Ultimate Guide (2022): Mens Tech Pants

Ultimate Guide (2022): Mens Tech Pants

Introduction

With the pandemic, I was fortunate to have a full-time job that I could do from home. My employer is starting to make plans to open to a hybrid arrangement (part of the workweek at home and part of the workweek at the office).

While working from home, I did not have much need for the dress clothes that I wore to the office. I did not do telework in casual clothes, as I found that I could not get into work mode without dressing somewhat more formally than jeans and a t-shirt.

Now that 2022 looks like the year that I will return to a commute (maybe?), I had an interest in refreshing my wardrobe. Perhaps, the reader is in the same position. One of the types of clothing that I looked for is pants. I tend to wear wool dress pants that I pair with a blazer or sports coat.

It is a neat outfit. However, rain can present a problem—soaking the wool and ruining the crease. This happened to me several times. While I will not give up on wool pants, I was searching for pants that are formal enough for the office and can deal with rain well.

I found a category of pants called men’s tech pants. The pants typically have cotton, some elastane for stretch, and polyester for some water resistance. I found several brands that sell this type of pants. Most are formal for a workday, and a few others have a casual design.

I also added two pants from Mott and Bow for comparison: The Everyday Chino and the Mercer Twill Denim. Both pants have mostly cotton with some elastane for stretch.

Review: Maverick Tech Chino

I decided to try Mack Weldon’s Maverick Tech Chino. I was familiar with Mack Weldon through previous orders. I decided to try the Maverick Tech Chino because it was like the pants I had worn for work from home days (100 percent cotton). I bought the belt that Mack Weldon recommends for the pants. I wore the pants as some when I received them.

Despite the cotton in the pants, the fabric is a little stiff. (The pants get a little less stiff with wear.) They are comfortable for my sedentary job. While I planned to use the pants for work, I also wore them to the supermarket and the coffee shop.

The pants have been working well for me. I will likely buy another pair.

Conclusion

New pants to suit at-home or in-office wear. Also, they can be used for casual events.

Shortys Apparel is a brand to consider because you work with the owner directly.

In one of his videos, Jordan showed the room in his house where he stores his product for sales. He also shows where he packages an order for customers.

It is also good to see Jordan wear Shortys clothing as he does his day or workout tasks.

See a separate post for a mention of Jason Hoeung, the owner of 2Eros and Supawear in Australia, who made a video explaining the features of modal and elastane in men’s underwear.

Colors of Shortys Apparel’s Boxer Briefs

At the time of this post, the colors for sale are white and navy blue. Jordan announced on a YouTube post that Shorty’s would add three colors: light blue, coral (light red), and grey.

The brand added new underwear in June 2022.

My Order

I placed an order for four Hammocks boxer briefs after Shortys Apparel released the new colors. Ordering from the website (built with Shopify) was straightforward. I received my order within three days.

The underwear is made in China. The fabric is silky smooth and stretchy, which Jordan demonstrated in his try-on videos.

Photo Shoot with Photographer Stevan Reyes

Jordan announced in a YouTube video that Shortys will be expanding its product offerings.

To capture images of the new products, Jordan had a photo shoot in a cabin (The Love Lodge Lithia) with Florida Photographer Stevan Reyes.
