In the 1960s, amidst the surplus khakis and odd pair of Levi’s, the pants of choice on Ivy League campuses and any campus for that matter that subscribed to the style of dress were slacks. Slim fitting, tapered, and featuring a slight pleat, they complemented oxford shifts and blazers to a tee and looked tidy without getting too formal. Nowadays, slacks and trousers have pretty much fallen to the wayside, replaced by more mainstream and casual options but with renewed interest in dressing up again after a few years in the ‘from home’ mindset, why shouldn’t they come back? Warehouse Japan was even like ‘We’ll Trojan horse them with denim construction to get the jean freaks excited’. But if you think for a second we can be so easily manipu- wait these are them? Yeah, take my money.
Made from a 120z. neppy denim (of course woven on vintage machine), these pants have the feel and wear potential of jeans without all of the hallmarks. And with a fuller fit up top which cascades into a slight taper, these pants treat you to the tailored experience: a form flattering look with comfort to match.
Finished off with a clip fastener instead of a top button, zipper fly, and a repeating crest pattern along the waist band—a classic motif in Ivy clothing—your brain might be confused as to whether you should dress these up or down but thats the beauty, you have range for both and thanks to the durable construction you’ve got years of experimenting ahead of you. Now where is my honorary degree?
