The not-too-slim-but-not-too-baggy fit says, “Just have to find my keys, then we’re out the door!”, while the drawstring waist says, “I’d also be fine staying home to watch TV on the couch.”

These pants feel like if the wind pants of our youth (youths?) just got back from summer camp looking grown. You know what we’re talkin’ ’bout…

Best tailored sweats: Nike

When it comes to the best athleisure pants for guys, you need a pair of Nike’s Tech Fleece sweats in your arsenal.

As for fit? They should hit right at the ankle bone. If the pants are too long, they’ll bunch at the top of your shoe, wasting a perfectly sexy ankle-flashing opportunity and dooming the whole vibe to¬†older brother’s hand-me-down’s.

Not what you’re going for here, to be clear.

These pants definitely have a decidedly athletic vibe, while the sturdy material and trim fit make them totally acceptable to wear miles from the gym.

Best dressy performance work pants: Mizzen+Main

These totally polished pants from SG HQ fave Mizzen+Main are sneaky comfortable. Designed with a lightweight, 4-way stretch fabric, you can be sure you’ll be comfortable wearing them for a long day at the office.

Maybe best of all? They’re machine washable (though you should line dry them to help them keep their shape).

Best casual performance work pants: Chubbies

An athleisure pant from another brand we love, this pair from Chubbies boasts the same fit and stretch fabric as their iconic Original Shorts for ultimate comfort. Dress them up or dress them down, you’ll be surprised at how at home these pants look in a variety of settings, from work week to weekends.
