Best-Linen-Pants

Whether we like it or not, we can’t change the fact that the warmer months with their incredibly high temps and absurd humidity percentages are here to stay. While that means most of us are going to be wearing shorts for the summer, there are still plenty of occasions that call for a proper pair of pants. In those situations, you’ll find us wearing linen pants because they’re the best way to look proper while staying comfortable. These are the best linen pants for men for any budget.

HM-Linen-Blend-Joggers

H&M Linen-Blend Joggers

It took some adjustment to get used to the idea of joggers, but that was an easy hurdle to cross with this particular linen/cotton blend from H&M. Available in five different stalwart colors (khaki green, tan, black, navy, and gray), these drawstring waistband pants with diagonal side pockets, welt back pockets, and a slightly relaxed cut have all the space you need to carry all your stuff, all day, without being uncomfortable–while still being stylish enough to wear to a beach wedding if you have a sportcoat to match. Buy: $25



Amazon-Essentials-Men-Slim-Fit-Flat-Front-Linen-Pant-

Amazon Essentials Men’s Slim-Fit Flat-Front Linen Pant

If you don’t care about name brands, corporate shilling, and all things Amazon, this is actually a solid linen pant. Sure, they bear the Amazon name and are imported from far off lands we’re unaware of–and we’re not super on-board with that for the record–but the 55% linen and 45% rayon construction with fitted thigh, tapered leg, and a silhouette that sits just below the waist results is a cool, lightweight pant regardless of what you’re pairing it with. Buy: $25

Nordstrom Linen/Cotton Blend Drawstring Pant

If you want the comfort of a pair of sweatpants whilst looking like you’re wearing a proper pair of trousers, you won’t find better than these men’s linen pants. This Nordstrom Linen / Cotton Blend Drawstring Pant is made with a 54% linen, 44% cotton and 2% spandex construction to be the perfect, endlessly wearable addition to your Summer wardrobe without sacrificing on comfort or style. Even better, these true-to-size, mid-rise pants with an elastic / drawstring waist are machine washable and available in four different colorways. Buy: $42

Banana Republic Linen-Blend Mason E-Waist Athletic-Fit Pant

Say what you will about the Banana Republic / Old Navy / GAP setup, but that kind of buying/designing power results in all three brands being able to develop and release well-made and stylish pieces like the Banana Republic Linen-Blend Mason E-Waist Athletic-Fit Pant you see here. Whether it’s date night, a summer concert or a beach outing, these 55% linen and 45% cotton (machine washable no-less!) pants check all the boxes. Even better, you can get a pair with an extra 50% at checkout during most Banana Republic sales. Buy: $49




Dandy Del Mar Brisa Linen Pant

Nobody does leisure like Dandy Del Mar. The swimwear and loungewear brand has cornered the market on poolside cool with a line of French terry apparel, Pablo Picasso-approved bathing suits, and, of course, breezy linens. The Brisa Linen Pant makes high-class style comfortable with an elastic waist and straight leg fit. Plus the 55% linen 45% cotton blend will keep you cool on hot summer nights. And the vintage ivory colorway, along with the matching linen top, makes for Miami Vice-levels of cool. Buy: $99




J.Crew-Garment-Dyed-Cotton-Linen-Chino-Suit-Pant

J.Crew Garment-Dyed Cotton-Linen Chino Suit Pant

While J.Crew won’t publicize the exact blend of linen / cotton that goes into the construction of the J.Crew Garment-Dyed Cotton-Linen Chino Suit Pant, we can confirm that it’s significantly airier and more breathable than the traditional suiting version and cut in a way that makes it stylish while still being wearable everyday. If you need pants to wear during the warmer months, pick these up in the khaki, green and navy options because they won’t let you down whether you’re wearing them to meetings, on dates or for fancy formal functions.
