The Dad pants are made of medium weight chino cotton, a year-round daywear fabric fit for any essential of a cool dad’s wardrobe. These stripped-back chino pants are a revised version of « all-American slacks », with their slightly cropped length, slim-fitting flat-front legs and secret ticket pocket. They are finished with a whimsical zig-zag stitch inspired by the finishings offered by 1950s domestic sewing machines.
A term first introduced by Haggar in 1938, “Slacks” aren’t so much a specific garment as a fashion philosophy. Slacks are simultaneously the most versatile and generic pants in any dad’s wardrobe. Big presentation at work? Slacks. Golfing? Slacks. Bonus dad points if they’re beige with a big, crispy pleat.
