Pants for a Purpose

From wool trousers with wide crotches for horseback riding 3000 years ago to relaxed-fitting pants fit for an active office-to-soiree lifestyle in the 80s, there’s always been a motive behind the man’s trouser. Now we’ve arrived in 2021, men are regaining their liberation of fashion, experimenting with styles that ooze personality and practicality, both essential for this new hybrid lifestyle we find ourselves in. As we create careers, build relationships and get comfort all from home, men are gravitating towards functional and versatile attire that can transition effortlessly between the diversity of daily occurrences.

Men’s Pants Trends 2021

This men’s pants style guide takes you through the main types of trousers for men to look and feel good in 2021.

Chinos

Chino needs no introduction. Though, you may be interested to know that they’ve been reinvented to be more functional and comfortable than ever before, particularly those made with bi-stretch twill material and a flattering narrower leg opening. This timeless design offers the durability to ace outdoor adventures, conference calls and date night. Pair with a simple tee or crewneck sweater for effortless style or take it up a notch with a button-up Oxford shirt.

Linen Drawstring Trousers

The days of uncomfortably tight trousers are over now that we welcome drawstrings into 2021. Incorporating this seemingly casual feature to a cool and breezy linen trouser instantly makes for a smart look that can be dressed up or down to suit the occasion. A linen drawstring trouser is an excellent addition to a seasonally transitional wardrobe.

Tapered Jeans

A classic yet on-trend jean can be hard to bring to fruition, but here we have the taper fit jean, which is undeniably combining the two in 2021. A streamlined, tapered leg cut on the slimmer side will flatter just about any guy, and depending on the length they look good both cuff and uncuffed. Jeans have always been a grab-and-go for most men, but the taper fit jean is one of the most versatile yet. Enjoy the way they work with everything from your sneakers and boots to formal slides.

Corduroy Pants

The 80s relaxed vibes might be heavily influencing the men’s fashion of 2021, but 70s will always have a way of weaving its textural trends into the current times, and corduroy is no exception. Go for darker shades and a pair that sits slightly below the waist in a slim fit as this will keep it in the cool category, particularly when paired with a simple tee and jacket. It’s not often we get to have fun with fabric so take 2021 as your opportunity to step into corduroy.

Pleated Trousers

You might be working from the home office, but a pleated pant can remind you to remain in boss mode as you pace the house searching for your coffee mug. Pleated trousers made for comfortable workwear in the 80s, and although since then the tailored look hasn’t always pleased the eye, this classic look is making a serious comeback as the oversized cut and flexible comfort appeal to the 2021 working man. You’ll slip into these with ease, likely making them your corporate or formal family affair go-to. Suitable for layering, you can dress up or down pleated trousers by switching sneakers and a plain tee to lace-up boots and a layered sweater and jacket.

Cargo Pants

Oversized equals cool, casual and comfy. No wonder cargo pants are on the list – they tick all the boxes. They’ve dabbled in many an era from Military vibes to 90s boyband mania, and now they’ve evolved to a more ‘grown-up’ look – so long as you pick the right pair. A khaki pair in a medium slim fit with an appropriate number of visible pockets will give you street cred, especially when layered with a tee and light jacket. Like the others in this men’s style guide, you can dress these pants up or down, so you can work them into a style that says you.

What’s the Future of Men’s Clothing?

When determining which men’s trousers to incorporate into your wardrobe for the future, consider sustainability-focused brands that follow ethical practices. This not only leaves less of a carbon footprint and supports fair labour, but as the slow fashion movement suggests, time is taken in the design and manufacturing process of each garment. The result? A wardrobe filled with exceptional quality classic and unique menswear built to last. This means you won’t have to empty your wardrobe of unravelled items, which helps to reduce waste. Choosing sustainable fashion helps to save water waste and air pollution, so do your bit and be a part of the movement working towards a healthier environment for our planet and its people.
