    Favorite linen pants?



    I've been through one heat wave already here in NYC, and even my lightweight cotton pants felt too heavy.


    So I'm in the market for a pair of casual linen or linen/blend pants. Looking for the happy median between slim fit and MC Hammer pants.


    Any suggestions out there?

    JCrew bedford cotton/linen blend. They come in almond (light khaki) and a light grey color.


    I also bet the Bonobos breezeways are nice but I haven't tried them yet.

      Just be careful....contrary to popular belief, linen does not always breathe better than cotton. If you get thin linen resort pants, they will breathe very easily; but the big trend now in trousers is the wrinkle resistant linen pants, which are much more suitable for work; but, have more substance to them. I wear a couple of JAB linen trousers, and I like them a lot (the linen products at JAB are some of their best); but, they are more of a classic fit and are more dense than others.

      The best quality, breathable linen is Italian...of course, it is also pricey...you can generally find a good deal on some at Sierra Trading Post, though.....

        The Silentist recommends some cotton/linen ones by Land's End. Worth reading.

          I picked up a pair of J.Crew's urban slim fit pants in linen when they were on sale + 30% off a while back. They fit great and have been very comfortable - care is very easy, I just wash them on delicate (like I do most of my clothes) and hang them to try. The linen is high quality and has a slightly more refined weave than most other linen products I've owned. Plus they are navy so they don't scream "I AM LINEN AND IT IS HOT OUT!"

            I have a pair of the Bedford dress pants and really like them.

              Another vote for the JCrew Factory Bedford pants here.
