GAP Slim Herringbone Cargos – $43.99 ($59.95) | Slim Fit Cargo Pants – $28.99 ($59.95)
Believe it or not, sizes are pretty much sold out on those two pairs up top. Check your local brick and mortar GAP though. They might have some hanging out on the clearance racks.
Man. These things are like Rasputin. They just… won’t… die. They’re the boomerang of trousers. And this time the cargo pant comet has come back around in a tapered, ultra slim form.
Which means those extra pockets have been rendered almost completely useless. Hard to get any true “cargo” in there when they only have half an inch of travel between your thigh and the outside world. But it’s not like we’re stuffing stuff in our lower blazer or sportcoat pockets. Those are purely asthetic.
Maybe the key is to keep the pockets purely inside? Maybe? No ballooning, expanding patch/pleated pockets. Keep em’ streamlined like the charcoal version up top and to the left. Apologies to Sergent Friday, but perhaps the key to cargo pants is to see just the flaps… ma’am.
Or maybe they’re just a lost cause no matter what. Would you wear them? Leave your take below.
