Let's talk about pants for a minute. Getting a perfect fit for your pants is more often than not neglected.
Men's pants are either too tight or too lose. Normally, less thought is given to how a pair of pants fits than how it looks while the latter is equally pants.
You need well-fitted pants not just for achieving a polished outfit but also for your own sake, because well-fitted pants can be really comfortable. Anyway, wearing ill-fitted pants to an interview is a big mistake.
I mean the most obvious pointer is that if they're too baggy and falling off like this if you forget a belt one day:
Then you get rid of them.
But in case you're confused about how to judge what a comfortable pair of pants looks like, here is a guide to help you with that.1) The Pinch Test

You need to pinch your pants while you're wearing it. Ideally, you should be able to pinch about 1 inch of fabric but not more. If you can pinch more, that means your pants are lose and you should get a smaller size.
Your pants should never fit too tight or bend at the knees.2) The Consistency Test
You don't want your pants to be so uncomfortable that you have problems adjusting while sitting and standing up. A pair of pants with the said tightness won't let you move around freely which defeats the purpose of pants.
Trust me, if you get the fit right, you won't even realize you're wearing pants. They'll feel like PJs. For that, your pants need to feel consistent around your butt and lower legs. A similar circumference ensures a good fit.3) Never Trust A Number
The waist size that you have might not match with the waist size of some other brand. Within a brand, what is a 36 this year, might not be the same next year. You need to go to the trial room or get fittings done properly. You can't assume your size. Never make that mistake.4) The No Break Check
You need to check if your pants end right above your ankle to create a no-break effect. This complements your body structure, and will make you look taller as well.
