Need some work pants!

What is your favorite nice looking, but comfortable, work pants? Need something that has some stretch and doesnít need to be ironed. Black, dark gray, etc.

You canít try anything on nowadays so itís difficult to find what I need without having to make a million trips to the store or pay return shipping. How are people supposed to see if it fits? Almost everything Iíve bought recently is on Amazon, but I donít know if I can find the pants I need there!

I liked Worthington at JC Penney. Lots of different styles and they wear well.

the Attyre brand works for me. They seem indestructable and have lasted a long time. As much as I prefer cotton, I don't mind the rayon blend pants. They launder well and dry super fast.

Very comfy, and lots of stretchy pockets.

If you like wide leg pants, the Nolita wide leg pants from Athleta are my new favorites. So so comfortable and super easy to wash and care for. No ironing needed! (sorry - I can't get the link to work today).

I recently got some work pants from Stitch Fix. I did one of the boxes and really liked a pair of pants I received, so then I shopped directly from their stores for some others.

They're pricier than what I normally spend, but so, so comfortable. Much better than even the jeans I was wearing- it feels like wearing sweatpants! I'll have to see how they hold up over time, but so far very happy with them.

If you do the regular box, you'll get a return bag right in the package, and all you do is "check out" in your account on the website and send back anything you don't want to keep in the prepaid bag. You can also do exchanges for free- one pair of pants they sent me was too big so I just checked that I wanted the size below, sent the originals back in my return bag, and they mailed me the exchange right away. All free.

When I bought directly from their online store, they sent a prepaid return shipping label with the order; you're just responsible for finding your own box/bag to put the return stuff in.

I too prefer shopping in person when I can try things on and then take my items right then and there rather than dealing with shipping. The draw of shopping online is the vastly larger selection, plus they're more likely to have the sizes I need available. Often I first go out and try to buy things in person, end up coming home with very little or nothing, and have to buy online anyway.

I really like the Liz Claiborne ones from JC Penney. They hold their color through multiple washings, have stretch without stretching out during the day, and are comfortable.

I also have a few pairs from Old Navy. They are similar to the ones from Penneyís, but the fit is inconsistent. I ordered four pairs in different colors, and they all fit different. The ones that fit, I like, but Iím 50 miles from Old Navy. I have to try them on in store.

LLBean Perfect Fit pants are my favorite. There are several styles...I get the ones with pockets. They look great and are as comfy as yoga pants. In fact I used to wear therm to yoga class.

I agree with the LL Bean and Lands End pants. I have three pair and I canít wash them fast enough. Iím buying more soon. They are comfortable and look nice.

I also like the Liz Clairborne from JC Penny. They wash good and you donít need to iron them if you take them out of the dryer right away.
