I’m always on the hunt for casual pants with a little edge to take me from the ball field on the weekends to those work days where I’m less designer and writer and more profession shlepper. It’s essential that they can transition to every season, be styled in infinite ways and they must be classic enough to last for years (decades) to come. This camouflage pair perfectly fits the bill — camo is a neutral, but the rich tones really up the ante. The cinched ankle means I can throw on a t-shirt and birkenstocks or add a cashmere turtle neck and Chanel flats, depending on where I’m headed. It’s an investment for a basic piece, for sure, but they will be well worth the wear.
