Asides being picky with colours, knowing your measurements is very important.

If you don't know your measurement, grab a measuring tape. Place the tape to parts of your body and get the number. If you're unsure, go to your tailor.

4. Pay attention to fabric

Quality over quantity should be your slogan when shopping clothes. While fabric will make your skin itch, others won't be as durable as you'd hope.

To know the type of fabric, check the tags as the material descriptions with the label are often written there. Some information includes the percentage of clothing material, proper washing, and others.

If you're short or stocky, you should be looking for a half break or full break in the trouser, so it hits the shoe perfectly.

Getting the right length lies in your understanding of your measurements as this will go a long way in helping you shop for the right pair of trousers.
