Why Buy: J. Crew's PERFECT Surplus Khaki Pants

($74, J. Crew)
At long last! My search for the PERFECT summer khaki is OVAH. J. Crew's Surplus khaki pant has ended a heretofore fruitless quest for crisp, lightweight, half-fitted, half-slouchy khakis that look cute rolled up and CAN'T NOT go with pretty much all of my favorite basics like a denim jacket and a stripey top, a vintage band tee and moccasins, whatevz, it's a free country.

They come in Blanched Almond (beige) and Cool Slate (blue), but I got the Utility Green (olive).

THE FIT: I'm usually right in between a size 6 and an 8. I got an 8 because khakis look best on me when they've got a little slouch to them. Swag.

THE PRICE: They're $74, and they're the best $74 I've ever spent on khaki pants.
