The Best Work Pants for Men That Are Both Sturdy and Stylish

You’ve got slim denim, you’ve got classic chinos, you’ve got cozy sweats … but do you have a pair of the best men’s work pants (also known as chore pants)? If not, take care of that today. Chore pants and work pants serve a dual purpose, especially in fall and winter. Often made with materials like cotton canvas, the best men’s chore pants work well as rugged outdoor pants because they’re often reinforced in key areas like the knees (or crotch) for mobility and durability. Yet, rich colors and textured materials also make them an off-duty favorite, fit for wearing to your favorite bar or brewery with a chambray shirt and rugged leather boots or high-top sneakers. 

Work pants aren’t just for the outdoorsman, but if that happens to be you? All the better.
