Funny how tastes change. As recently as a week ago, I would have sworn that you’d never catch me in a pair of slim fit cargo pants (or any other kind of cargo pant for that matter). Then, along come the Moleskin Utility Pants from Canada’s Wings + Horns, and just like that, I can’t think of a pair of bottoms I’d rather wear more. Painstakingly crafted in Japan from heavy-duty cotton moleskin, the MUPs are as rugged as they are refined, like a cocktail party in the Canadian tundra (which these would be perfect for, btw). Admittedly, they are a bit pricier than the usual CWAC fare, however, if you think of them more as a versatile pair of dress bottoms, and less as a casual pant that can be dressed up, the cost actually isn’t all that bad (relatively speaking). Two colorways are available (olive and black), and Roden Gray has ‘em both.
