No Break Pants: High Waters or High Style?

30th March

Wearing pants with no break, or as it is sometimes called a short or quarter break, might be considered a daring move. Until the somewhat recent past, it has been linked to dweebdom or elderly gentlemen with waistbands reaching their rib cages.

I have to say that when I see pants with no break, I think, “Love it!

As I walked around Manhattan last week, I noticed that short breaks are standard fare.

It is a clean look, with no puddling at the shoe. I don’t even mind seeing a bright sock or two peeking out under the hem. Why not add a little fun to an otherwise quite serious ensemble?

The short or quarter break is a must for skinny leg pants, wouldn’t you agree?

While I like the fact that this look reminds me of Darrin Stephens of the 1960’s series Bewitched, perhaps you don’t take a similar fancy to it.

I’m interested in seeing your vote!
