Like a good pair of jeans, great corduroys can be a workhorse. Your dresser's relief pitcher pairs well with suit jackets and button-downs, but doesn't mind consorting with a T-shirt or two. New York-based designer David Mullen has been turning out a thoughtful lineup of neutral staples for some years now, under the Save Khaki label. And it's not just khakis. His five-pocket, thin-wale dark navy cords have a narrow (but not too slim) fit, low-rise cut, and the worn-in character of your favorite denim. Just pull them on and go.
