They're not quite the same, but I am a big fan of Taylor Stitch's Camp Pant, having gotten a pair in moleskin last year. They have a few corduroy options this season.
I have their new cords in navy and quite like them. Really soft right out of the bag.

Derek,

Not sure if this is the appropriate place - do you have any recommendations for 5-pocket cords?

With WFH, I am putting more of my wardrobe budget into casual items, and while there is plenty of discussion on denim I haven't found many places that talk about non-denim casual trousers...I have been wearing J Crew 770s for the past couple of years, but they always wear through in a 1-2 years and I'm trying to buy better/buy less often with my wardrobe these days
Sid Mashburn.

I've been looking for a new pair myself. The ones that come to my mind have already been mentioned -- Sid Mashburn, Todd Snyder, Whythe, and J. Crew. As K. Nights noted, the Todd Snyder ones look very slim, which is what prevented me from ordering. I have a pair from Ralph Lauren's Polo line that I like. They make a bunch every season (with and without the pony logo). I think mine was like $80. They're kind of a slim-straight cut that's comparable to 3sixteen's SL-100x. But I don't know the name of the model or if they still make them in this cut. I bought mine about five years ago.
Dunhill had a nice black cord trouser last season (on Mr. Porter at least). A little slim and a touch lower rise than I prefer but they definitely feel plush and not too skinny.

I don't, but Reggie Casual is a YouTuber who covers Japanese fashion. He has a video about them. The brand seems cool.


That was my ski wear back in the day...
Is he pronouncing that right?
I always thought it was day-sahnt.
Maybe it was my error all these years.

Yea, I believe it's day-sahnte. I assume most English speakers will just say Descent though.

What's everyone's favourite mid-layer (outerwear) jackets?

I could never get into most chore coats, have lived off of various coloured safari and field jackets. I don't like the Valstar type bombers either.

With that said, I've always wanted one of those Blue Blue Japan patchwork chore coats.

Was thinking of buying a navy cord trucker jacket more realistically.

Anyone have experience with Descente Allterrain - specifically the down jackets? Any thoughts on similar brands?
I don't have a down jacket, but I do have a Descente Gore-Tex jacket with a zip-in Polartec liner than I bought in Tokyo in 1995.

Twenty-five years later, it's still going strong and I still wear it every winter. So I'd happily recommend Descente, based on my experience.
