So, if you’re searching for the greatest business casual jeans out there, then you’ve come to the right place. From independent labels like Asket to international fashion houses such as Zegna, this is – quite literally – the A to Z of business casual jeans. So, stop what you’re doing, and check out some of our favourite pairs down below.

Best business casual jeans for men


To kick things off, we have to give the Heath by Forét a special shoutout. What we like most about these business casual jeans is the fact that they’ve got everything that you need and nothing that you don’t. Made from pure organic cotton, these specifically bypass any unnecessary details so you’re left with a piece of very functional, no nonsense trousers that are sure to stand the test of time. They’re available in four colour options, but the traditional dark navy wash is the best of the bunch.


If you didn’t already know, Closed has been a family business since it was first founded in the late ‘70s. The company describes themselves as having French imagination, Italian craftsmanship, and German tradition, and they’re probably known best for their denim. With countless pairs to choose from, the one that we’d recommend the most would be the very appropriately named Relaxed Jeans. These are washed and dyed with innovative methods, making them a lot more sustainable compared to a regular ol’ pair of jeans.


When you think of Velasca, the first thing that would spring to mind would probably be its shoes and boots. We don’t blame you, but that doesn’t mean you should overlook its business casual jeans. Take the Millesimo, for example. Named after a tiny region in Italy, they’re crafted from a special kind of denim that’s durable and flexible and doesn’t crease. What’s more, the more you wear them, the better they look. They also come with five convenient pockets for all of your essentials and so much more.


It’s no secret that raw denim can be expensive. But while other labels tend to overcharge their customers, Asket has always been quite transparent about their pricing structure. That’s why The Raw Denim Jean is surprisingly affordable. Cut from rigid 13 ounce Japanese heritage raw denim, they’re made from 100% certified organic cotton, and sewn to perfection in Italy. You can also get these in different sizes as well as builds, so you’ll definitely be able to find a pair that fits flawlessly.

Luca Faloni

You just can’t talk about the coolest business casual jeans out there without mentioning Luca Faloni. While the eponymous label is known mostly for its cashmere knitwear and accessories, its denim game is also one of the best in the business. They’re produced in the province of Padua in a mill that's been creating high-quality textiles since 1887. The mid-weight cotton used has a natural stretch to it for easy comfort. If this colourway isn’t your thing, it’s available in four others too.

Wax London

These Slim Fit Jeans by Wax London have only just been announced, and they’re already becoming one of the British brands most popular pieces. For good reason too. Made entirely from cotton, they’re comfy, timeless, and will work with any outfit you throw on whether it's a zip-up sweater or a wool cardigan. They’ll also complement all of your out-of-office clothes as well. You need to be fast though, as some sizes are already beginning to sell out – don’t say we didn’t warn you.


Yes, we get it. Mackintosh is world-famous for its mac jackets, but the Scottish imprint is also a tour de force in the denim game. The Standard brings their tailoring expertise into sharp focus. Lovingly crafted in Italy from organic cotton denim to a straight silhouette, they’re detailed with front pleats and crisp creases. Belt loops surround the waist, while welt pockets and a notch at the back round it all off. They’re definitely on the pricier side compared to some of the others in this article, but it’s well worth it.


Zegna is quickly becoming one of the most hyped fashion houses on the planet, and it’s thanks to pieces like the City 5 jeans. Constructed from beautiful indigo denim that's woven with a hint of stretch, they're cut in a slim-leg profile and have a classic five-pocket design. They’re then finished off with contrast brown stitching throughout, and the legendary debossed leather tag around the back. If the fashion industry’s biggest names and Hollywood’s most famous faces swear by these, you probably should too.

Jil Sander

If you haven’t introduced a bit of quiet luxury into your wardrobe, there’s never been a better time than the present. While business casual jeans don’t usually sit under the stealth wealth category, the Straight-Leg Jeans by Jil Sander certainly do. Designed by husband and wife dream team Luke and Lucie Meier, these are made in Japan from rigid dark-blue denim that'll soften over time. They're cut for a particularly relaxed fit and have two-tone topstitching along the pockets and belt loops. It’s all in the details, people.


And last but certainly not least, we have the Slim-Fit Straight-Leg Jeans from Canali. Simple, streamlined, and seriously sophisticated, you can rock these both in the office and during those WFH days. They’re crafted from some of the finest mills in Italy, and decorated with a leather logo patch around the back. If you’re a big fan of this silhouette but you want them in a traditional navy hue, don’t worry – they’ve got you covered.
