While Arc’teryx is best known for their colorful outerwear offerings, their pants have often been forgotten and overlooked. The Cronin pant is made of 100% cotton canvas with a texture that is remission of workwear. The tough canvas material is durable and built to last and the straight leg cut makes it a really easy pair to wear with a lot of different footwear options. The gusseted design offers ease of movement and these come with a classic 5 pocket design. A great in-between when it comes to workwear and jeans. You can get them over at Arc’teryx or Backcountry retailing at $110.
Vintage militaria is a big inspiration for Visvim across the years and these cargo pants are one of the best examples of how they translate surplus into something more luxirious. These straight leg pants have an army green color construted from a blend of cotton and nylon. Cargo pockets and pleated knees help round out the detailing. Antique silver and bronze hardware add to the convincingly 70s look.

Y-3 is supposed to represent the gap between Yohji’s signature design and sportswear. This trouser from the current season exemplifies this philosophy with an excellent poplin trouser. Constructed of lightweight cotton , the pants feature four-pocket styling with zippered expansion panels. The cropped cut with adjustable cuffs allow the wearer to adjust the width of the opening with ease. You can find these over at SSENSE.
Nike has done an excellent job in recent years of segmenting their brand by creating various sub-lines (Nike Sportswear, Nike ID, Nike SB among them). In an attempt to bring more fashion-forward concepts to a sportswear consumer, Nike NSW White Label has been created. The label has limited distribution and a price-point that may shock long-time Nike loyalists. This may be my favorite pair of sweatpants I’ve seen all year but I had to hesitate hitting that cop button due to a retail price well into the mid-hundreds.That being said I can’t say these wouldn’t be worth it. The fit looks excellent, slim (not skinny) with a slight tapered cuff. Apparently pants are made in Italy from a cotton-blend fabric with slash pockets on the hips and a luxe paneled construction. This is as close as you can get to fooling the world that you’re wearing trousers not swepants. I might have hesitated at buying these but that doesn’t mean you have to.
