Modern casual wear and drawcord trousers

Trends come and go every year often reshaping whole styles of dressing, currently, we think this trend is drawcord waistband trousers in men’s causal dressing.

Once kept to gym and loungewear the drawcord pant has breached mainstream with big brands on the high streets being big fans.


In a post covid world, the modern man craves comfort at all times, they don’t want to be restrained into to garments that are uncomfortable and unstylish.  The adjustable drawstring waistband eliminates the need for belts and gives you a personalised fit every time you wear them. It’s a style that appeals to the generation of smart casual dressers.

The relaxed silhouette and generally soft fabrics give off laid-back vibes, but if you choose you can get more formal fitting tailored shapes but still with the extremely comfortable waistband.

It’s a style that will see you through weekend brunches right through to a smart casual wedding or office look.


We are in the age where the boundaries between work, leisure, and social activities are often blurred the demand for clothing that will literally see you through night day, work and drinks is ever-increasing and drawcord trousers are something that straddles all of the above and gives the freedom to wear at all most every occasion. They are the functional yet fashionable choice in modern casual menswear dressing.

The drawcord trouser has taken over the modern man’s causal dressing because it caters for and embodies the changing priorities of the modern man, especially in a post covid world.
