With Military-Inspired Details, the Cargo Pant Is Suddenly Stylish

Slim and trim aren’t always better, even with cargo pants.


Cargo pants and cool are two words that generally don’t go together. The utilitarian garment has unfortunate associations with baggy atrocities from the 1990s. Svelte, tapered numbers have given the style a new lease on life, but sometimes a guy needs room to breathe; slim and trim aren’t always better, even for cargo pants.

Leave it to Beams Plus to get the baggy cargo look right with its new Six Pocket Military Pants. The Japanese brand takes design cues from classic American military cargo pants, famous for a loose, almost anti-fit. The adjustable waistband helps the pants fit uniquely to your physique and the drawstring ankle gives a slight, sudden taper at the bottom. These features come directly from U.S. Army cargos, and while the six-pocket design here doesn’t have as much carrying room as the military-spec eight-pocket model, the pants still have more storage room than almost anyone needs.
