We bring the run of khaki-themed posts to a close with info on a US-made brand doing khakis the old-fashioned way. Some of you may have received an email blast last week from O’Connell’s plugging pants that looked strangely familiar. Similar to another brand, except that the monosyllabic name behind them is Frank.
I reached out to O’Connell’s, which connected me to Frank Herbert, proprietor of Frank’s Apparel. “We are a bit different,” he says, “and have much updated fabrics with stretch and movement, use interiors with wicking properties and stretch, have introduced updated traditional styling in five-pocket trousers, as well as wool like microfiber in our pant model called the Heritage, which is a full make alterable five-pocket dress pant, and we offer this particular trouser in the traditional fabrics as well.”
The khakis run $175 for the classic model. Below are some snapshots Mr. Herbert took of his latest wares. — CC
