Every Man Essentials: The Every Pant
There’s a right way and a wrong way to wear grey pants, but if you’re taking the information from my Every Man Essentials list seriously, then I’m confident you can wear grey pants correctly. And, with these fantastic options, it’d be pretty difficult to style grey trousers in an unappealing way. Pick up a pair of these pants, and you’ll put them on heavy wardrobe rotation. Grey pants are so versatile, — not too casual, not too dressy — and they combine well with virtually any colour. Wear them 9 to 5, and even after. Check my picks, priced high to low.
1. Etro Flat-Front Trousers ($350, Bergdorfs): Arguably my favourite Italian fashion house, Etro is famous for creating classic pieces that look tailor-made. Case in point? Their grey/blue flat-front trousers. Perfectly fitted, these slim pants are done in a four-season cotton. They wear best with a lighter coloured shirt, but that’s not to say you can’t layer a dark sweater over top.
2. Bowery Wool Pants in Regular Fit ($118, J.Crew): J.Crew’s Bowery pants in regular fit will look flattering on every man. These wool pants are three-season friendly (a little too heavy for the heat of summer), and they’re partially lined so they won’t itch.
3. Kenneth Cole Reaction® Dress Pants (sale $39.99, Sears): Some would say these Kenneth Cole Reaction® dress pants from Sears are more contemporary than classic, and I won’t argue (although let’s admit, they do have a timeless appeal). With a made-for-you fit, these dress pants have a slightly lower rise and fitted styling. The poly-blend (don’t cringe) means these pants are machine-washable, which is great for those of you who are low maintenance.
