Recommendations for blue corduroy pants, trouser or 5 pocket but no easy pants or pleats?

Orslow only have the 107 fit, which was too narrow in the largest size they have and Glenn’s Denim didn’t quite make the cut for me.
Do orSlow fatigues work for you? Totem has a blue version.

Is that for indoor or outdoor use? Indoor: look nice. Outdoor: having a hard time picturing good fits for these because they have that refined/luxe dimension that rarely works for mule-friendly fits.

Thanks — was thinking for outside. It’s one of those things I think look nice objectively, but may not when I actually wear them.

@LeBeef what kind of fits are you trying to out them in? I agree those are a pass for outdoors, they look like a luxe version of something Suicoke would make.

Dunno if you wanted alternatives but for a more dressy version check out the Viberg mule, I've heard great things about it but it's expensive.

For more casual/cheaper options there is the Viberg slide and a friend has and likes the one Sabah makes.

For a more similar look to what you posted above maybe check out Suicoke

Thinking about the KS field wrap jacket in wool. Did anyone pick up this Kaptain Sunshine field wrap jacket fall/winter version, like the one here? I'm trying to think about how I would use it, since it's tailoring, and in a somewhat formal color, but at the same time it's supposed to be more casual than a real suit.

The rest of the images can be found here: 【Kaptain Sunshine / キャプテン サンシャイン】Field Warp Jacket / キャプテン サンシャイン フィールドジャケット (fort-gs.com)

As the thread says - would you buy or pass? if you buy, how would you use it?
