I (foolishly) thought that my winter pant rotation was finished accepting applications, but then Engineered Garments went ahead and dropped some Galaxy Brain corduroys and I’m now reassessing pretty much everything in my life. Or maybe not everything, but at least 73% of things.
To paraphrase those weird dudes who live in the Alaskan wilderness*, if you have to ask why I’m doing that, the answer won’t make sense. Tbh, my answer probably won’t make sense even if you thought you understood, but it doesn’t matter because these monochromatic patchwork cords are so good: subtle but wild, kind of like if Mr. Rogers started micro-dosing.
(*Am I the clothing equivalent of those weird dudes? Increasingly likely.)
Done in a variety of either black or chestnut brown 100% cotton corduroy fabrics and patterned off their classic Fatigue, these relaxed pants feature slant patch pockets at the front, an internal drawstring, a button closure at the inside of the waistband, flapped patch pockets at the back, and a bit of a taper through the leg.
And again, that patchwork makes them just a little odd, which should be required in any winter fit.
