Buy/Sell/Hold: White Pants After Labor Day
- Kempt Staff
Of course you know the old canard about not wearing white after Labor Day.
And surely you know the new one—about how that’s an old-fashioned rule that ought to be forgotten. But when it comes to your trousers, there’s still a difference between your summer and winter whites.
And to help you differentiate, we’ve put together this handy guide on what to buy now, sell/pack away or hold on to in the farther reaches of your closet:
Buy: Heavy selvage jeans in a natural shade of white, like these from Noble Denim.
Sell: Anything exceedingly lightweight, linen or blindingly white.
Hold: A sturdy pair of chinos that can range in shade from ecru to sandy—used sparingly as a bright spot on an otherwise gray day this winter—like these from RRL.
