pants and polo shirt got my job in rio!
So, I needed minimal clothes to get a job teaching in rio. The polo shirt and the ascent pants are perfect, along with the pace breaker shorts.
everywhere i went for 5 weeks, to work out, etc, i showered first in the shorts and the shirt. i would wring out the shirts and the shorts. finish cleaning up, and put the cloths back on. clube de flamengo, the beach, whereever. i would then go to job interviews at a university with professors, priests, even to lunch with people from international banks and my consulate. the crossover polo was good enough for these business meetings, and I got the job. i looked good enough to teach at the college and graduate level, and i could literally run a triathlon from start to finish in the shirt.
as for the ascent pants, thrown them in a day bag (inside a plastic shopping bag), and change over in a bathroom next to the head of the social science department, or at the bathroom in the priests residence before dinner with a dozen jesuit priests.
plus, all the stuff looks good enough to fit right in at a leblon night club. maybe find a laundry once a week, and buy some deodorant for the day bag, but that is it. these are the best travel cloths ever! recommended to me by a Navy SEAL buddy, who should know.
the staff at the la jolla store are awesome. they changed out some of the clothes if there was ever an issue, and they recommended the perfect shirt (cross over polo). in the future, i will be ditching all other cloths, and packing two crossover polos, and that is it! less is more!

great pants, good fit, wear them to the office with dress shirt - very comfortable. prefer the looser fit of the ascent over the mission pants.
In store, there were other colour options, grey with thin stripes and black with stripes. Will these colours be available on-line?

I usually take a 33 inch waist and the 34's fit perfectly. These are the most comfortable pants I've ever worn! They are awesome for business causal wear or for running errands. The secret pocket is one of my favourite features, its just the right size. I would recommend them to everyone and plan to buy more of these pants!

Just bought these pants and wore them today for the first time. I love the fit and the way they feel- they are perfect for work but, very sad and disappointed to say that they ripped right next to the pocket. I spent a great deal of money and not even after wearing them once did they rip. very sad.

These fit well and are quite comfortable. If they don't fit try the mission pant. I'd be surprised if both fit or neither fit. Comfortable stretch-able material. Great look.

These are great pants - especially for travelling. Super comfortable, good weight and still soft. Like most lululemon products, size up...I am a 33" waist in pretty much everything and needed a size 36. Not super skinny like other pants but not baggy - for me, the perfect fit.

Better than wearing no pants
Great semi casual pant, look and feel amazing
The side pocket is awesome, no need to carry a wallet.

I too like the mission2 but a little short,I am 6'3", the fit on the accent was great but the material seemed stiff and hot compared to the mission

Fit TTS with adequate junk room (LLL sometimes makes pants too tight there). Great 4-way stretch that traditional dress pants don't offer. Love the hidden zip pocket in the front left pocket. Great length for my husband who is 6'3". The fit of the pant legs is a bit more tailored/narrow than his usual dress pants. However, by no means are these "skinny" or "slim" - still a nice relaxed fit.
He'll wear these to the office occasionally, golf, etc. Should be excellent for future vacations, as well. I suggest every man own 1-2 pairs of these.
