Guys don’t realize how important a pair of grey trousers are to their wardrobe. They can go with anything and show a little sophistication because you have stepped away from those khakis. They’re especially key in the fall, because they can be worn more often than in the summer. Once it starts getting cold, a sturdy pair can pass as a relatively casual trouser if you pair them with a rugby and loafers. You’re going to want something that is trim and hits right at, or right before depending on how much you like Thom Browne, your shoes. J. Crew makes a great pair that are hefty enough for the fall and winter, but still very wearable in the spring and summer. They are a deeper grey, which we suggest if these are your first pair of dressier trousers. You can get them at J. Crew for $185, which may seem like a lot for the college students out there, but be sure that you’ll be able to wear these for years and years so long as you take care of them.
