- Army Green Crinkle Cotton Poplin - This poplin is all about the texture! A creped surface, this cotton looks like silk noil, but without the dry clean only care. In a utilitarian army green, this fabric will make for a gorgeous pair of slacks. The poplin has a little crisper drape than the other two fabrics, which makes it well suited for the wide leg version of the pants, but like most cottons, it will soften up with washing so you can be sure your slacks will be oh-so-comfortable!
- Light Gray Brussels Washer Linen - It's no secret that we love Robert Kaufman's Brussels Washer Linen. The combination of linen and viscose creates a fabric that is soft and silky, with a gorgeous semi-fluid drape. This yarn-dyed version in light gray has a lovely heathered look that adds depth and texture. The neutral color allows you play with the color of your tops and shoes to create all sorts of different looks. Go bright for a bold summery look or stay neutral for a serene beachy feel. The possibilities are up to you!
