The Best Men’s Trousers for a New Wardrobe

If you were building a new wardrobe from scratch, which trousers would you buy first? Which will give you the most options and look just as good on Casual Fridays as they do in a formal meeting? If you play your cards right, you’ll opt for a high quality pair of pants to that match up with a variety of other clothes: polo shirts, button downs, jackets, ties, etc. Here are some of the best men’s trousers that you should consider when creating your wardrobe.

Charleston Khakis

The key here is versatility. There are few things that won’t match a pair of Charleston Khakis. That applies both in range of colors and range of clothing types. In other words, you can wear a suit blazer and a tie along with the khakis… or you can dress it down with a polo.

At some point in your life, you’re going to need to dress up in a suit. It might be one time for a job interview, or it might be frequently throughout the week, depending on your line of work.
