Best Black Pants Ever: N0-BS Pants by American Giant
Your search for the perfect black pant has ended. Seriously. American Giant sent me two pairs of their NO-BS PANT to try, and I have to say these pants are the BEST black pants I’ve ever worn. Read on for my full review plus a promo code so you can try the best black pants ever for yourself!

Over the years I’ve tried quite a few pairs of black pants for teaching, but I’ve never found “the ones.” I love the “pixie” style slim black ankle pants, but every pair I’ve tried is either unflattering, itchy, uncomfortable, or just plain ill-fitting. When I’ve worn dressy black pants in the past, I couldn’t wait to go straight home and change into something more comfortable. The big kicker with American Giant’s NO-BS Pants is that besides looking sharp and dressy for work, they are comfy and durable enough to wear around for errands and weekends. Best of all, you can even lounge around the house in these beauties!
The NO-BS PANT: Form AND Function
The idea behind the NO-BS Pants is that they look like pants, but feel like leggings. They’re made from smooth double knit 4-way stretch Ponte. The material is matte and opaque, never sheer, never shiny, and super soft and smooth on your skin. But they’re not just comfy: they stretch just enough to move with you, but they never sag or bag out. Plus, they’re durable and resist pilling and fading from wash and wear. I also found that dog hair brushes right off! That’s a biggie at our house.
Basically these are pants you can move in, eat in, and live your life: the perfect mix of style and comfort. All this and they’re really flattering because they smooth you out, if you know what I mean. 😀 Oh, and did I mention there’s a pocket? It’s big enough for your keys or even medium to small sized phones. I am a “hands in the pockets” person, and I’m happy to report that I was able to walk around with my hand comfortably in the pocket.
NO-BS Kick Flare Pant
The pants I’m wearing in the photos below are the NO-BS Kick Flare Pants. I was a little nervous because although I love the look of kick flare pants, they don’t always look the best on me. However, these looked great! The flares are slight and notched, so they’re very flattering. These look great dressed up for work and equally great for weekends! I am about 5’5″ and the cropped length was perfect.
NO-BS Pant (Petite Length)
The NO-BS Pant is the basic black slim pant. I was happy that they come in Petite lengths, because regular pants are always too long on me. The Petite length came to just at to above my ankle area. Perfect! These pants also come in Tall sizing, and both these and the Kick Flare pants are available in sizes 0-16. These pants could definitely be worn as dress pants or leggings! Note: I wouldn’t wear these for workout pants: that’s not what they are designed for. However, they are perfect for office, classroom, errands, and even lounging on the couch at home.
