The Basin and Range pants are made of a soft, cotton corduroy that’s as comfortable as it is durable, and they’re even enzyme-washed to give them a “lived-in” look and feel that we wholeheartedly appreciate. What’s more, the relaxed fit gives ample room to wear a base layer underneath to double down on warmth when the cold intensifies, but also feels easy and breezy as the ice thaws and the weather warms up.
