Fit and mobility are easy to get right with athletic shorts but hard to get right with athletic pants, so most men tend to avoid the category altogether rather than risk looking like an extra in White Men Can't Jump. But you shouldn't. Here are five options that get it completely right from both a performance and style perspective:
The newly released Interval Pant from Ten Thousand features a skinny, slim fit that's sure to flatter our most athletic readers. It's overflowing with smart details, too, like an innovative pocket system specially engineered for secure, no-bounce storage of your everyday carry.
If you have to sneak your runs in at night or in the morning, the Momentum Pant from Myles is a great move as it's kitted with reflective details that keep you visible in low light but are nearly undetectable otherwise. The fit is also dialed and the quality—it comes from the same team behind Taylor Stitch, one of our favorite brands—is second to none.
New York City-based athleticwear label JACQUES delivers a stellar nylon warmup pant with four-way stretch and enough "tailoring" to make it appropriate for both the golf course and the tennis court. Its versatility is endless.
This slim and stylish sweatpant from OLIVERS might look like a John Elliott design at first glance but they're secretly packed with tons of training technology, like odor resistance, water repellency, and temperature regulating properties. "We wanted a sweatpant built for performance and comfort," says the brand. "These are a true dual-threat ready for early mornings and lazy Sundays alike."
