The Best Casual Pants for Men

img_9410

My husband is going to get razzed so hard by his friends for this post! Ha! But it’s a really good post because I am sharing THE BEST CASUAL PANT on the market for men (according to the Lees anyway), so it’s worth it!  It’s practically impossible for my husband to find a  decent pair of pants that are “hip” (not old and fuddy duddy looking), not too tight, not too skinny, not too baggy, and that are soft and comfortable! That’s why when Nordstrom asked me to consider sharing a post on their menswear, I immediately agreed because I’ve been wanting to share this perfect pant!img_9402

Meet the Graduate by AG. The perfect casual pant for every occasion, especially all the upcoming holiday festivities! My husband doesn’t like his pants too tight in the legs and crotch. Can you blame him? I’d say he’s picky, but those requirements just seem smart and practical. Here’s the thing, although he doesn’t want his pants too tight, he doesn’t want them to be baggy either. We both went through that phase… it wasn’t pretty. We just looked frumpy and old. I promise, I have pictures to prove it. Well, that problem is solved because the AG’s have a stretch to them that makes them extremely comfortable, while still retaining their shape.

They are not jeans or slacks, which makes them even more versatile! They can be worn with a sport coat just as easily as they can be worn with a t-shirt!

img_9407Unlike the original AG Proteges that we first got hooked on after a nice sales associate at Nordstrom introduced them to us, the Graduate has a perfectly tapered leg. They’re not too tapered, but they’re not baggy and wide. They’re just right.

If you don’t believe me, just look at the reviews online! WOW! You can order them to the house for all the coming festivities, or you can wrap them up under the tree. It’s a no risk purchase since Nordstrom has free shipping and returns.

Oh, and the shirt he is wearing is fabulous, too! It’s a slimmer fit that isn’t too tight or too baggy. He’s wearing the Peter Millar ‘Nanoluxe’ Regular Fit Wrinkle Free Shirt in large. He usually wears an XL, but since this is a ‘regular fit’, the large kept the shirt from being baggy.

Oh, and do you remember these boots from the Nordstrom Anniversary Post? I won. What? I’m just sayin’.

    My husband loves these pants. They are very flattering. I’m going to buy the featured belt for a stocking stuffer! Really cute. What are your husband’s favorite socks? My husband’s socks don’t last long and not sure how to go about researching socks!

    The butt… the butt! We need to see how the butt looks!! How can you buy a pair of jeans without seeing how the butt looks first? Ha!
