The purpose of this study was to compare the pattern of two men's pants for education and two for industry, and to analyze the patterning method that is most suitable for the body shape of middle-aged men. As a result of appearance evaluation for 3D simulation, J pattern was evaluated as the best in most items, and H pattern was analyzed to be the most inappropriate. As a result of measuring the airgap, all four patterns of the waist circumference were evaluated to have very small airgap, and the J pattern had the smallest airgap for the pants. J pattern was analyzed as the most suitable pattern for middle-aged men's body shape by synthesizing the appearance evaluation of virtual wear, color distribution, sectional view, airgap, etc. However, in the case of J pattern, it was analyzed that the pants length needs to be modified. Since this study compared and analyzed only two patterns for education and two for industry, it is thought that the development of pants for middle-aged men should be developed through actual wearing experiments with J patterns.
