It’s silly that it has taken me this long to do a post on something from Albam. They’ve been on my radar since long before I even started CWAC, but, so much had already been written about the all-UK-made outfitter, that I simply couldn’t think of anything new to add to the conversation. However, after having spent the better part of 2 hours covetously pouring over the label’s sublime AW10 collection, I’ve realized just how foolish it is for me to let my fear of being redundant stop me from giving the co. a (long overdue) mention. And now, with all the said, I guess it’s probably time I say something about the pants after which this post is named (kind of got away from me there). The Autumn 2010 Taper Chinos are expertly crafted in the UK from heavyweight, 100% cotton Italian drill. An effortlessly elegant option for the week or weekend, the pant’s details include a RiRi zip fly, single rear welt pocket, and, as the name suggests, a narrow leg opening for “a cleaner look above your shoes.” There are three colors to choose from, and I say go for one of each.
