Hey you gorgeous Real Weddingsbrides! I know we normally feature Dazzling Dresses on Thursday, but today we thought we’d break with tradition a little and present a little something something for the boys…Bonobos.
I first discovered Bonobos while traveling in a cab through Manhattan…appropriate, since the company is based in the heart of the Big Apple. I was watching one of those pre-tapped news segments on the way from JFK to the city and saw this story about a couple young guys who started a company that made men’s pants…really cool men’s pants. I was so struck by what I learned on the ride from the airport that as soon as I was able to log on to a laptop, I checked out their Web site.
Bonobos prides itself in its fit. Not too baggy, not too tight…just right. And they have variety: khakis, wool, seersucker, neutrals, bold colors, you name it. The pair I finally settled on was a brown wool number with a paisley back pocket liner (I love the details). It fits like a glove.
So now I’m sharing one of my best wardrobe secrets with you…the amazing pants that are Bonobos.
