    Light Grey Dress Pants



    Hey guys, thought I'd get a Dappered opinion. I'm looking for a pair of light grey dress pants that are also affordable. What are your reccommendations? Preferably <$50.

    I bought a couple pairs of these for $33 each on sale.

    They are $80 normally, $56 regularly on sale (30% off), and $33 when you can catch an insane sale.

      I have a version of those pants, in charcoal, as part of a suit - quite nice, esp at sale prices.


      The only downside to them, for me, is that they're dry clean only.

        If you're near NYC, the tasmanian wool dress pants at Uniqlo for $50 are also awesome. One of my favorite fitting pair of pants.

          Oh do I wish I was near NYC! My options are significantly limited here in northern Indiana. How is the fit on those LE pants? I see they're listed as regular fit, I usually buy straight or slim cuts.

            The fit is okay. I have them in charcoal grey, bought them for $56 (I couldn't imagine when they'd drop to 30 and have them in a 33" waist!). They're a straight fit, they definitely don't feel baggy to me, but I've got bigger thighs some of the guys here. Not skinny with an 8" opening but I would say a good fit. My biggest issue is the rise on them. It's a bit high and I can't/don't wear pants that high. I think that may be what is contributing to the side pockets flaring out a bit (can somebody correct me on this if I'm wrong?).


            I'm tempted to get the light grey but the flaring thing is annoying. If you wear your pants closer to your natural waist then I think these will be good to try. Free returns to a Sears near you

                @zerostyle - Can you give us an idea of what the uniqlo fit compares to? Is it slim fitting? Similar to jcrew urban slim? Thanks!

                  redsubway - I would look for something that's 97-100% wool and is slim-fitting off the rack, at least for your frame. If you want to keep it under $50, you really don't have any room to get the pants tapered...perhaps only hemmed for ~$15 if you find something that is close.


                  For brick & mortar stores, there are a lot of options, but many of them are cotton or poly blends that won't have the year-round staying power of wool. Express, for instance, has a lot of options, but only a handful that are 97% wool, and you would need to stack coupons to get their pants for that price.


                  BR, J. Crew...lots of casual chinos, but not a lot of dress pants outside of their suiting selection which is not going to be $50. LE on sale, Bonobos with codes, and thrifting are good routes to take.

                    You can look on Ebay too. I got a great pair of slim fitting, navy wool BR pants (made by some italian mill) for around 30 recently. Perfect condition.

                      The Lands End pants I linked are their "tailored fit" version. They are slim enough in the legs and seat for me. My biggest complaint, like LosRockets mentioned, is that the rise is a bit higher than most modern pants. (They aren't "high" per se, but just not low rise like most new dress pants).


                      I only have one pair of old Jcrew chinos to compare to (traditional fit), and I'd say they run just a slightly bit bigger and have a higher rise.


                      If you guys want measurements on the various pants let me know and I'll help you out. I just have no idea where/how to measure pants.

                        Thanks for the heads up on the LE pants. The fact that they come hemmed to your specs is a time saver.

                          Express seems to have sales / clearance on select dress items from time to time. I usually swing in from time to time to just check out whats on the clearance racks.


                          Also mentioned Lands End pants are wonderful. I own several casual chinos and they fit great and the quality is great for the price.

                            Thanks for the help everyone! I'll wait on a sale for the LE pants, I think I'll be pleased. I tend to like a slightly higher rise anyway.

                              I am not sure if these are dressy enough for you, but they work very well in a business casusal enviroment. I love my pair.
