While some people hold the opinion that men have less clothing items they’d forget to say that in the perceived ‘less’ they actually have more in each. Probably if some men explore all their options, they’d dress as fashionable for occasions too!
So today, Trending Tuesday would be giving 5 out of the varieties of pants every man should own and how to rock each!
Cargo pants originally made for military have become a part of the fashion sector.
They are made with cotton and have multiple large pockets which could actually be it own signature and are mostly baggy.
You can dress cargo pants up slightly with a knit sweater, a lightweight shirt, and loafers or Chelsea boots.
Bring back the classics in a super suave pair of cords. Corduroy made the rounds in the ‘ 70s , and still offer a sleek alternative to regular trousers. The fabric is easy to recognise – strands of yarn are twisted or woven together. These pants are best suited to colder weather, as they will heat up and keep your legs toasty. If you’re ready to make an entrance and do the classic design proud, opt to style these bottoms with a button down, jumper or blazer. These also look fantastic in a casual setting , so why not rock them along with a T-shirt , loose sweatshirt and sneakers?
3.Men’s pajama pants
Pajama pants are similar to drawstring trousers, except in the choice of material.
They’ll use brighter colors, more flamboyant patterns, and fabrics like wool, flannel, and brushed cotton, with napped (fuzzy) surfaces for insulation.

Cut from heavyweight cotton, woven to create a surface comprising diagonal parallel ridges, twill is a traditional material that, if invested in, will give excellent cost-per-wear calculations thanks to its hardy nature.
Plus, every scuff on a pair of twill chinos tells a story – even if the only ‘work’ you end up doing in them is loafing about on Twitter. In twill the beleaguered chino also breaks out of the realm of ‘Ibiza lads on tour’ into an altogether more grown-up sense of place and tradition.
The style is still, strictly speaking, a casual trouser so wear them with an easy-going pair of shoes (such as anything with a contrast Vibram sole), a T-shirt or piece of knitwear and top with an overshirt or denim jacket for an effortlessly cool off-duty look.
Ankle swingers, as some want to call them, are here to stay – and with good reason. Allowing your ankles to breathe in summer while still giving airtime to your footwear in cooler months, cropped trousers are a great way to spice up what can be a tired formal outfit. Disclaimer: by cropped trousers, we mean shorter than your average, displaying a sliver of ankle or sock, not to be mistaken with pantaloons.
In addition to giving your footwear a platform to shine, a precise crop accentuates the line of your trews – because there’s nothing worse than puddling material at the bottom of your ankle. Getting the length right is crucial, though. Unless they fit perfectly off-the-peg, go to a tailor and take their advice, but if you’re feeling braver, anything up to three or four inches above the ankle is a safe bet.
Cropped trousers lend themselves well to both formal and off-duty settings, though you’re undoubtedly in safer territory with the former. Cropped chinos in a sand colour will work well with a simple white shirt, premium suede bomber and white sports-luxe trainers on the weekend. Meanwhile, for more formal occasions, black cropped trousers worn with a grey blazer, charcoal roll neck and oxblood dress shoes is ideal for a relaxed
