Editor’s Note: Now at Everlane, you can save $44 when you buy two Performance Chinos. Valid until March 29.
Finding pants that look sharp but don’t overheat and restrict during the summer months is a difficult task. Pants designed for warm-weather wear can easily end up feeling too technical and artificial or feel a bit too seasonal. Everlane’s Performance Chino is an attempt to split the difference.
Cut from a cotton and elastane fabric, these classic everyday pants are available in four colors and designed to be sweat-wicking and quick-drying from a four-way stretch material — all for under $75. But the real innovation here isn’t the technical qualities of the chinos. Designing outside-of-the-gym clothing to perform like athletic apparel is far from a new idea. Instead, what makes these chinos from Everlane remarkable is that they don’t look like running tights masquerading as the kind of pants you’d wear to the office. Even trousers designed by the best technical and athletic brands have a hard time avoiding that wrinkly, out-of-place look despite their sky-high price tags. Will Everlane succeed where others have failed? At $72, you won’t have to spend a lot to find out.
