Four Basic Rises For Men Made To Order Jeans
The distance from the top of the waistband to the bottom of the crotch is called the rise. Men’s jeans come in four basic rises:
- High Rise: Typically worn above the belly button, jeans that come with a high rise are ideal for heavier men. Keep the shirt tucked out.
- Mid Rise: These middling jeans are meant to touch, but not overtake, the belly button. Feel free to tuck in all you want.
- Low Rise: Wear these below the belly button for a casual, relaxed look.
- Low Crotch: For a sagging, slouchy look, there’s always the low crotch or drop crotch style. They tend to be baggy around the hips, waist, and rear.
