Full disclosure: Overall, I’m not a huge camo fan. I do like some camo accessories – we have a tote bag, and I have some Field Notes and a few caps that are in various styles of camo, but that’s about it. I do really like the old duck hunt camo. It has a cool, vintage look, but has been been dated by some of the more technical camos that are out there today.
I came across these pants on Ebay for an extremely low price, and I bit. For $20 (shipped), you’re looking at a pair of old Wells canvas pants, complete with Ranger pockets. They are way too long for me, so I’m looking for a little advice: what would you do with these pants? I believe I have four options:
- Leave them as is, and wear them with boots.
- Get them tailored like a pair of everyday khakis – think ‘J. Crew Essential Khakis’. I’d wear them almost like a pair of jeans.
- Get them tailored like a pair of dress khakis – no break with 2″ cuffs. I’d wear them with a blazer and loafers…probably to outdoorsy events/banquets.
- Get them cut into shorts.
Let’s hear it, folks – what would you do? Here are more images:
