Denim is great. I love denim. I own way too many pairs, and wear approximately two of them (one indigo, one white). For the most part they just take up an inordinate amount of room in a very finite Manhattan closet space. Chinos, on the other hand? Again, I own a few pairs, but wear nearly all of them on a regular basis. No other garments have paid me back so handsomely. Yet I crave more, in every color imaginable. These versions from Loden Dager are slim-fitting, flat front, and come in a plum hue that’s quite hard to find and doesn’t necessarily scream “peacock.” Yet one more notch on the chino color wheel checked off.
