Nothing to wear? Cargo pants

Weird term, cargo pants. Neither fish nor flesh. Some people call them combat trousers. But that doesn’t quite have the same ring. They’re not, and never will be, as easy to wear as jeans, but on those days when you simply can’t bear to look at another bit of denim without feeling violent, a cargo pant will provide a good, doughty alternative. Especially if you like pockets. Especially if you like big, square, meaty pockets that almost do away with the need for a handbag. Cargo pants have plenty of those. Two, to be precise – one on each thigh. And smaller ones on the bum, too. And – if you’re really lucky – two further ones for you to put your hands in and mooch.

Should cargo pants be army green? Not necessarily. I have a black pair that I adore, and wear with patent high heels and a tuxedo jacket to “tamp down the look”. Beige ones are also super-handy. Grey, too. Not so keen on camouflage – too literal. What should unite them is their chino-like fabric, soft to the touch and malleable to wear. Much more malleable than jeans, goddamn them.
