Pleated trousers are a relatively new thing for us... we stuck to flat-fronts only for the first dozen years or so. This pair is a bit more modern-feeling than whatever your associations might be: more “stylish Italian” than “someone's dad at graduation,” with a slim cut, single forward pleats and elasticized tabs at the sides instead of belt loops. (There's a trademarked term for this that rhymes with “tax” — you know the one — but the most important thing to know is that you don't need to wear a belt. One less thing to worry about.) This pair is made of a particularly soft, not-too-heavy wool hopsack from Northern Italy, noted textile hotspot. The color's pretty special, too: a complex, blackened shade of petrol that shifts from blue to green depending on the light. There are horn buttons, quarter-top pockets, end-on-end pocketing, a split-back waist with our signature green bartack, and a 37.5" unfinished inseam that's ready to tailor to your perfect length. P.S. There's even a matching jacket if you want to make it a DIY suit. Each half is fantastic on its own, but worn together as a full look? Dynamite.
