You know how we feel about knock-offs pretending to be high fashion. But when Old Navy does it, you have to recognize it for what it is. It won’t be as of-the-moment as the original and it certainly won’t be as well-made. But it will also not be as expensive or as hard to find as the original!
Take the new men’s patchwork cargo shorts. We’ve coveted the Polo and J. Crew versions of this twist-on-preppy (our favorite style), but our spendthrift brains and blogger budgets would just not allow us to fork over $70 for summer shorts. Old Navy has finally answered our prayers with these $34.50 numbers, available online only at the moment. Which is fine, because it will probably be a few more weeks before you can wear them!
