Your ideal work pants should look dressed up (yet casual enough, if you’re not working in finance), get you through your commute in comfort (be it train, bike, car or … scooter, if you must) and not cost you an arm and (wait for it … ) a leg.
That’s why I’m a fan of the Nomad Pant from Proof. Available in five colors and in slim or straight fits, these technical chinos are breathable and feature a hidden zip pocket. The two-way stretch Japanese Toray twill has just the right amount of flex, and the pants don’t look too shiny — an issue with non-cotton, technical fashion.
I wear these more for air travel than day-to-day commutes, but they’re perfectly good for your normal 9-5 routine. Right now Huckberry has an excellent 50% off sale on the Nomad Pant, putting them at just $48. Admittedly, the sizing is all over the place — but if you’re not choosy about color, you’ll find at least one style that’ll fit. Note: Some like-minded shorts from Proof are also on sale, albeit at a smaller 20% off.
