If you want a pair of pants that will stay comfortable no matter how your body changes or if you just want to combine casual comfort with a more refined look, you may want to keep an eye on some of the best pairs of elastic waist pants. You can find these in both super casual looks and in some of the most fashionable items on the market. In what follows, you'll learn about the best elastic waist pants for men.
Forward, a high end clothing site spinoff of Revolve Clothing, sells the 3.1 Phillip Lim Elastic Cuff Drainpip Pant in Multi. These luxurious casual pants are made of a 60% cotton and 40% wool blend on the exterior and have a 100% rayon lining. These have a hook and bar closure, side slit pockets and an elastic hemline and waist. The pants look a bit like fancy sweatpants but are meant to be worn with other high end items in more fashionable environments. Those sell for $425, while the ASOS Distressed Cord pants sell for about $77. Those have a low rise waist, wide extended belt loops and whispering and gusset seaming on the crotch. The pants also have a tapered leg with an elastic hem, two patch pockets on the rear and an overall distressed finish. SSENSE, a high end Canadian clothing store, carries the T by Alexander Wang Brushed Lounge Pants, which go for $175. These straight leg pants come in black and have a double drawstring at the elastic waist, seam hip pockets and a panel at the rise. They're made of a 64% polyester, 33% rayon and 3% elastane blend and are a bit more casual than the 3.1 Phillip Lim pants mentioned above. Lastly, for a solid semiformal look, get the BOSS Black Sports Pants, which go for $95 at Saks Fifth Avenue. These pants have zippered pockets, an elastic waistband and come in black or grey. They also feature a small logo embroidery on the side and come in a 52% cotton and 48% polyester blend.
