How to Pick Your Next Pair of Charleston Khakis

There’s no doubt that a quality pair of Charleston Khakis can completely change your wardrobe overnight. Rather than relying on baggy khakis or cheap denim to add versatility to your wardrobe, these Charleston Khakis will imbue your outfits with a classic sense of style, whether you’re wearing a T-shirt or a blazer up top. The only question: which one do you pick? If that’s the conundrum you find yourself in, we have some simple advice.

Figure Out What You Need

You might already have a good idea about what types of Charleston Khakis you want. But what about what you need? For example, consider how one pair of Charleston Khakis might suit you better for work, while another might work better on the weekends. If you don’t have many pairs of khakis that are office-friendly, then there’s a good chance that’s what you’ll need to have in your wardrobe.

Focus on Versatility

Versatility is key here. If you’re only planning on buying one pair of Charleston Khakis, then you have to make that pair count. You can accomplish that with versatility. The more versatile your Charleston Khakis are, the more you can use them on a week-in, week-out basis.

For example, take a look at our Charleston Khakis in Charleston Brick. This is a pair of khakis that’s as well suited to a business casual suit with a blazer as it is to a weekend get-together with friends. Investing in a pair of Charleston Khakis shorts is a great decision for the warmer months, but chances are you’ll have a little more trouble wearing them to the office.

Narrow Your List

Once you know what you need and what kind of versatility to seek, you can narrow down your list to two or three candidates. At this point, it becomes an issue of preference. Do you prefer the Charleston Brick or the versatile and more traditional Khaki version? The pants share a lot when it comes to fit and comfort, so what you’re really choosing between is the look and style of the trousers.

The good news: there’s no right or wrong answer here. Your preference will be the ultimate decider. So pick which one you like more—the one that suits your style—and enjoy! Of course, it doesn’t hurt to go for more than one option!

More About Our Charleston Khakis

If you’re still unsure, here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about our Charleston Khakis:

  • Double Pleat or Flat Front? It comes down to preference and what you’ll use the pants for. Pleating is generally better suited for the office or conference room environment, while flat front makes for a more casual option.
  • Which color to get? Charleston Brick is a hallmark of traditional southeastern style, but it’s hard to argue with the equally-versatile khaki. Lighter colors are great for summer, while versatile colors can serve you through multiple seasons.
  • What if they don’t fit? We offer complimentary hemming on all of our trousers so you can get the perfect fit no matter what. Keep in mind that once the trousers are altered, however, they’re non-returnable.

Now the decision: which pair of Charleston Khakis will you have in your dresser? Shop today!
