Aside from your favorite everyday bag, few pieces in your wardrobe tend to work as hard as workwear pants. Originally made for made for workers enduring manual labor tasks like carpentry or coal mining, the workwear genre has blossomed into well appreciated movement that brands have been leaning on for decades.

For starters legacy brands like Stan Ray and Dickies have championed the industry since their inception, providing sturdy and dependable pants that can handle the most heavy-duty tasks. Carhartt and its streetwear-focused WIP division is arguably the biggest name amongst the rest, and have ventured into the skate scene as skaters often need reliable clothing to hold them down against the elements. While fabrics like thick 10 oz cotton are often used for pants, ripstop and other materials have made their way into the workwear world and can be classified as workwear, depending on the job or outfit of course.

We at Highsnobiety believe workwear pants are the perfect alternative to jeans and chinos this Fall, and below we've brought you our selection of the best workwear (and workwear inspired) pants from every walk of fashion, from the trusty icons right up to designer iterations.
