Slim Trousers: Always Appropriate, even in the Most Conservative Offices

Yes, Ryan Seacrest and Jimmy Fallon rock slim suits pretty exclusively at this point. But if you look back at history, JFK did, too. A slimmer silhouette, specifically in trousers, creates a very polished look that is perfect for the work place. No matter your size. The point of closer-fitting trousers are not to look trendy – or to showcase anything inappropriate at the office, if you know what we mean. It’s to create a finished and clean look, which is why people in the public eye embrace this fit. Once you’ve done the same, you’ll see how much leaner you look, especially if you ensure that your shirt and jacket fit properly, too.
Check back tomorrow for our after 5 picks, and Thursday for our favorite casual options. And let us know what you think in the comments below. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

Wow them at the office with these soft grey glen plaid Italian wool pants from Bonobos. Wear with a white linen shirt or a blue blazer with a white shirt and tie. Another great look is a sweater vest with white or blue shirt – tie optional. The combination of this classic pattern and sleek, trimmer silhouette make these a sophisticated, modern pair of pants.

Peter Millar uses a year round weight wool from Italy’s Lora Piana mill for these luxurious dress pants. The fit is certainly modern but not trim. These are perfect pants for the office with any sport coat. Complete this polished look with a small pattern shirt. We like the charcoal color for its versatility but there are four other colors from which to choose.

If you want to ease into the narrow leg look, try this all wool ‘Jeffrey’ model from Hugo Boss. It is their easier modern fit that is versatile enough for most gents, but as you can see from the picture the leg is updated and trimmer. The bottom is actually 17 inches wide compared to the 19 or 20 inch openings you probably already have in your closet. Not extreme, but definitely new. We like this dark blue color for the office with a dressier shirt.

From Zanella, these medium grey all wool dress pants offer another great option for the office. The leg silhouette is modern and the fit is versatile, making it an easy choice for most gents. We suggest wearing them with a small pattern shirt when you want to skip a jacket. But this is also a perfect choice for a pattern sport coat or navy blazer. Made in Italy, these will surely become one of your favorite pants.

A modern “office khaki” is essential today – many offices are casual all week, or at least Fridays. This one from AG Jeans, with just a hint of stretch, is a go-to around our offices. The fit is contemporary with a 15-inch leg opening (slim, but not skinny, coming in just a couple inches narrower than the knee). And light grey is such a fresh, updated alternative to the classic khaki color – equally neutral, working with most everything in your closet. Try them with a soft check or solid white sport shirt.

These cotton twill flat front pants from Peter Millar have a universal fit, but with a narrower leg for a crisp, modern look. These are some seriously soft pants, so comfort is reason #1 to buy them. Reason #2? Well, they’re just great looking. They come in a ton of colors - we are partial to the British tan, if you are just looking for a basic. We won’t be surprised if you stock up though. So pick up the sport red, too, for a great pop of color with a navy sweater.

For those casual days at the office, these washed grey jeans from J Brand are one of our favorite alternatives to khaki’s. The mid-grey color goes with most anything, and we really like the even, saturated color. They are super soft, too. Try a white or blue solid dress shirt for a more polished office look that you can finish with a sport coat. This is a modern fitting silhouette that works for most body types, while still being a great update with it’s straight – not skinny – leg.
