Until the whole kilt thing takes off here in America, men will continue to be forced by society to wear dress pants at most functions that fall under your girlfriend’s “Just look nice” dress code dictum. Say, a matinee performance of Hamilton with her parents, or that sexual harassment seminar that you’re pretty sure everyone in your office has to attend but are too nervous to confirm with HR.
Meaning, you’ve got enough to worry about. So we’ve rounded up some the best men’s dress pants for you to browse. Happy shopping!
Shop 12 of the best men’s dress pants to wear this year:
top row, middle – Club Monaco, $170 – The dress trouser, updated. We love the slim cut and cool cotton fabric with a comfortable amount of stretch. These pants feel and fit like a chino, with a more dressy, upscale feel.
second row, far left – Banana Republic, $90 – Banana Republic has been going through some ch-ch-ch-changes, and we’r excited for the metamorphosis. Their slim performance stretch wool dress pant sits below the waist, is slimmer in the thigh, and tapered at the leg opening for a modern, fresh look.
second row, middle – H&M, $30 – Because dress pants don’t need to break the bank. Whenever a guy is on a budget, but still needs to dress up, I always direct them to H&M. My brother has a suit from the Swedish retailer that he paid maybe a hundred bucks for, another fifty to have tailored, and hand to god he could have worn it on his wedding day; it looks that sharp. Don’t sleep on their workwear, I’m telling ya.
