I work in a fairly conservative industry, but I've noticed that my colleagues (and bosses) men's wear is becoming more casual. Until now, I've generally worn suits.

I'm now looking to buy some pants that are more comfortable than the suit pants I currently have. Formal pants that imitate suit pants would be ideal, but formal chinos could work too. I'm looking for something more comfortable. Something stretchy.

For reference, I started wearing jeans that are stretchy enough for me to do squats in and the freedom of movement is amazing. Does the same thing exist for dress pants/chinos? I've looked but haven't found much.

Betabrand caters to third but appears to be out of stock in anything in my size. I've been looking at Ministry of Supply, Proof, Outlierand Bonobos. Can anyone steer me right?
Thanks in advance!

I only wear Ministry of Supply these days. Kinetic and Velocity suit pants. Once you wear them, you'll never go back to traditional wool pants.

You can try wearing sweatpants, but it seems to me that they are only relevant in the gym. I know that many ranchers prefer to wear jeans. There are many varieties of jeans, different patterns and different fabric compositions. For example, cowboy jeans are well described in this article https://stylejeanswear.com/what-is-cowboy-cut-jeans/ . This is quite a universal design that fits any figure, and besides, they are convenient enough if you need to move a lot at work.

Can be a little pricey, but Meyer out of Germany makes some traveler / chino etc type pants that can have a lot of stretch.
