6 types of pants every guy must own

After reading the latest and few back issues of GQ Magazine, I realized how complicated it is for guys to look good and fashionable at the same time. Just like women, we guys also feel the need of looking stylish and good all the time (we're in the 21st century people!). More and more guys are becoming curious on what clothes or personal style to get into, in fact the sales and growth of menswear increased a lot and has outpaced the womenswear industry and expected to bring in a staggering amount of $40 Billion in sales by 2019. And your sir, got no excuse to deck yourself in boring clothes.

I received a few questions from my readers asking about pants, and which one to get and how would they pair it with other pieces in their wardrobe. I remember few years ago, buying types of jeans that are just for one-time use only, and after that you're not feeling of wearing it anymore because people might think that is the only pair of jeans you got and the design of it easily go out of style. And ofcourse I end up giving those kind of jeans to my friends and relatives. I was indeed not a smart buyer before. After learning my mistakes in buying pants, I compiled 7 pants essentials that every stylish guy must have in their life!. Considered these pants as part of your wardrobe essentials.

Black Denim

The most flexible type of pants ever created. Every time I travel or go to different places, I always pack my black denims with me. It can be paired with almost anything.

Distressed Jeans

If you want to achieve that effortless cool vibe in your overall look, well; wearing ripped jeans is the solution. We all know how hyped the street wear and street style culture right now, that's why wearing one won't hurt you. In order to pull off ripped jeans, just remember to keep it simple and effortless (less effort more style). Plus you can instantly create your own ripped jeans in just 5 minutes.

Tailored Trousers

Whenever I'm going to black tie events or even those casual-formal events, I always wear my tailored trousers. Tailored trousers are a worthy alternative to our much loved jeans and chinos. The time spent floating around the periphery of mainstream fashion has allowed them to mature and adapt, meaning that now, as they step into the limelight, they are more than ready to cement their timeless and classic status.

Sweatpants/Jogger pants

Through the years, our beloved sweatpants/jogger pants have evolved. This type of pants isn't just for working out anymore, as street wear brands and menswear designers reinvents this classic staple. More and more guys now are wearing jogger pants, and making it as part of their wardrobe staple. Personally, I can't live without it, whenever I feel lazy or want to feel comfortable without sacrificing style, I always wear my sweatpants and jogger pants, because it's just so freaking comfortable to wear!. Unlike sweatpants of the past, their primary utility isn't in jogging, but in showing off those expensive basketball shoes. 

Skinny Jeans

For many men, skinny jeans have long been a wardrobe essential – and it doesn’t look like that is going to change any time soon. But as fashions change so do our clothes, and the ones we keep have to adapt.

Light washes

For casual days and fun day at your favorite beach resort, light washes pants are perfect!. The freshest, boldest way to wear these is as part of an all-white ensemble. Not only is it a strong option for guys who want to look sharp without having to overthink their morning routine, but it also provides a clean and crisp canvas that sits perfectly against your post-holiday glow. 

One of the best (and worst) things about fashion is that it is constantly changing and evolving. Each season brings with it a raft of new trends and looks to add to our wardrobe, yet increasingly, old favourites – those items that are often considered timeless – are subtly reinvented or updated under the radar.
