It’s January. All the parties have been thrown and all the shows have been streamed, which means you might as well get some work done. That's easier if you feel good about how you look, and if you need an upgrade on the style front, we say make it a pair of pleated, cuffed trousers.

These are not your regional sales manager's favourite pleated pants—they're slimmed down, or properly roomy, and telegraph a message closer to "I get it" than "I give up." Plus, you can wear them with practically any shoe: derbies, combat boots, high-tops, you name it. Here are 6 we like for $400 and under. Pick up a pair and then get back at it.
