Pleats (or plaits, as they used to be known) are folds formed in clothing by doubling the cloth back on itself to create a fold. Pleats are commonly found on trousers, as well as kilts and skirts for women.

Pleats on pants have become extremely unfashionable in recent times (especially on khakis), as they have come to be associated with boring middle-management types, and tend to billow up in unflattering ways when you sit down.
