Oxford’s basket weave allows the pants to breath and the series of house-washes makes the fabric soft and broken in from the very first wear. Then we worked with the dye house to choose great vibrant colors for our pastimes patterns. But great colors weren't enough. We spent months working on the waistband to make it as soft as a freshly laundered baby panda. To top it off we gave the pants a classic cut, added a drawstring, and labeled the waistband. We think that you will be as excited with your purchase as we are to offer them.
