These pants used to be a bit more under the radar 3-4 years ago when they were originally labeled as Lulu’s ABC pants. But, like Lulu’s stock chart, the popularity of this pant has exploded in recent years as more people have realized that wearing traditional wool/cotton chinos is a thing of the past. It’s now truly possible to wear something that feels like sweatpants but looks like work pants.
Lulu offers them in basically every fit, length and color you can think of so sizing should not be an issue. The best part about these pants is that they still are ABC (anti-ball crushing). So even a skinnier fit still fits loose around the crotch area meaning you won’t be uncomfortable when you are sitting down. All of these come with belt loops and a zip fly. Furthermore, Lulu offers a complementary hemming service in their stores so don’t worry about getting the length perfect.
A lot of competitors have tried to copy these and claim they have come up with a better version, but we have yet to see it. $128 is far from inexpensive, but for something you will potential use everyday, it is well worth it. Buy 2-3 pairs of these in various colors and you’ll be set for the next 2-3 years, at least.
