- Reaction score
I have some thoughts on the matter. I would prefer something lined, not too dressy but not too rugged that it would look out of place in a relaxed office environment.
- Engineered Garments Mil Pants on Hejfina; this comes very close to my ideal; the loose fit has me on the fence
- Woolrich Upland Pants; just a little less expensive than the EG pants, but perhaps over-engineered? Not sure I need the knees or inner thighs reinforced so much...
- Filson whipcord or Mackinaw pants; these are around the same price as above; having never worn Filson pants, I have no idea how they will fit me; I suspect that I wouldn't be able to wear the Mackinaw pants indoors, so that leaves me with the whipcord jawns. At $160-ish (and cheaper on eBay), these looks like the ones that will land in my wardrobe.
- J Crew officer trousers; also around $165, and the only option that I can hope to try on in-store without having to make a special trip.
