What is the difference between Inverse Pleats and Reverse pleats and how do they differ from the standard pleats in pants?
Inverse pleats are pleats that face inwards towards the zipper in pants. These are also called inward facing pleats or Traditional inverse pleats.
Reverse pleats are pleats that face outwards towards the pockets and are also known as standard pleats.
In modern times, almost all pants are made with reverse pleats that face the pockets. In the 1800s to around 1970s pants had the traditional inverse pleats that faced the zipper.
