The Case for Men Wearing Dress Pants Every Day

Not every day is casual Friday. In fact, for some men, wearing a great pair of pants is about more than looking good—it’s about feeling and performing at their very best. And that’s not always possible with a worn-out pair of jeans or the sweat pants at the bottom of the dresser drawer. If you want to live up to a higher standard of dress, then we think there’s a case to be made for wearing dress pants every day.

Dress Pants Can Deliver High Performance

Before we talk about style, let’s talk about function. It may seem that track pants offer the ultimate in function and weather-resistance. And in some cases that may even be true. But when it comes to our daily lives, Performance Dress Khakis may have more to offer.

A good pair of pants can suit you well in the board room or at home—all without missing a beat. For example, our Flat Front Performance Dress Khakis utilize 100% cotton for comfort and breathability, enhanced by wrinkle and stain resistant properties that make them ideal for weekday wear. These are the pants that you can wear if you never want to dress out of place while still enjoying yourself to the fullest.

Dress Pants Don’t Have to be Dark

When we say “dress pants,” you may picture dark suits best for important meetings and social milestones rather than light, comfortable pants. But who says that all dress pants have to be for dark suits? You can just as easily wear our Polyester Wool Tropical Flat Front pants in light grey, navy, or tan if you want to liven up your daily wardrobe. These are the kinds of pants that look natural with a simple button-up on top—tie optional.

True: pants like these include a buttoned-up style that’s ideal for life’s most formal situations. But with proper layering—especially in the cooler months—you can pull off a variety of looks with light dress pants.

Dress Pants are Really, Really Comfortable

Here’s one thing you don’t often hear about dress pants: they may just be the most comfortable pants you own. When they fit right, they’re flexible, light, and breathable. They’re the best part of the suit. So why not make them an everyday option?

Consider these Super 130’s Tasmanian Gabardine Flat Front pants. With the right fit, these pants will be breathable and flexible—maybe even more than your favorite pair of casual, around-the-house pants. Get used to wearing dress pants every day, and you might just find yourself wondering if you can also get away with them on Casual Fridays.
