5-Pocket Review: TSG Boone Pants

Next up in the 5-pocket pants review: the new Boone Pants from The Sporting Gent.  Owner Marc Williams and I have become friends over the past few years, and he has been telling me about this redesign for a few months.  Well, they were just released, and I was able to get my hands on a pair.

Out of the box, the look is sharp.  I like the triple stitching in all the right places.  These are the ‘Sage’ color, which is a green-grey color.  The fabric has 3% stretch, but looks almost to be garment-washed vs. brushed.  The fabric seems more sturdy than their last go-round.  The fabric has a nice feel to it.

The cut is great – just what you’d expect.  The rise is standard, not too high, but not low enough that there isn’t room to move.

It’s important to show the image below:  On a size 32″ waist, the leg opening is 8″.  This is what I’d call a slim/straight fit.  These pants are perfect to wear with loafers or low-top boots.  I don’t think they’d fit over Russell Moccasins, but maybe a pair of ropers.  TSG calls this a straight cut, and it looks to be that way:

Sneaking in a little camo is A-OK.

In terms of care, I wash these on cold, dry for a few minutes, then hang to dry.  They’ll keep their shape, but may need a quick ironing to straighten out the seams.  No need to dry clean.

All in all, I’d give these pants a thumbs up.  So many 5-pockets on the market are baggy, so these are good for those of us that like a slimmer, more refined look.  At $129 a pair, they are just above that average cost of the 5-pocket market, but you won’t find many with a slimmer cut off the rack.  Good to go on my end.

    Do you know if the waist sizing is the same as their Bulletprufe pant (which runs large on me)?

    Do you have any 5 pocket pant recommendations for guys who are a little bigger and need a relaxed fit?

      Check out the Orvis 5 pocket stretch twill pants. Lands End traditional fit pockets are a steal and definitely a looser fit.

      they are not of the same quality but the good threads from amazon are very good value proposition, I’m a fat guy but still like to dress decent and don’t want billowing legs and what not but also don’t want to look like fat guy in little pants and I have found them to be perfect fit and also they come in inseams 28-36 I get the straight but I think there is a slim option now as well not sure. I am vertically challenged and have never been able to wear pants off the rack but the 28 in inseam fits perfect and they’re usually 15-30 dollars depending on whatever type of promo they’re on so basically disposable..
