Mountain Khakis Review

 

Tripping through the interwebs this morning I came across Mountain Khakis' "Built for the mountain life" blog and was most pleasantly surprised. Now I have been a psuedo fan of their pants for a few years but never really looked into the company. I say psuedo fan because after shelling out almost $70 for a pair I blew through them in a few months and me being the cheap bastard that I am I have stuck to Goodwill clothes, where I can get 25 pairs of pants for the same cost!

Now admittedly most of the Goodwill clothes are not fancy and not nearly as durable or as cool, but I figured since I had such a bad run with my $70 pair I was alright with it. However, now I am rethinking my decision. Sure I can get tons of pants for cheap but where does my money go? With Goodwill industries it goes to a good cause but what about the manufacturer of the pants, do they support what I know and love? NO WAY! Unless I love sweat shop kids and abuses of earth and human rights.

So I will give the MK's a chance again...when I can afford it. Because I love what they stand for and I love their support of the mountain lifestyle. This is a company that you can be proud to support. In fact if you are wondering about Mountain Khakis please check them out and if you have any questions ask away.
