Pant Style Guide

Home Uniform Guide Pant Style Guide

Summit West Independent School’s basic uniform includes black or khaki pants. Guidelines for choosing appropriate pants are as follows:

  • Acceptable pants have a structured waist band – a button and zipper, and belt loops. There may be an elastic gather at the back of the pants for younger children.
  • Most pants will have both an inseam and outseam.
  • If there is a pocket on the back of the pant, it should be a welt pocket, with or without a button. Flap pockets are not permitted.
  • Pants should have a straight, classic or boot cut leg. Slim, or skinny leg cuts are acceptable only if the pants are not made of material with a high percentage of lycra or spandex (see examples below). Ankle cuts are allowed, however please note that students must wear trouser socks.
  • No rivets or embellishments, denim, stretch pants, leggings, or cargo pants.
