15 Pant Styles EVERY Man Needs (ULTIMATE Trouser Type Tutorial) | Commuters Chinos Khakis Joggers


15 Types of Pants Every Man Needs To Know
[0:00:00] So, which one is correct, trousers or pants? The answer, it depends on which side of the
Atlantic you’re on. Maybe we should ask the Chinese, they were
the ones that invented them back in 13th century BC. In any case, whether you call them slacks,
trousers, or pants, today’s video, we’re talking about the fifteen types that every
man needs to know about, so that you can build your interchangeable wardrobe. [Music]
First up, we’ve got the dreaded cargo pants and I say that with a love because I wore
cargo pants for years. Made from cotton oftentimes made with the
loose fit, cargo pants are casual. They have their purpose they have their place. I think a man should own a pair, but be careful
when you wear them, they are ultra casual. Next up, we’ve got drawstring pants. And, as the name implies, they’re identified
because of the drawstring. This allows you to cinch the waist. So, if you got a 30-inch waist or a 40-inch
waist, you can probably get away with the same pair of trousers. Made from linen, made from cotton, made from
synthetic materials, these trousers are going to be casual because of the loose fit. Next up, we’ve got Jorts. No, I’m not going there. Sorry. Next up, we’ve got pajama pants. Very similar to drawstring trousers except
in the choice of material. So, they’re going to use brighter colors
more flamboyant patterns. We’re going to see flannels, we’re going
to see nap surfaces, we’re going to see the use of wool to insulate heat. Next up, we’ve got sweat pants, we’ve
got track suit pants, and we have joggers. So, sweat pants are historically the oldest
style and these are going to have a very loose fit or going to have a drawstring waist or
an elastic waist may have the pockets. Next, we’ve got the track suit pants. Now, track suit pants going to use oftentimes
a synthetic material, going to have a very tight weave, and going to be something that’s
going to fit overall loosely although some can fit tighter. And what sets them apart is going to be a
stripe of color going down the side of the leg. Next up, we’ve got joggers, a modern take
on sweatpants. Up at the top near waist what we’re going
to find, again, they’re going to have an elastic or a drawstring oftentimes are going
to have pockets especially with the zipper so that you can keep something secured. But, as we go down the leg line that we see
the big difference. Joggers are going to fit much closer to the
legs and give you a streamlined look. Next up, we’ve got commuter pants, an interesting
hybrid between sport pants and dress slacks. So, when you’re looking a good pair of commuter
pants, they’re going to look like regular dress slacks. You’re going to say, you know what? I can probably wear this with a sports jacket
wear it with a nice shirt. But then, you start to touch it you look at
the details and you realize it’s made from a stretch fabric. It’s going to have maybe anti-wick properties
which these do, all of a sudden, you go back look at the pockets, you realize it’s got
zippers pockets. You see small style details which you wouldn’t
see on dress slacks and things like this I love in modern trousers. These commuter pants right here and the ones
I’m wearing which I’ll show you in a second are brought to you by Rhone, the paid sponsor
of today’s video. And I absolutely love this company. All of Rhone’s clothing is specifically
designed for the gym, for work, and for play. So, as you can see I’m wearing Rhone’s
commuter pant and let’s first talk about the fit. So, sizing I think it’s true to size, just
a really nice fit. But, let’s talk about the hemming. So, Rhone will give you free online hemming,
so you could actually determine exactly what you want that length to be. And let’s talk about the fabrics. So, first off, Rhone spends a lot of money
four times more than most big box sportswear brands on their fabrics and you can tell when
you put this on, they’ve got a nice stretch to them makes them incredibly comfortable. Now, another piece of gear they sent me that
I absolutely love is the Reign long sleeve shirt. And what I really love is the raglan sleeve. So, basically right here there’s no seam
on the edge they’ve got it sewn right in here. This actually makes it easier for the arm
to rotate when you’re working out when you’re staying active and I can tell you the drape
the feel of this fabric is really, really nice. Free shipping, free returns. Guys, I’m linking to Rhone down in the description
with the best discount code and deal you’re going to find out there. Right now, they’re having their best sale. They only do this a couple of times a year. Go check them out, guys. Okay. So now, let’s talk about the big debate
out there and that is what is the difference between chinos and khakis. And the easiest way to spot the difference
between the two is not the color is actually going to be the stitching. So, on khakis, you can see the stitching. On chinos, they’re a little bit dressier
and you’re not – they basically do a better job of hiding the stitching. When I’m looking at a pair of chinos, what
I’m looking for is these are going to come in a wider variety of colors, they’re going
to be dressier in general. Khakis, what we’re going to see is oftentimes
a looser fit. Khakis in general are going to be more casual. Next up, we’ve got our beloved denim jeans
and we love this because it’s so interchangeable. You can dress them up, you can dress them
down, and they are relatively inexpensive. Made from cotton, they are found across the
world and it’s just something that simply works in a man’s wardrobe. This pair right here non-distressed in a dark
indigo, I think every man should have in his wardrobe. When you start going with lighter colors,
you got to be careful, much more casual. If you add distress to it, of course much
more casual. Next up, we’ve got odd trousers and we got
suit trousers. Now, I want to explain the difference because
this pair of trousers right here could actually fit either depending on one thing. Does it have a jacket made from the same material
that it’s made to go with? If it does, it is a suit. [0:05:04]
So, an odd pair of trousers are trousers that you can buy out there separately from a jacket
and they don’t have a matching jacket, therefore they can worn with a sports jacket with a
blazer jacket, something made from a different material or even just a dress shirt or a casual
button-down. Next up, we’ve got corduroy trousers also
called cords. Very distinctive because of the wale. Wales are going to be the way the cotton is
sewn right here and it’s going to be either seven wales per inch or eleven wales per inch. This one right here, eleven wales an inch
which is going to make it a little bit dressier, but we’re talking very small differences
here. But, another thing to note with corduroy is
they can be dressed up I think even better than jeans. This one right here could be worn with a sports
jacket or even a blazer. Next up, we’ve got moleskin trousers and
cavalry twill. So, let’s talk first about moleskin. Moleskin is a particular type of fabric made
for trousers. Actually, pretty tough wearing and, yes, when
you touch it it feels soft and has a nap surface. But, cavalry twill, this one right here is
actually made to be worn with a blazer. Now, a lot of people avoid this because it
actually has a synthetic type of feel to it, but it can be worn in dressy occasions especially
with a navy blazer. And, up next, we’ve got gray flannels. Perhaps I think the most underutilized trousers
out there. Gray flannels are great for matching any type
of sports jacket. Their nap surface sets them apart from any
type of dress slacks out there. Made from a worsted wool and I think should
be in every man’s wardrobe whether in a medium light gray or a dark charcoal gray. All right, gentlemen. So, we’ve got trousers covered, now, it’s
about finding the perfect shirt. Check out this checklist I’ve got for you
right here. I’m linking to it down in the description. This video, I go over thirty items that you
need to know about whenever you’re going out there and buying the perfect shirt. And, guys, don’t forget, go check out Rhone. Check out these commuter pants. I absolutely love when a company comes in
and create something that can be worn in a wide variety of situations. You guys now I’m all about fit, fabric,
and function. Check them out, I’m linking to them down
in the description. Great pants I meant or great slacks or whatever
you want to call them, commuter slacks, commuter trousers, commuter pants. What do you think? Let me know in the comments, guys, what they
should be called. That’s it, guys. Take care. I’ll see you in the next video. [0:07:11] End of Audio

  1. Antonnio what do you think of tighter pants? Because I wear them a lot, and that might also be because they seem to be extremely popular in the netherlands (where I live) and even some chinos and such are being made a lot tighter , especially around the calves. I do like the natural shape of my legs and somtime feel that looser pants really take away from your body shape.

  2. IMO skinny jeans look terrible on a guy.
    Whenever i see one wear those i think 'what is wrong with you?'
    Don't EVER wear them … EVER

  3. Great vid! Your Sports Coat is absolutely fantastic, from the color to material. What’s the brand? I’ve been wanting a green and this pushed me over the edge. The Rhone is a river in the EU, interesting name to choose. Makes me wonder if there are any links to the owners. As usual, great content! I’m a dedicated Lululemon (previous GF converted me) ABC fan, but if I weren’t, for this sale, I’d probably consider taking the plunge.

  4. I wear straight fit pants but sometimes they slip down..i have to keep tightening up my belt & pull up my pants..i have to find a certain kind of belt that holds the pants up correctly

  5. Thank you Antonio. Finally an informative video on pants. Like many, I did not know the difference between Chinos and Khakis. Oh and guys don't where pajama pants out. Nothing looks more ridiculous in my opinion, then a guy walking into a bar wearing pajama pants. Leave them home.

  6. Men wear Trousers, women wear pants or slacks. …. that's the way my Drill Instructor put it to us about a 100 years ago lol. But they really confused me when they called the Alpha and Blues jacket a Blouse ! Women wear "blouses", and men wear "shirts"… but then do you say, yes my wife wears the "pants" in the family because I wear the "trousers" in the family ! Curious why everyone beats up on the cargo "trousers" ? Dickies, Carhartt, even Wrangler. Make them in a variety of colors and fabric weights. Normally the "regular" size /cut, is not a baggy or oversized wide leg. When ironed and creased and worn with a pair of Chukka boots, Chelsea boots and a button down shirt. Aside from the side pocket (s), they look and even fit like Kakhis, or Chinos. In many cases even better. Can be worn with a sport coat, a polo shirt, and even a casual dress shoe…? So I am curious why they are so beat up on ? Yet grown men try to wear women's pants i.e. "skinny jeans", and or "distressed" jeans that are badly faded and or have holes in them ? Something is wrong with that. And for the love of pete…don't wear your jammies pants out in public, and please pull up your pants. .. So long live, "cargo and carpenter" pants, dark Blue jeans, and good trousers. That fit the WAIST, and length, and are ironed and creased and not skin tight !!! Or full of holes!!!

  7. Btw, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family and staff. Thank you for producing the quality videos and product information you do. It is always professional and filled with good information. I enjoy how you keep things in style and classic, and yet you still meet the modern trends and style. So us "older generation" are covered, and the "younger generation". Yet you manage to keep both sides professional and classic all in good taste. So, thank you and Happy Thanksgiving to you and all of yours and the RMRS staff.

  8. In Europe jorts are considered stylish. Most of the brands have their own version of them and a lot of people wear them. It's pretty common and most people i know own a least one pair. I don't know why the americans hate them tbh

  9. Antonio Love these kinds of videos
    – Simple
    – Short
    – To the point
    – Information one can relate to..
    Awesome 😁😎

  10. I had never given much thought to so many different types of pants, slacks, etc. Wow! That was a heck of a tutorial!

  11. Love you giving the average guy style points, however you have nothing for real bespoke type guys, furthermore your hyping that stuff on your channels is shameless. You can only look but so good on the cheap. One can't reupholster cheap furniture, nor can one effectively tailor cheap clothing.

  12. I bought a few chinos second hand and they are extremely comfortable. I love them. Thanks for the heads up on the difference between chinos and khaki because I can confidently say I have chinos.

  13. Maybe Antonio is not as funny as Aaron and Jose but his videos are so damn informative ! This channel is full of serious shit 😉 GREAT JOB ! I will also repeat myself : that intro is the best ! When we see that "military heritage" you know there is serious content coming soon 😀
    By the way I used to wear only denim jeans but thanks to fashion influencers I bought some chinos (That I managed to pull off in a wedding :D) and some joggers 🙂

  14. Thanks for explaining chinos and slacks! I always was curious about the difference. The only thing I wish you would comment on is when is it better to have a tapered leg and when not.

  15. You keep blowing me away with the knowledge you provide of men's fashion. I definitely come to this channel when Im looking for style answers. So many other channels are just talking about hacks, hacks and more hacks. Antonio is the man! Thank you

  16. Hey Antonio, thanks for the informative video. I have to admit, pants are my most neglected part of wardrobe. I"m realizing I need to deal with it now.
    Pants – I call them Hose in German.

  17. Well, I bought a pair of pants for a specific event; it was a periwinkle blue pair of what I've been calling Dress Chinos but I have no idea what they're really called. That day I paired them with a white and sky blue striped polo, clubmaster sunglasses, tan oxfords, a nice looking watch on one hand and artisanal jewellery on the other.

    Though, after that event, I haven't found much use for them. They've started really wrinkling, they wrinkle faster than I can iron; they also tend to look like I'm wearing pyjama pants. What would you pair with them, Antonio?

  18. I miss the lack of available cargo pants. Don't think I've ever run into cavalry pants or grey flannel pants. I probably avoid them without thinking.

  19. Jorts, no im not going there. Hahahhaahha
    I was born in 83, and i got stuck in the 90 fashion and used to skate, and little by little i've been chaging my appearance. Im comfortable with relaxed fit in jeans but ive been chaging to not so relaxed and not so tight. Some tennis shoes that i like dont go well with relaxed jeans. In other words i dont like feeling like cholo, eseee.

  20. Hey Antonio, just wanted to say thank you for such superb content! This has been a real help for me as I have spent the last several years living and working in the tropics wearing predominately light cotton or linen shirts with shorts, I am now returning to Europe to take up a new job and the advice I have found on your channel has been invaluable! I have two months to turn make the transition from beachfront professional to a suited man of business in Europe and without your inspiration I would be stumbling around in the dark! Looking forward to the next video! JS

  21. I actually laughed out loud at the jorts dismissal, my sister had to ask what was so funny 😂😂😂

    Anyways, this channel is a godsend. I'm a little late to the party but I've just been watching these videos non-stop to get ideas for an imminent, substantial wardrobe update.

    Thanks for the great content! Also, don't know if anyone's told you before but you remind me of the actor Tim Olyphant—well-spoken and super stylish!

    Greetings from NY!

    edit: Also, I'd love to see you do a video on Jay Wright's suit game—I think he's the best-dressed coach in all of sports!

  22. Hey Antonio, I noticed you have made videos on the outfits of TV characters, such as, Harvey Specter, Kingsman etc. I wondered if you could do a video on the style of the main characters in Mad Men. Though the style is 1960s, it is still quite fashionable, especially John Slattery who plays Roger Sterling.

  23. Hey, Antonio I need some help I have a casual date tomorrow and I'm thinking about wearing a black jeans, a white t shirt, medium wash denim jacket from Levi's and a pair of white leather sneakers will that work?

  24. Mr antonio black cap toe boot or brown cap toe boot which is better with jeans and chinos ? I got good deal with black but brown costly but same material what do you think.

  25. You know? There are people like me from Singapore/Malaysia is watching your video to learn style! And bravo, your video has successfully across so many further countries 🙂 cheers:)

  26. Sir this is from my mother's gmail account. Sir i want you to make a video on sweater vest and types of it. Because it's very confusing work in India.

  27. Here in England it's definitely 'trousers'. Pants are something you wear underneath them! But I suppose it comes from the French word 'pantalons', which means trousers, so call them what you like!

  28. I just turned 16 and to be really honest with you I've been getting a lot of comments about my style from high-schoolers.

  29. I wear whatever I want because I give approximately 2 sh*ts what anyone else thinks. I learned that early on in life when I wore Cross Colours and got called "wigger" and threatened almost every day. Yes, I'm a White man who's experienced racism! lol

  30. I'm glad you didn't show the slim fit office trousers. Some men wear them with low socks and dress shoes. So, basically they are wearing tight trousers, you can see their ankles, you can't see the socks, and they wear them with dress shoes; what a horrible combination to wear. They look like they are in between wardrobe changes.

  31. Hi Anthony
    Is PUBLIC REC Pants best or RHONE Pants.. Quality, and long lasting, point of view. Without colour faded..Please advise me..

  32. Hi Antonio, love your videos! I have a questions regarding trousers. I am getting a bespoke suit done soon and I wonder if it is alright not to have back pockets on the trousers.

    I reckon, since I don't use them, maybe I could make do without them.
