It’s hard to find a good pair of pants. While pants are a foundational item in any man’s wardrobe, it seems that good options are harder and harder to come by. If travel often for work or pleasure, you’ll want to have a closet full of comfortable, versatile pants. We’d like to highlight what it is that makes a great pair of men’s travel pants, and why V1946 is the right place to find exactly what you need.
Important Features for Great Travel Pants
There is no such thing as the perfect pair of pants – although we would argue that some of our models come close. The key when shopping for travel pants is to pick out styles that include the various features you find important while on the go. This will vary somewhat from person to person, although there are some key features to watch for that nearly everyone will find helpful.
An Appropriate Look
The right look for your travels will depend both on where you are going and what you are going to be doing. Traveling for business? You may not need to wear a suit, but something that looks sharp and is presentable in an office setting will be required. Our Classic Vintage Twill pants fit that bill nicely. These pants come in a range of colors including understated options like Stone and Khaki, as well as bolder choices such as Blueberry and Charleston Brick. Whether paired with a button-down shirt or a polo shirt, you’ll always look the part of a business traveler.
One of the necessities of travel is the need to keep things on you while going from place to place. If you carry a bag, you may be able to put some of your items in there, but you’ll still want to have a few important things closer at hand like keys, money, identification, and your phone. So, good pockets are a must on any pair of travel pants. Consider looking for pants that have at least one pocket that can be closed securely, either with a zipper or with a button. If you are looking for casual, comfortable pants to travel in, our Athletic Pants have three zippered pockets to use, giving you plenty of space for your most important items. In addition to so much secure storage, these pants also feature a comfortable blend material of 88% polyester and 12% spandex.
This one is easy to overlook, but it’s just as important as our other points. You never quite know what you’ll encounter while traveling, so it’s best to have pants that are ready for a bit of adventure. Something like our 5 Pocket Stretch Twill Pants would be a good pick, as they won’t let you down even when the days are long and rest is hard to come by. By ordering from a reliable company like V1946, you can be sure you’re getting a durable garment that can be used for many trips to come.
Are these the only features you should consider for your travel pants? Of course not – but they are a great place to start. Keep these three features in mind while adding in any other points that you feel are important to have in your next pair of pants.
Make a Packing Plan
You have limited space when going on a trip, so each garment that you add to your suitcase or bag needs to earn its spot. With this in mind, try to pack pants that you can use in different applications throughout your journey. You don’t want to pack pants or other garments that you’ll only wear once.
As an example, consider our Stretch Twill Flat Front pants. These would work beautifully on the links for a golf vacation, but they would also be appropriate for wearing out to dinner after the sun has gone down and the clubs have been put away for the day. Instead of changing your attire between golf and dinner, or before other activities out on the town, you can stick with one pair of pants and look great the whole time.
