Looking the part is as important as your performance when it comes to the office life, and that applies whether you’re commuting to work everyday or logging in to work from home in these strange times we live in. But too often work-acceptable clothing comes with the downside of not actually being that comfortable to wear day in and day out. Especially nowadays, when one biggest benefits of the WFH life is being able to indulge a bit more on creature comforts, having to wear uncomfortable clothing just to look right on a Zoom call seems a bit strange. That’s where Western Rise comes in, with their line of comfort-first, office-ready pants and joggers that can serve you well in these trying times while looking good enough that you can continue to wear them when we eventually go back to the office in person.
The first piece of clothing to consider is Western Rise’s AT Slim Pant, which has the look of a standard business-casual friendly chino. Its secret is a special nylon canvas developed to have a bit of stretch that allows it to move with your body while still being durable enough to stand up to outdoor activity. It can also deal with a light amount of rain without a problem thanks to its nano-scale C6 DWR repellent treatment. The air-textured fibers used in these pants give it a hand feel that’s pleasant to the touch, and it gives this modern take on the standard five-pocket pant long-term wearability and comfort wherever you find yourself.
If you live in warmer climates you might want to opt for the Evolution Pant instead. Designed as a super light and packable travel pant, it’s made out of four-way stretch nylon Supplex fabric that provides you enough movement and breathability for active wear while still being strong and stainproof enough to deal with accidents whether you’re at home or at the office or anywhere in between. It’s not too baggy like other pants in this category tend to be, with a slim cut to complement business casual attire or even more dressy occasions in the future. It also stands up well to extended periods between a wash, but don’t take that as a license to let personal hygiene standards slip just because no one can smell you over a conference call.
For the ultimate in comfort from Western Rise, there’s the Spectrum Jogger, a versatile pant with a stretch waist and special Warp Knit fabric from Toray in Japan that gives it the chops to get you through a quick run while still having a tailored non-baggy look that that doesn’t give itself away as activewear at first glance. And unlike standard jogging pants, the Spectrum Jogger has a hidden side seam pocket for your phone, and a zippered back pocket for your wallet to prevent them from falling out as you go out and about. You might not be able to get away with wearing this in a more conservative office when it comes down to it, but you’ll enjoy wearing these any other chance you get.
With their unique mix of comfort and smart looks, Western Rise’s line of comfortable office-ready pants will serve you well in these trying times and beyond as you progress in your career.
