As a result of lockdown restrictions and the widespread adoption of working from home, the past few months have seen a massive shift in the way men are dressing. Comfort has become the number one priority and unapologetically so: suits and ties are out and cosy loungewear is very much in. One WFH wardrobe addition that we can't get enough of is the drawstring trouser, which combines the comfort of elasticated pyjama bottoms with the smartness of dress trousers. Whether you're after a pair of refined sweatpants that fall under the luxury sportswear umbrella or something slightly more tailored, you've come to the right place. Stay at home in style, with this selection of some of our favourite drawstring trousers at the moment.
Wax London has a knack for creating ultra-versatile clothing that you can wear anywhere, with anything. Its Alston trousers are the perfect all-occasion slacks, smart enough to wear out and about with sneakers and an overshirt, but comfortable enough for lounging around in at home.
We've previously waxed lyrical about L'Estrange's 24 Trousers, and we will continue to do so.

Genius.
