I don’t know about you, but picking out clothes for my dad is always such a gamble. For one, he’s super tall and a former football player, which makes it difficult to find something in his size. And two, he has a very specific taste that doesn't make it easy for me to pick up just any T-shirt from Dick's Sporting Goods and surprise him. But this year, I’m convinced I’ve found the most functional piece of clothing that my dad can wear year-round. Enter Lululemon's ABC Classic-Fit Pants ($128).
Word on the street is that these are some of the most comfortable pants in the world (and in Dad-land). And it’s all because of their versatile construction. Sure, they look like a pair of tight slacks on the outside, but they sure as heck don’t feel like it when you slip them on.
The secret is the brand's Warpstreme fabric. This is a special blend of polyester that's made for everyday wear and performance, (aka, it's easy to wear and very durable.) It's also lightweight, breathable, and moves with your body. Plus, the pants have a ton stretch, so you can walk, run, and jump in them without ever feeling restricted.
Best of all? They really let your nether regions breathe. Fun fact: the "ABC" acronym in the description originally stands for “anti-ball crushing” which…need I say more? The reason for this is the roomy gusset, which is designed to help reduce tension in the crotch. Not to mention, the pants can be styled with nearly any pieces in your wardrobe. For example, you can pair them with a sweatshirt to keep things super casual, or with a nice henley for a dressier look.
And while the classic style above may not be your fave, there are several other cuts to fit Dad's unique body type, including: slim, relaxed, and skinny. Oh, and there's even a jogger style for anyone who wants more breathing room and a cozier silhouette.
The pants seem perfect on paper, but how well do they actually fit? To answer this, the team here at Well+Good asked some of the men in their lives to give us their honest thoughts on what makes these pants a go-to option. Here’s what they had to say:
One W+G dad in his early thirties says, “Lulu ABC pants are the most comfortable and durable pants. I can wear them to work, and I can wear them on a night out. They’re the best pants I have and will ever have. I love them!”
Though not a father, another staffer raved about how versatile the pants are. “Lululemon pants are the best pants on the market right now," he says. "They are the perfect balance of comfortable and durable. They are versatile, you can dress them down or dress them up. They are worth the price tag!”
Bottom line? If Dad is looking for something dressy enough to wear to work, but still comfortable enough for him lounge in wear them while he's out and about all day, these are a safe bet.
