West Coast Preppy??

July 11, 2010 · 5

Jonathan Li - Five Four Chambray Shirt, H&M Khaki Pants, Nooka Watch, Sperry Top Sider Boat Shoes, K Swiss Black Plastic Frame Glasses, Jack Spades Tote/Shoulder Bag - West Coast Preppy??

It took me 3 months to find a good pair of cotton slim fit khaki pants and I love this pair from H&M! They're perfect for summer, pair it with a dress shirt, or t-shirt, or polo...they literally go with anything!

BUT, this pair of pants in this cotton is a nightmare to wash and iron, it wrinkles so easily and so intensely. I'm sure many others on this website have similar experience with cotton before.

Oh, and my favorite part of the outfit is actually the Jack Spade tote/messenger bag, hehe.

i heard about the wrinkles on the styles forum, i too am looking for that perfect pair of khakis in that brighter color of cream (not so grey/dull tint like most khakis) and these look promising. do the wrinkles resolve themselves after a few weeks of wear or are they always just wrinkly pants? any suggestions on other brands that may have the same cream color?
Jonathan Li
the wrinkles are sort of still here, unfortunately, but they are so awesome, I wear them literally every other day. I think Zara carries a thicker version, if you can afford more high end, try Spurrs or Steven Alan, or even Richard Chai Love

Hope that helps

Checked out ZARA today, no cream colored khakis, I did find a very nice pair from Michael kors in bloomingdales but too bad the fit was not nice, I could have them tailored but I figured it would be more it to find the right pair

Sorry for being MIA, it's been a crazy week, did you find a pair you like? I still like my H&M ones b/c it's super thin and perfect for LA, it's easy to be dressed up or down, let me know how it goes

It is alright no need to apologize. I did not find a pair however I will just be looking out at new seasons to see if they will maybe re-release a similar pair. Thanks!
