OUR PICK OF THE WEEK- MICHAEL BASTIAN SKINNY CARGO PANT
There’s this wrongful perception that cargo pants or military style utility trousers are unflattering. Widely considered to be the domain of Birkenstock flaunting, North Face lugging American outdoor junkies, the cargo pant is actually a highly versatile and visceral alternative to both chinos OR denim.
This version for Gant (by buyer turned designer Michael Bastian) makes our list for a number of reasons. Between the working suspender waistband and the hand stitched detail on the seat, this is a well cut and flattering pair of cargoes in a brave color you’ve never seen before. Block this with a more muted grey or cornflour blue shirt and low-tops for the fittingly off-duty American heritage look. Or go sans sock in the summer time with red wingtips and a plaid elbow patch blazer for that consummate ivy style. Not a fan of turquoise? Why not go stonewashed on the world for a more muted but no less attractive alternative!
