The New Spring Pants: Fresh Updates to Feeling Comfortable

Casual days, whether it’s a day of fun with friends and family, a relaxing day at home, or a less formal day at the office, all still require one thing. Pants, right? And it’s just as important to look updated and appropriate on these days as it is for any other occasion. Athletic influences remain strong, so it’s a great time to really dive in to comfort by making sure you have a pair of pants that reflect the inspiration of your favorite old sweatpants with a lot more modern style. With slimmer legs being at the forefront of pant options, they make twill pants and broken-in jeans look polished, while soft cottons and fun colors make them weekend ready. This fit is even seen in shorts, and as inseams get longer, this straighter leg looks really new - the perfect way to update your game day look.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. If you missed our top picks for work (Tuesday) or after 5 (Wednesday) check them out in our Fashion Finds. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. See you next week.

Sometimes we find a pair of pants that we simply can’t resist – you know, the one you keep thinking about and you just have to go back for. That’s what these Vince cargo pants are. So, just go for it. The contemporary fit creates a whole new look for a utilitarian cargo pant that is simply trend right, without being trendy. The Italian cotton fabric is luxuriously soft and comfortable. And practically speaking, we all like having extra pockets for all our gadgets and stuff. The dark navy color is really versatile, working with any solid or pattern t-shirt during the day and a simple white oxford cloth or linen shirt in the evening. Sneakers or plain toe lace up oxfords complete the look.

7 For All Mankind - Standard - Luxe Performance Straight Leg Jeans
A few weeks ago, we talked about the top denim trends of the season. And lighter, broken-in washes were certainly on the list. 7 For All Mankind’s interpretation is an instant warm weather favorite. Using their Luxe Performance denim, they have created a cotton that is blended with high performance stretch fibers so these jeans retain their shape really well. The denim is also softer and lighter weight than most jeans, which is great all summer long. The detailed attention to well-placed whiskering and sanding give this light wash a perfectly worn-in look that works best with white or light pattern tops. These are the Standard model, which is a universal fit with a straight leg.

For those weekend afternoons running errands or dinner with friends at a casual restaurant, you can never go wrong with Tommy Bahama’s easy casual feel and classic fit. These pants have a jeans style, but in a cotton/linen blend that creates a marled appearance (blending shades of tan and white) to give them a great textured look. Wear a polo or t-shirt and white sneakers when you are out and about during the day. Then, take it up a notch for a casual evening, by wearing them with a white button up linen shirt and tan loafers, which look great with these pants.

Let’s face it, gents like elastic waist pants – it’s hard to beat the comfort. Tommy Bahama has cleverly dressed up the elastic waist of these classic-fitting pants so you can confidently wear them out of the house, by giving them a conventional button closure and zip fly. They also have a drawstring, so the elastic isn’t too tight. The 100% linen fabric is light and comfortable, even in the warmest of weather. The tan fine line stripe reads like a sophisticated solid, so you can wear them with a button up or polo with casual loafers for a laidback evening. And, of course, a t-shirt and flip flops will get you through any day of errands or enjoying some time at the park.

Step away from your basic denim to add some color to your jeans wardrobe. It’s just a stylish change-up that is so right for the season. And this pale blue is a color that doesn’t feel too daring, since it’s stone washed and hand-sanded for a worn-in look. It’s a color all gents can pull off and feel appropriate in – just pair them with a simple t-shirt or button up shirt. From Joe’s Jeans, they are seriously soft in lightweight cotton twill that has just a touch of stretch. They are the Brixton fit, which is Joe’s most popular model – it’s contemporary but not too skinny.

We always recommend a little refresh of some summer staples, like shorts, since you get so much wear out of them each year. This season, modern shorts are a bit longer and a bit narrower than the shorts of a few years ago. AG has done a versatile interpretation in a really soft cotton twill with a 9” inseam that hits just above the knee on most gents – the perfect length. The leg is slightly narrower than past years to make them look updated, but still completely comfortable and easy in a modern fit that is not too trim in the seat or thigh. The longer, leaner look really does create a clean, classic feel. The sage cliffs shade we’re showing is our favorite, but you can stock up with navy and tan through the ‘shop it’ button, as well. While a white or heather grey polo or t-shirt is easy, a cheery plaid shirt looks great, too.

These navy and red pattern shorts from Hugo Boss are designed for the golf course, but look just as good at a backyard party or dinner at a casual restaurant. The cotton blend is water repellant just in case you encounter a nasty water hazard on the course – or a serious drink spill. The right back pocket even has a silicone coating to secure your golf glove. We recommend a white or light blue polo or t-shirt for the golf course, and a simple white button up for an evening out. They are a great fit for most gents, in Boss’ classic fit that is modern and not too trim.

With golf on our minds, we can’t help but give you one more option to get you out on the course. You can hit the links wearing basic khaki pants or shorts – or, you can raise your golf wardrobe up a serious notch with these mint green pants from Bonobos. The breathable, performance fabric moves with you on the course. They even have an interior waistband shirt gripper and a zip opening at the leg hem for an easy fit over your golf shoes. It is offered in their Slim (contemporary, but not too trim) and Straight (modern with an easier, straight leg) fits. Keep true to the game, and wear them with a solid white polo.

UNIQLO - Men Dry Stretch Sweatpants
As we mentioned in Clothes and Conversation this week, sweatpants are no longer designed as baggy lounge wear to be worn but not seen. UNIQLO (the brand started in 1984 in Japan, creating classic fashion in contemporary fits at great prices and has built momentum ever since), has jumped on the casual style bandwagon by creating their sweatpants with DRY technology that whisks away moisture. They come in navy and black, but the classic grey is our top pick to show off the contrast zippers on the side entry pockets, which gives them an elevated look when paired with your favorite t-shirts and casual polos.
