Patagonia Cord Pants
It’s pleasant owning a pair of Patagonia trousers as I know they’ve been sourced sensibly. I’ve not owned a pair of cords for probably 25 years, but am wondering why?

Patagonia, like many of outdoor clothing manufacturers, fortunately make trousers that are long enough for tall people. I like the fact that it has a zip as opposed to a bunch of fiddly buttons that cause me to appear to be fumbling with my groin as I impatiently re-enter the pub. Plenty of pockets too. All in, a nice pair of trousers.
