We think that the best part of the coming warm weather is the opportunity to bust out the loud patterned pants that sit forlorn in our closets all winter. They’re so happy and gay (really gay, according to one slob who made fun of us for wearing patchwork pants) that its a shame we can’t wear them year-round.
A new addition to our collection this year will be the J. Crew tropical squares pant. We suspect they have such a bland name because they are total rip-offs of vintage Reyn Spooner fabric from Hawaii and the folks at J. Crew know that someone will sue their vintage khakis off for this.
Anyway, these pants are slim fit (hurrah!) and have a great vintage look with a rumpled buttondown and flip flops. Be the talk of the next cocktail party or start a reputation when you wear them on casual Friday.
