The difference between a crisp pair of pants and a sloppy pair of pants could be a few centimeters of fabric. Online menswear retailer Bonobos is opening a store on May 1 at 85 Newbury St, to help confused, hapless dudes understand the difference and to find the best-fitting duds. Style and fit experts — “Bonobos Guides” — will give mini-lessons about mixing prints, styling a pocket square, and cuffing pants to inspire sartorially challenged long after the temporary store skips town.

Guys can schedule 45-minute appointments or just drop in. Swim trunks, sweaters, jeans, polos, and the brand’s most popular item, washed chinos, will be available for purchase.
