Finding The Perfect White Pant
One of the great things about getting older is knowing when pieces of clothing will work for you just by looking. Something about the shape, the cut of the pant leg....you just sort of know.
Despite my relative fashion adventurousness I am hyper-picky about white pants. They have to be just so: not too tight (sausage casing), not too thin (pocket lining showing through...gah!), a decent fabric (no thin, shiny, clingy rayon), back pockets that are not too bulky (I don't need a fatter-looking ass, thanks very much)....you see? I'm difficult. I have demands.
When I saw these brand-new Calvin Klein trousers on US eBay for $22.00, I knew they would be for me, even from across the Atlantic. They are a lovely luxurious fabric, are lined (yessss!), flat front, flat back pockets, and are just the right length to give you that nice break in the pant leg. Major score. These are forever pants. I got so excited about these pants that I ran outside to shoot these photos without ironing them. I hate ironing.
Keepin' it real people. That's how I roll.
