Is there a type of pants that are comfortable, that look nice but are not jeans

I am not a fashion person at all. I do though want my son looking nice for school. He does not like jeans and fights me almost every morning on having to wear them. I don't want to send him in sweatpants I don't think there nice enough fo school. What else can I buy that would be reasonably priced that would make us both happy.

  • buy him some khakis...they're cotton, just as breathable if not moreso, and look a bit more dressy. you can usually find them in various neutral colors from tan/beige to navy to olive green to black/brown. JCP has nice khakis..and since my ds hates buttons (jeans, polos), they also carry them in elastic waist.

  • Do you have a Kohls near you? They always have nice pants and they only cost usually 5 or 6 a pair.

  • Just check your local stores, my daughter is the same way, she hates jeans and fights me when I try to put them on her. I found some ones at stores that look like jeans, but have elastic bands and don't "feel" like jeans to her. They are really nice too. :)

  • Garanimals has nice pants, some are lightweight but they do have some that are a little heavier weight but aren't denim. Also, they have athletic pants, some with matching jackets (my 9 year old loved them when he was smaller).
