.32 Pant, by Patrol USA
Here’s a rugged construction-style trouser that you’ll dig for your day-to-day grind and also out on the town and/or at play. This heavy-weight pant is highly durable and is made of 98-percent cotton and 2-percent spandex. That smidge’ of stretch sets this pant apart from other work-pants that just don’t have any give. Still, not everyone likes a stretch pant; this offering tiptoes that best-of-both-worlds line oh-so finely. Style and comfort when you want it, pure utility when you don’t. This pant is made in the USA and is available in brown (pictured above), blue, gray and (my personal favorite) green. The company was founded by two brothers who graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder, just a few miles down the road from the FREESKIER office. Go Buffs! — Henrik Lampert, Editor-in-Chief
