Men’s 1950s dress pants were classic pleated pants with a sharp center crease. They fit wider than today’s skinny fit trousers, but by the end of the decade they were moving in that direction. They also featured a high waist that went up to the belly button. Popular colors were medium blue, chocolate brown, grey, and tan. Casual men’s 1950s trousers came in teal, maroon, light blue and rust. Textured fabrics were a big deal in the 1950s. Corduroy was common in fall and winter. Tweed, linen, nubby wool, and brushed cotton were trendy year-round.
Denim jeans continued to be high waisted, with a wide leg and rolled cuffs in dark denim (no fading, rips or decorative pockets). Levi’s still makes original pairs, and many brands reproduce denim blue jeans (Dungarees) for Rockabilly greasers.
