Banana Republic Straight Dress Pant Review

Banana Republic’s Straight Lightweight Wool Herringbone Dress Pant is a very well made, comfortable dress pant.  The 100% lightweight wool makes this pant comfortable for all seasons.  If you’re going to buy dress pants, you really need to consider pants made from wool – they wear and breath better in all seasons.  I chose to review the flat front pant – actually, I’ll only review flat front pants as wearing pleats in a fashion faux pas nowadays.   The herringbone pattern provides a distinguished look and mixes well with many dress shirts.  The straight fit of these pants provide for a clean, lean look.  The pants sat comfortably at my waist.  I liked that the pants were lined to the knee as this helped with the comfort factor.  The pants feature a zip fly and a hook-and-bar closure.  The closure was fine and looked fine when clasped.  I do prefer the combination of an interior button in combination with the hook-and-bar.  Standard dress pant pockets include two off-seam in the front and two back welt pockets.

Overall, a good looking and fitting dress pant.  At $98/pair they are average price for a decent dress pant.
