@Newcomer can be the coolest dad at the park, with this as a diaper bag.
Awe, did everyone pitch in for my baby shower gift?
@conceptual 4est these look great do they come with a belt? I thought I had seen self belted chinos mentioned on their IGRest of the Wythe for tomorrow:

Other color of the tencel pearl snap. I think tencel was a good call here as the flowiness of it plays nicely with the heft of the snaps.

And finally the pants in two colors. These are high waisted, pleated, with a full leg. They're inspired by the OG khakis that GIs wore home in the 40s, but in a custom loomed 65/35 slub cotton/linen. Nice and lightweight. Peter describes these as something to wear into the ground and I can definitely see the appeal of that. Just the go-to summer pant for the rest of the year.
One big thing to note is that these are sized quite large, so double-check measurements before checking out if you have your eye on them. They're designed to be worn higher on the waist and cinched in with a belt, and Peter also mentioned he washed his sample pairs hot and dried them on high heat and got around 3% shrinkage, so basically 1" in the waist.
Even accounting for that my guidance would still be to size down.
