A Twisted Classic

We've already extolled the virtues of corduroy this fall, but let us bring your attention to another pair of pants ideal for the season. These pinwale cords, from David Chu's line Lincs, come in burgundy or a safari green, which means they offer a refreshing break from your everyday jeans or chinos and they team nicely with everything from a navy blazer to your hardier winter sweaters. They're cut in a straight fit—not too trim and not too baggy—but what really makes them stand out are the details. Along with a tab waist, the cuffs of the trousers are outfitted with tabs as well, which allow you to taper the legs for an eclectic, Italian look. Or to simply artfully bunch your cords atop your boots.

$118, at select Dillard's stores
