Tight Clothing on Men
  • Question:

    Is it preferred for men to wear loose slacks, or to cover using a longer shirt outside of prayer? What about tight jeans?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    It is better to have loose slacks and something (whether a longer shirt, a coat or a jacket) that covers his rear.

    Somewhat tight jeans would be at least somewhat disliked and blameworthy. Form-fitting jeans that fully define the shape and form of a part of the body that must be covered with clothing (awra) during normal wear would be sinful to wear and prohibitively disliked.

    Men have to obey Allah about dress just like women do.
