I see your five pocket cords and raise you. Moleskin trousers already popped up on Sart Inc as a great F/W alternative so I figured I would muse a little on moleskin jeans as well. Polo put their killer moleskin jeans on sale and, as someone who owns an earlier version of this pant, I offer my full endorsement. If you had passed on moleskin trousers up until this point because they were a little out of your comfort zone, this is probably a better starting point. The 5 pocket silhouette is extremely familiar to everyone who reads this blog, but when done in moleskin the style gets a wonderful upgrade - don't be afraid of juxtaposition. I really can't say enough good things about Polo's moleskin jean. The cut is great (if you've never tried on their slim-fit), the fabric is luxurious and they look badass. The thing I like most about these is how you can beat the shit out of them. A 5 pocket style pant is an everyday pant and the moleskin ages in a really unique way. You can wear them a lot this time of year and they are machine washable. After one season you are going to have a non-denim pair of jeans that are truly all your own. For $105 that's one of the best deals around.
