The pants are for the days like today when I'm up and out at 6.30am and need the feeling of comfort. I wore my Cheap Mondays yesterday. In most cases todays outfit would have had the ball huggers versus the sloppy cargo's. I'll try better tomoz! Hey, no need for ball crunchers unless you like 'em. I actually kind of like the silhouette with the loose/slightly baggy cargos, I'm just not big on the pattern, and think the look would be razor-sharp with slim pants. In any case, it's still good.
