Sometimes it pays to wait. At least if you don't mind rolling the dice.
That is certainly the case with the Lands' End corduroy pants pictured below ($26.97; available here).

First released last year, the pants are available in what Lands' End calls “garnet” — a perfect color for go-to-hell corduroy pants.
And that’s probably why they didn't sell out. The color may be just a bit too bold for some gents.
However, when outfitted right, the pants are beyond perfect and have endless potential.
For something casual, pair the pants with a classic button-down collar shirt, merino or cashmere sweater, tweed jacket and suede chukka boots. For something a little more dressy, think a navy blazer or tweed jacket, gingham check shirt, wool or cashmere knit necktie and suede loafers.
Styling tip: Spend a little money on a good tailor, who can easily remove the belt loops and use the leftover material from hemming to create side-tab adjusters. Just be sure to order unfinished.
