There may be some debate as to exactly what color khaki is, but there’s certainly no shortage of great khaki pants for men who possess superior style. Every guy needs at least one good pair of trousers in this rich, neutral hue, and whether they’re on the tan side or they lean more toward military green, khaki pants look great with most anything in your wardrobe. These five pairs are supremely chic. Make them yours, and they’ll take you from work to weekend!
The perfect everyday-chic pair, the Duncan pant is as basic as jeans, but better. Casual, wearable 100 percent cotton and classic five-pocket styling make these feel familiar when denim is out of the question. While one color choice, Scout, appeals with a medium-deep green/brown, Ochre/Khaki has the potential to add a pop of orangey-tan to your outfit. Available in sizes 30 to 40, with a straight leg that flatters virtually everyone. Tahari Duncans normally retail for $198.00, but you can get yours at Couture.Zappos.com for much less.
Go right from the office to an important dinner in this dressy-chic pair from Hugo Boss. The flat front is anything but fussy, and their fine, lightweight wool is suitable for all seasons. The long, lean line of these pants might make you want a pair in each of the six available colors, but Boss’ subdued Beige/Khaki is the one to look for if you’re tired of tan and ready to go beyond gray. Find them in sizes 30 to 40, for $175.00 at Nordstrom.com.
