Recently started moving away from tan Khakis/Chinos to "casual" dress pants. Even with the "entry-level" dress pants in a polyester or poly/Rayon blend I find these more comfortable (temperature and feel) than Khakis. I've started with the following: Van Heusen slim fit grey travel Kenneth Cole slim fit grey Both fit well and the material seems to have a higher quality finish (compared to shiny polyester used in athletic wear). The Van Heusens seem to have a more microfiber look. We'll see how they hold up after time. My question is what would be the next step up to stay ~$100 or under (retail price)? I work in an office but also in a production environment (dust, etc.) for a portion of the day, so something I can take home and wash is preferred. So although wool pants may be true dress pants, I don't think they would be practical.
