Men should wear trousers that can hold their own intellectually (though long may the loungewear trend continue.) AllSaints’ Tallis trousers are a reliable choice for interviews, date nights, office days, and any other occasion where a cigarette crop and a cosy cotton and wool blend are required. Just £139 from allsaints.com!
There will always be that one pair of pants that you return to, no matter how many others you acquire. The Dickies 874 Work Pant is our go-to; they’re a classic straight leg that goes with anything. The weight of our entire wardrobe would surely cause them to sag, but the taut twill fabric ensures that they maintain their shape and colour for a polished look that lasts. Therefore, you should also avoid the khaki, charcoal, and gingerbread coloured ones, as we are doing. Costing £65, it can be purchased from dickieslife.com.
Pants with pressed pleats are a sure sign of a man’s attention to fashion, and the slim leg trousers by Fendi are no exception. Made from luxurious wool in a deep plum shade, these add a touch of class to any ensemble they’re a part of. So that? Wear a sleek rollneck or fitted sweatshirt atop them to complement their neat shape. £580 £348. Here: harveynichols.com
Topman’s vegan leather trousers with a rippling crocodile design are a classy addition to any wardrobe in need of party-ready bottoms.
