Go from Grillin’ to Chillin’ in Parages’ Dad Pants

Summer is over and whilst you may have covered up the BBQ for now, that doesn’t mean you can’t channel relaxed dadCore vibes usually found beside the grill. The first port of call once you’ve kicked the New Balance off, is a pair of solid chinos.

Finding a clutch pair can be a daunting task with so many variables at play, however, French label Parages have almost made it too easy a choice with their Dad Pants. Made in Portugal from 100% cotton, and featuring a relaxed fit throughout, the deep navy tone and no-nonsense simple yet elegant design instantly makes me think that — as well as norm/dadCore — iconic French workwear clothing could well be the inspiration here. The button fly, extra sturdy belt loops, and somewhat ultra square back pocket reinforce this notion nicely.

Expect comfort, longevity, and versatility with these, and at a price that won’t break the bank.
