What to wear: Corduroy pants from Lands' End

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.
