The Opposite of Slim Fit
Bill’s Khakis is rolling out a new line of heritage-approved khakis, so we thought we’d take a moment for a quick brand appraisal.
On paper, they’ve got everything we like—a military bent, a local factory, an obsessive focus on fabrics—but in the age of eCommerce, a slight warning might be in order: these are the polar opposite of slim-fit.
It’s not a bad thing, necessarily. (Certainly there’s no shortage of ankle-hugging khakis in the world.) For the thicker among us, they’re probably the best pants on the market…but if you’re used to the slim, pleat-free silhouette of everything else you see in the blogodome, you may be in for a surprise.
