I’m always in amazement whenever I see someone wearing white pants. Particularly during the warmer months, there is something incredibly stylish about this new option to khaki, denim, and black colors.

However, what most strikes me as impressive is the courage it takes to face the day in white, a color that begs for all manner of sartorial mishaps. A stray coffee brew or an unanticipated puddle would be plenty to destroy the effect. I just don’t believe I could keep them looking brand new!

It’s only recently that I’ve started to change my mind, but when I noticed how many white trouser outfits were in my Instagram saved folder, I realized my subconscious was trying to tell me that this alternative might just be worth the risk.
