I’m done with Warm Pants™ for a little bit. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Warm Pants, I just don’t want to wear them right now. I’m not necessarily pining for shorts, by the way, just for Not Warm Pants. Pants that let some wind in on purpose. Pants that are a bit airy, plenty baggy, and maybe a little less structured. Pants like the Easy Earl Life Products Sun Pants, if we’re getting technical.
Made in Japan from a dumb lightweight typewriter cotton cloth, these feature a zipper fly with a top button closure, elastic at the back waist (important), standard belt loops, side-seam pockets at the front, welt pockets at the back, and a loose, slightly tapered fit through the leg.
And apparently, for those wondering, “Easy Earl Life” means “a comfortable and noble life”—at least in the context of these pants—and it’s also styled as EEL occasionally, which is a cool acronym. And if you’re looking for some pants to get you from Soon to Why Are the Days Short Again, between the good name, the good fabric and the good design, these are going to be hard to beat.
