I make the case for slim cargoes, Incotex and their continuing place in #menswear, because y’ opinion is indispensable.


OUR PICK OF THE WEEK- Incotex Slowear slim fit cotton blend cargo trousers

We admit it: we have a problem, we love cargoes far too much. Maybe its the resurgence of the Americana movement in fashion, the joy for all things work-wear, the fact that cargoes are bloody versatile (when given the chance). Regardless,for those of you who were not too keen on the Ivy/prep style cargoes we covered earlier this year, this week’s pick- the Incotex slim fit cargo- may be right up your alley. 

Incotex (along with its diffusion Incotex RED) forms part of the Slowear family of clothing, known for their production of uncompromisingly high quality casual wear. This pair of cotton blend cargoes tapered for a slim fit is an example of the brand’s attention to detail, unfussy design and versatility. Wear them with all white sneakers and a scoop neck tee in the summer time or go for broke by pairing them with a sportshirt and loafers. Seriously, the variety of options is staggering: you need only consider that price to use ratio to realize how indispensable these bad boys are.

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!
