Are you looking to add some sophistication and distinction to your look? Consider incorporating some high waisted pants into your wardrobe. Men tend to be suspicious of high fashion, but male runway and cover models have been rocking this style of pants for years, and your favorite professional athletes, rappers and rock stars are starting to catch on as well.

How high should your pants’ waist be? Truth be told, that’s up to you, your comfort level and your body type, but generally, the longer your legs, the higher your waistband can be. If you’re more conservative with your style, you can just rock a pair of high waisted chinos – long a favorite of military wear – but if you’re feeling adventurous, opt for baggier pants or pants with a flare cut at the leg.
To help you get started, here are some of our favorite high waisted pants for men:
Dickies EDS Signature Scrubs
Who said high-waisted pants have to be stuffy or formal? We love the EDS Signature Scrubs from Dickies for their casual cool looks and total comfort. The drawstring waist makes pulling them on a breeze, while the cotton-polyester fabric is both breathable and durable.

H&M Cargo Joggers
Invoke some military styling with these affordable Cargo Joggers from H&M. The deep side pockets and cargo styling harken to the cargo pants’ military past, but the baggy fit is all modern. Don’t be fooled by the loose styling, though: these pants run true to size.

Studio Nicholson Bill Pant
Available in eight colors and five sizes, Studio Nicholson’s tapered Bill Pant is a great first option for men looking to experiment with high waisted pants. Made from Italian peached twill, these pants are comfortable and effortlessly stylish.

Todd Snyder Japanese Relaxed Workwear Chino
The style of these Todd Snyder chinos harkens to an older French military cut, but the oversized fit and pleating lend it a relaxed look suitable for everyday wear. The fabric is ultra-soft Japanese cotton, making these pants very breathable and comfortable, and even the buttons are of premium quality, made from genuine melamine.

Perry Ellis Modern Fit Performance Pant
If you want a great high waist option for office wear, we recommend the Perry Ellis Performance Pant. Made from 100% polyester and available in ten different colors and patterns, this high-waisted pant combines style and comfort with ease thanks to its no-iron construction and moisture wicking properties.

DUER Live Free Adventure Slim Pants
You’ve seen the baggy cargo cut featured above, but don’t sleep on a tighter fitting cargo pant, either. The DURE Live Free cargo pant uses stretchy, water-repellent twill to keep the comfort levels high, while tightening the side pockets and the lower leg cut to give you a sleeker silhouette, perfect for a night on the town.
