Most American pants sizes are based on width and length, measured in units of inches. All well-known manufacturers use two measurements: While the first measure is between 26 and 48 and indicates the waistband, the second measure is between 30 and 36 and reflects stride length.
Pants are produced in many, many different waistband and stride length combinations so that you can easily find the right pair for your individual physique. The first number in pants is width: The size of the waistband is usually indicated with a W.
For pants with a value of W25, this is taken to mean a pair of pants with the smallest, most common waistband width, namely 25 inches. The second number in pants is length: The leg length is also indicated in inches and is marked with an L. Just as with classic clothing sizes, the inner seam is measured as well.

One criterion with which to classify different types of pants is the cut. In addition, pants are differentiated according to how wide they are, what leg shape they have, or how high the waistband is. This is how, for example, pants with a rather low waistband are called hipsters , and ones with a very high waistband are called High Waist.
Also, there are bootcut pants which have a wider cut of the lower legs area. Bootcut can be found from many American brands. Bootcut paints often also have straight legs but in contrast to straight cut, the legs are wider on the bottom to make room for boots.
Straight cut pants do not have that additional space. They just have straight legs from top to bottom. Leggings, Treggings, stirrup, drainpipes, capris and hot pants have a rather narrow cut. Skinny or petite fit is the newest trend. Here the pants are not loose at the ankle but very tight fitting. For many people, petite fit does not work well as their calves might be too large. While Capris reach the middle of the calves and are usually slightly slit at the sides, hot pants are narrow, tight shorts.
