Everybody’s been there: staring into the closet the night before heading out of the country, searching for a hybrid of sweatpants (for comfort) and trousers (to avoid looking like a total schlep). While circa 2011 the answer may have been the infamous jegging, 2015’s long-haul pant is much more flattering—sleek, easy-to-wear, comfortable denim.
Enter: Jac’s Jean from AYR. The skinny style is named after the brand’s design director, Jac Cameron, who literally calls the pair her “fly to Hong Kong jean.”
What makes them the perfect travel bottom? They have just enough Lycra to move with you while attempting to find a restful sleeping position in coach, and the combo of tencel and cotton makes them ultra soft. Not to mention, you’ll arrive to your destination ready to stylishly take on a new city.
