I’m not sure who needs to hear this, but pants don’t have to be tight. Like, I know the collective We has endured a thing with tight pants for what feels like a century, but—again, just to clear the air—there are no rules, nor laws, stating that pants must be tight. You can absolutely let calf-shape remain a mystery, let them pockets work and let some air dance around between skin and fabric, if you please.
In fact, I’d recommend it. And if you’re into the idea of getting a little fuller with the silhouette, Warehouse’s Duck Digger Lot.1101XX’s are a good place to start.
Drawing on the legendary 1967 Levi’s 505 for inspiration and made in Japan with a 13.5oz. 100% cotton denim—a “Banner Denim,” apparently, which is a regional mashup that blends Tennessee, Texas and Arizona cotton into a textile Bobby Flay would presumably be pumped on—this full-leg cut features a button fly, a paper patch at the back, signature “DD” arcuates and red-line selvedge ID, for those wondering.
Other than that, these appear to be some rock solid jeans that won’t rub in weird places. So let some air in, try bigger pants.
Available at Clutch Cafe for $345.
