Top 5 Men’s Pants of Summer

Here’s the deal, I know that I’m not the only man who has trouble figuring out what to wear on an 80+ degree night.  I am a jean/pant guy when hitting the town, for the mere fact of respecting dress codes and most importantly, what I feel best in.

Most of us carry over our heavy jeans/pants from winter into Summer. I’m not saying that it won’t work, but to be comfortable on the hottest Summer nights here are a few different style of pants that will keep you relaxed and cool.

Linen- Cubavera $58.00

Linen isn’t just for vacations anymore. It’s a light, stylish pant adorned in a variety of colors.

Cotton Tommy Hilfiger $58.00

Often referred to “soft khakis”, cotton is a great way to put together a bold style which you can dress up for work or play.

Poplin- Camo $120.13

This is a pant that requires hardly any maintenance. Forget the iron and ironing board, grab them from the dryer and throw em’ on. These slacks let your boys breathe (the material’s ventilation) which will keep you feeling fresh during the Summer’s humid nights. 

Khaki- Banana Republic Gavin Chino $59.50

Here is a semi-loose chino which is a great substitute for the suit during a summer event or to a formal dinner. Just because it might be a formal occasion, that doesn’t mean you cannot take a risk and think outside the box of implementing a bit of color and style, stand out!

Denim- 7 For All Man Kind A-Pocket $208.00

There is nothing wrong with wearing denim during the summer months. Make sure it is a relaxed fit that won’t cut of circulation to your legs. With denim it has to have style, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the pant has to be a form-fitting “skinny jean”. Let your legs breathe and your body temperature will stay regulated all night long.

Remember, Summer means to be colorful, I’m not saying go out and buy orange pants, but stray away from the “norm” conservative colors. Chicks dig it.

Doutzen Kroes in Sophie Theallet

Speaking of Sophie Theallet…

Another collaboration, another dollar well spent. Designer Sophie Theallet will be collaborating with The Limited to bring us some affordable threads. I personally couldn’t be happier. Sophie’s looks are gorgeous and I can only imagine what she’ll bring to the table for a brand like The Limited. The line will release in stores and online in November for the beginning of the holiday season.
