Jeans alternatives - Page 2

post #16 of 24
Ive had the same exact problem/question now for years. The only answer Ive come up with is maybe a toned down pair of cargos from a good designer -- like an EG pair of cargos? grey chinos i think is a good alt too. Wow, you took the thought out of my head with this topic...

Canvas workpants could also work. Tailor a pair of carhartts. Their washed duck color is classic and looks good beaten and dirty.

I love those uniglo "chinos".

How can I get my hands on a piar?
They online store doesn't appear to exist.

More seriously, Nudie has been doing some interesting stuff with their "canvas" jeans lately and might be worth checking out. They don't really look or feel like regular denim.

I actually have a utilikilt, it is quite liberating. I don't wear it too often. I traded in the heavy duty, goth looking one for the simpler cotton twill. I wish it were a little bit longer, but it isn't so bad just about my knees. Topsiders are okay, but they look best with my Doc Marten brogues and a high pair of scottish socks.

I was wondering this myself. Anyone know?

anyone got more input on cotton duck pants? I tried to get a pair of carhartt washed duck (b11), but the seller sent wrong size and I ended up with a refund instead... something along those lines, but more jeans cut perhaps?

IMHO it is hard to beat Mason's pants. Virtual Clothes Horse carries a few at deep discount - as well as YOOX and occasionally on e-Bay.

Mason's fashions are rugged and durable pieces originally inspired by the military uniforms of the Colombian Liberation Army in the early 1980s. The Libertador fabric of which many of these garments were made is a double twisted cotton that was stronger than the American denim of the time, is flexible, and can withstand tremendous activity and wear. Mason's set out to make activewear that was both stylish and resistant to the stresses of life.
Unlike many trendy fashion lines, Mason's is dedicated to research and innovation from a production standpoint. In addition to the Libertador fabric, they also use canvas, cannete, Ottoman, and tricottina fabrics that can't be found in any other major fashion line. A recent partnership with acclaimed designer Massimo Bertelli has given Mason's an even more elite profile worldwide, as Bertelli is considered one of the leading designers of vintage-influenced clothing, combining the traditions of the past with savvy modern style.
Mason's jeans are named for the degree of aging they appear to have. For example, they have a "3 year" wash, a "7 year" wash, and a "Rip and Repair." Each is increasingly and uniquely distressed, from the gentle broken in feel of the "3 year" to the tattered edges and worn corners of the Rip and Repair.
In addition to Mason's jeans, the line includes a number of tops for men and women. In the women's collection, shirts including the Have, Meknes Patch, and Sigua each feature unique detailing like printed flowers and patchwork. The men's collection includes long sleeve shirts, as well as jumpers and jackets with ribbed sleeves that add distinguishing touch to the garment.
