When a wide range of men all react to a product with a whiplash attention, we take note. Case in point: There are four separate guys we personally know who have dubbed the lululemon ABC Pant their absolute go-to. Apparently, the comfort level of the pants is off the charts, due to the tech fabrics like Warpstreme, a Japanese-loomed polyester that stretches like yoga pants but looks like nice heavy cotton, and Utilitech, a poly-cotton stretch blend. And the ABC stands for (not joking here) “anti-ball-crushing,” or in the words of the brand, “ABC technology uses an ergonomic gusset to remove tension from the crotch of our pants.” Fans say the pants look great and wash up without fading or pilling. Seriously, one friend even wears these to business meetings. So we offer as tribute—for the perfect Father's Day gift or general excuse to upgrade someone’s wardrobe—this trouser as the best buy for your favorite everyman. We’ve chosen a few of our favorite styles and colors here and added some user reviews for this stealth fan favorite.

“Most. Comfortable. Pants. Ever. I could literally sleep in these things yet wear them to a business meeting an hour later!” according to one reviewer. We don't doubt it. Boasting breathable, stretchy and wrinkle-resistant fabric, these pants are as versatile as they are comfy.
Don't be fooled by their name; the slim-fit silhouette of these pants can work for most any build and body type. “Even though I’m a little overweight, I wear the slim fit and they look and feel really good,” says one ABC wearer. “I wear them to work and as golf pants.” With their five-pocket construction and durable Utilitech material, they look like classic jeans—but better.
Comfortable does not have to mean sloppy, especially since the brand has equipped these made-for-the-office trousers with moveable, breathable and wrinkle-battling Warpstreme. Other details, like the hidden zip pockets and back welt pockets, take the dressed-up design to the next level.
These tapered joggers may feature a stretchy drawstring waist, but their streamlined design keeps them from looking *too* casual. The sturdy, shape-retaining fabric is also surprisingly lightweight. One chill reviewer writes: “I purchased this at a pop up location because I was wearing jeans around the city and it was getting hot. They are comfortable, very breathable and look good as casual pants. These will definitely be in my summer rotation.”
“The ABC pant is a must-have,” according to one fan. “Great design, perfect for the office or the golf course. ABC tech is exactly as described, and materials are comfortable and largely wrinkle free.” Yep, you can thank the four-way stretch Warpstreme fabric for that. FYI: The material is also quick-drying, so if your guy breaks a sweat or gets caught in the rain, he's covered (and then some).
