You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
Jesse Kamm’s Sailor Pants arguably started the whole genre of high-waisted, wide-legged, cropped pants. Strategist senior editor Katy Schneider first tried on these “sturdy and substantial” sailor pants in 2015 but didn’t buy them — and for the next two years, she was “haunted” by them. Eventually, in 2017, she spent her tax return on two pairs of these pants that are “tight and flattering on the butt in a nice way but relaxed everywhere else.” And right now, these rarely on-sale pants are 25 percent off at Need Supply in an array of colors, from olive green to midnight blue. If you’re on the fence, don’t dillydally: Sizes are already selling out.
