When envisioning a well-rounded winter wardrobe in 2017 your mind will most likely skip to the usual subjects, overcoats, jeans, hoodies, and boots tend to belong in most style-savvy closets, but recent years has seen a dark horse emerge when it comes to seasonal essentials, the contemporary cargo pant.

Workwear has seen a significant resurgence in recent seasons and the cargo pants utilitarian sensibilities fit right into workwear 2.0’s vibe. Originally designed with the battlefield in mind, the functional, hard-wearing garment has transferred to fit the demands of contemporary life seamlessly.

Labels have been stylishly reimagining the military pant for a few years now, which has resulted in quite a wide-ranging selection of the garment being available at a host of price points. Workwear heavyweight Dickies present the classic style in a fitted silhouette, whilst Rothco provide a similar option with a looser fit. In a slight departure from the typical style, Rick Owens presents a drop-crotch version of the piece and Yohji Yamamoto comes through with a pleated version emblazoned with text.
