Manly in Mauve

I've been searching all spring/early summer for a pair of mauve pants.

Not pink. Mauve.

I'm pretty sure the whole idea was spawned by a Margaret Howell show last year. Regardless, I got it in my head that I had to have this one thing as it would "complete my summer look" or whatever. Lo and behold, on asos.com (like a british urban outfitters) I came across these bad boys:



Perfect in every way.

They come tailored just so; skinny, but not egregious. It's the closest to a perfect off-the-rack fit I've ever seen.



Nice weight. Holds a summer roll.

And I can wear them to work, on those days when I feel like getting a lot of dirty looks.
