In the cold weather it can be hard keeping your legs warm, especially if you love wearing jeans. The solution is pretty simple, there are wonderful fleece and flannel lined jeans that will keep you warm, comfortable, and still looking great. Whether you need them for working outside, shoveling, commuting or you just have bad circulation that causes you to feel cold all the time, lined pants will help you beat the cold without having to give up the look and feel of your regular jeans.
LL Bean Fleece and Flannel Lined Jeans
L.L Bean are one of the best places to get men’s lined pants. Most of their styles are a classic, relaxed, or natural fit, but they do have a slim/straight option if that is more your style. Generally the L.L Bean lined designs come in a stonewashed color and the interesting thing is that you can get them in either fleece or flannel lined. Which is better would obviously depend on your personal preferences, but the consensus seems to be that the fleece L.L Bean options are significantly warmer than the flannel. So if you need jeans for long periods outside, go with the fleece lined, and if you need jeans for indoor and shorter periods outside (walks, shoveling, commuting) go with the flannel lined. L.L Bean clothes are always great quality and tend to last quite a long time. What is also nice about the L.L Bean styles compared to a brand like Carhartt is that the fabric has been prewashed, so it is soft and more flexible when you first put it on, so there is no break in period.

Carhartt Men’s Relaxed Fit Straight Leg Flannel Lined
Another really good place to get lined jeans is from the brand Carhartt. A lot of their carpenter styles are super strong and warm if you are working outside for long periods of time. They also have regular style jeans like their Men’s Relaxed Fit Straight Leg Flannel Lined that are also great if you have to work outdoors. This design is a relaxed fit that is indigo colored, it is also straight-leg with lots of extra room on the seat and the thigh. It is made of 100 % cotton denim and has quite a wide leg opening, so you can get the bottom of the pant over work boots if needed. Carhartt denim can often be a little stiffer initially than other brands, but the material is super durable, and once they are broken in most men find them quite comfortable. The legs on this style are pretty big, and the overall look is a little bulky, but totally fine if you are working outdoors and just want to stay warm.The flannel lining isn’t overly thick but it will keep you warm, while also being very soft and comfortable.

Fredd Marshall Fleece Lined Skinny Slim Fit Warm Stretch Jeans
For those who love a pair of skinny jeans and want to stay warm in the winter, there aren’t a lot of pants to choose from. One skinny option that we found was the Fredd Marshall Men’s Fleece Lined Skinny Winter Slim Fit Thicken Warm Stretch Jeans. Most reviews say that they are more of slim fit than a skinny fit, which is probably good since a skinny fit line pant might be a tad uncomfortable if you have no room for moving around. Since lined pants can add a bit of bulk to your look, it is hard to make a slim style that looks good that is comfortable to wear, but this design from Fredd Marshall seems to do the job. They come in 4 colors, including black, which is very hard to find in a lined slim fit pant. The fleece on the inside is reportedly quite thick and super warm, yet is comfortable and breathable.

They are said to be very warm and comfortable when out in the cold or when you are inside.
