Is it...wrong? that I kind of like these cargo pants? I'm packing up my little rolling suitcase for a trip to nyc and I feel like they would be a genius addition to my arsenal of baggy jeans + t-shirts.

Anyhoo, posting will be sporadic for the next couple of weeks, but you can follow my GENIUS tweets if you miss me.

  4. The cargos aren't my style, but whatever. In NYC make sure you stop by Resto on 29th between Park and Lex. I ate there on my last visit and it was infuckingcredible. The staff couldn't have been better either.

  5. I think it's a slippery slope between this outfit pictured here... and going out in your pajamas.

  6. I like the slouchy casual feel, but $350 USD?! (ouch.) I'd hit the Gap for some cargo pants.

  10. Yes. It's wrong. They're bad. I have a great-uncle who wears something very similar while he rides his tractor to the shop to buy his paper and whiskey. He has to ride his tractor because he had his driving license taken away.

  11. i'm suspicious of calling these "cargo pants."

    isn't the point that they're supposed to have a zillion pockets for all of your unknown "cargo" that you obviously intend to carry in said pants?

  13. I think the droopy crotch is dangerous. I was just at Miss Favela in Williamsburg last weekend (amazing Samba dance party/brunch ... figured I'd mention it in case you want to check it out while you're here), and there was a mostly stylish girl wearing shorts that had a massively droopy crotch. It was obviously fashionable in some way and designed to be that way, but she looked like was wearing a diaper while she was dancing. These are riding the line.

  16. I love them...I have a thing for baggy crotched pants and "ballet" flats...much to the dismay of some people.

  17. @Peonies @lauren no idea who George Jones is, but that story just makes me want the pants MORE.

  20. you don't know this amazing story!? ok, george jones = country legend. he was married to tammy wynette. he was a terrible drunk, so she took away his keys so he couldn't drive to the liquor store. so he drove his riding lawnmower there instead. true story. this is the stuff of legends.

    (it happened in nashville... right down the street from the house i grew up in, although i wasn't born yet).
