Shopping for black pants? Visit one top e-commerce site, and you’ll be served up 404 different pairs. Too many? Another online retailer has 882 styles on offer. Those kinds of numbers can daunt even the most dedicated shopper. Too much choice often leads to no choice at all—one statistic says 79% of customers drop off by the third page of search results.

A solution is to learn the name Callas Milano, where co-founder Jan-Hendrik Schlottmann is making a specialty of well-cut trousers. Visit its website and there are several pairs that bear the label “permanent collection.” They’re core wardrobe pieces like indigo denim flares in cropped and long versions, and roomy straight-leg styles with double pleats that are replenished season after season—no worries about re-upping in a new color.

For fall, the freshness comes in the form of a new high-waisted tailored style that hybridizes a tuxedo pant and a track pant with bold stripes down the sides, a wide-leg champagne velvet pair with an attention-getting crinkly texture, and a fitted cigarette pant with zipper details that takes it cues from the slopes. The jackets in the collection include a traditional men’s cut, a shapelier, more tailored shape, and an elongated style. Smart choices, all, and no decision fatigue.
