If you’re like me, chinos tend to get stale and monotonous during spring. Let’s face it, sometimes a guy needs a bit more diversity in his pants game. Enter the striped twill chinos from Band of Outsiders, a great alternative to regular solid-colored pants. With patched knees, the subtle fading, and the striped-seersucker-illusion, these pants scream spring. I can already picture my boat shoe-ed feet propped up on a bench at an outdoor bar drinking Bulleit bourbon on the rocks (3 cubes please) and complaining about how hot it is with the guys. Because let’s be serious: we all do it, even if we’re all currently lusting for the day when the mercury rises above 60 degrees.
