Today was, according to the thermometer, the first real autumnal day we’ve experienced this season. It was not quite cool enough for a sweater, so I donned a chambray shirt (from Flint and Tinder) and a pair of sturdy khaki trousers (from Jack Donnelly), both made in America.
The khakis from Jack Donnelly deserve special attention. They’re slim without being tight, with a rise that’s significantly higher than most of today’s narrower trousers–more in line with the higher waisted trousers at the apex of the Ivy look in the early 1960s. It’s safe to say that they’re among my favorite trousers–and for good reason.
