We ask a lot of our pants these days. We're used to wearing a shirt and tossing it in the hamper at the end of a long day. But our pants? Ideally, we get a few wearings out of them before washing. You might change into a fresh shirt before going out for the night, but the pants? They'll likely stay put. A quality pair of chinos, for instance, should be able to keep up with the daily grind, can travel well and won't require too much maintenance. If you can find a pair that does all of that, and for a reasonable price? You've really scored.
Haggar, the nearly century-old American outfitter, basically invented the very pants we're envisioning. Founded in Dallas back in 1926, the brand has a long history of making pants that are formal yet functional. By the '70s, they were dominating the market as the number one selling pant in America. And when business casual painted the country in a sea of khaki, we are sure that most chinos sported a Haggar label. After all, that was the time the brand introduced 100% wrinkle-free cotton.
Now, after some significant research and development, Haggar has debuted their Iron Free Premium Khakis. A pair of pants with classic styling and a touch of stretch that are so comfortable, they can be worn all day and night, can survive multiple rounds in the washer/dryer, even a flight stuffed into a carry-on and still come out looking fresh. They're the kind of pants that can be worn multiple times without needing to be ironed or refreshed. In short, these are the ultimate commuter pants without looking too "athletic" or "tech-y." They're easy to wear but never leave you looking undone.
