Style GuideThe Only Work Pants I’d Ever Wear
Weekday Warriors, a collection of men’s pants from New York-based Bonobos, are perfect for days when dark jeans won't cut it but a suit's too stuffy.
Weekends are easy: no meetings, no timesheets, no dress code. But then the dreaded workweek rolls around, and we all curse the fact that there’s no such thing as casual Mondays.
That’s when Weekday Warriors come to my rescue. The collection of five pants expertly designed by Bonobos are among the best fitting and most comfortable out there. They look sharp at work, but feel so relaxed that I actually look forward to pulling them on.
In short, Weekday Warriors are a happy medium between causal chinos and dress pants. The cotton finish feels smooth and has a slight sheen. The pants come in two fits—straight leg and slim straight—and five basic colors, from Monday Blues to Friday Greys. Weekday Warriors were designed to pair well with the Daily Grind line of button-down, wrinkle-free work shirts from Bonobos, which makes getting dressed for work a snap--even if you don't have the slightest eye for style. As an added bonus, no-iron fabric means these pants will straighten themselves out after a long day at your desk. In fact, Weekday Warriors perform so well that they may replace some of my weekend pants as well.
At $98 a pop, Weekday Warriors are an investment, but a quality one. The retailer has “guideshops” in Boston, Chicago, New York, and Palo Alto with more cities coming soon. When you order online, shipping and returns are both free.
