Our Pleated Pants are built with 3" of extra ease
At first glance, they look like the classic weathered chinos your Dad wore home from the war and basically lived in for the rest of his civilian life. But under the second belt loop on each side of the fly hides a special comfort secret: an elastic band that allows up to 3" of extra ease. Think how good that's going to feel when you're crouching, stretching, climbing a ladder or trying to get comfortable in a coach seat. Hidden Crouch Gusset adds even more ease in action. And though they look refined, these pants are durable too. David R. writes: "A few weeks ago I showed up at rugby practice straight from work, only to discover I had forgotten my practice clothes. So, I did what any rugger worth his salt would do – swapped my wingtips for cleats, and hit the pitch in my Duluth Middle Management Chinos! They survived two hours of hard rugby, and the grass and mud stains washed out easily with no special treatment."
