles, because pleats do not take up their original shape again under the influence of warmth or humidity. Flat-front pants also regarded as having no pleats, have a feature called a dart that allows for the fabric to lie flat against the legs. The pleats or no pleats look is generally based on the body type. Slim men usually stick to the flat-front pants, while bigger men benefit from pleats because of the extra room.
