Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can wear pretty much anything he wants (so long as it’ll accommodate his biceps, that is). He’s an A-list celebrity, after all. He’s got the means and the access—plus a stylist who’s a celeb in her own right, Ilaria Urbinati—to get dressed up in stuff non A-listers can only dream of.
So, when he steps out in a supremely affordable pair of pants from Mango, we should all pay attention. And when fellow celebrities James Van Der Beek and Pedro Pascal wear the same pants, all inside of a week of each other, well, we should probably all think about buying the damn pants. Even at full price, they were only $70. Now, they’re half off. $35 bucks for some movie-star style of our own? That’s a no-brainer.
Here’s a bonus: Aside from being Celebrity-Approved Pants, Mango’s slim-fit linen trousers are also Perfect Summer Pants. Because despite fall’s imminent arrival, we are still very much in the dog days of August. And if you believe the heat and humidity are going to disappear just because the calendar reads “September,” I’ve got some bad news for you.
Luckily, there is some respite from the swampiness, and that respite is airy, elegantly rumpled linen. It’s what you wear when it’s really hot and you’re really cool–or you at least want to feel that way. And when it comes to these trousers, it’s available in a flattering slim fit that’ll pair perfectly with everything from camp-collar shirts (a la Van Der Beek and Pascal) to summer sweaters (like The Rock’s). Options abound! So, maybe the warm weather can stick around for just a little while longer. Not too long, mind you. Just enough to stretch your newly linen-covered legs a bit.
