The 5 Pants Every Man Should Own

Last updated: December 20, 2019

Pants are important, but what most men don’t realize is you should have different types of pants for different occasions and activities that you engage in.

We all know (or currently are) that guy that only wears his one pair of jeans – no matter what they’re doing, or where they’re at.

but you can look a lot sharper and more fashionable if you have different types of pants you can wear that fit what you’re engaging in better.

1. Classic Blue Jeans

You can’t go wrong with these bad boys (well you can if you get a pair that is ill fitting).

Blue jeans are the foundation of your pants empire, your main pair of blue jeans should be:

  • High quality
  • Properly Fitting
  • Comfortable

To get a pair of blue jeans of that caliber you will need to dish out for quality, I recommend:

2. Chino Pants

A nice pair of Chinos goes a long way.

The color you choose is up to personal preference, but if this is your first time dabbling into the world of chinos I recommend choosing a more standard color.

A classic pair of khaki or grey chinos can fit easily into your existing wardrobe.

3. Trousers

Trousers are kind of a wide category, they can cover anything from dress pants to well – anything that really goes over your legs.

In this case, I love the current trend of cropped trousers. Pair them with some clean white sneakers and you can’t get a better summer look.

4. Sweatpants

Sweatpants have come such a long way in the fashion world that they’re no longer relegated to those loose grey sweats you only bust out when you’re at home and you know you’re not leaving the house.

A nice pair of well fitting / tapered sweats can look amazing and can be used for anything from going to the gym, or running errands on a Sunday while still looking sleek (yet comfortable!)

5. Distressed Denim

Distressed denim or ‘ripped jeans’ are more of a young mans pair of pants but I still think they look amazing if you’re going for a more chic, trendy, streetwear look.

Pair your ripped jeans with a plain white or black tee and that’s really all you need to look amazing.
