We’ve put on a lot of “best travel pants” in the past year. Duer nailed it.
The Slim A/C Pants are Dish & Duer’s best, and the first pair of pants we look forward to wearing to the office, on our next flight, and out on the trail. The A/Cs have side vents that are basically invisible when closed, and the perfect amount of stretch. Other than that, in their “storm” colorway at least, they’ll blend right in at work. I’m wearing them as I write this.
We also put on the Adventure Pant, a more rugged take on the A/Cs with front-facing subtle-but-useable cargo pockets and adjustable ankles. They feature similar stretch to the A/Cs, and the same amazing moisture wicking pockets, and while they’re not as versatile or understated, we like wearing them just as much.
We didn’t get to try the Roam Joggers pictured above, but we were already big fans of the No Sweat Joggers if you have need of such a thing.
If that wasn’t enough, Dish & Duer also makes waterproof (!) denim jackets, vests, blazers (?), and jeans. I wasn’t expecting to ever wear a jean jacket again, and can’t really remember if I ever have, but Dish’s helped me fend off some light rain on the way in today.
Some compromises come with the jeans. The hard part, which was making waterproof jeans still look and feel like jeans is accomplished with aplomb, but you’ll have to choose between relaxed fit, which we wore, or a utility pocket. Let’s get a slim fit dark wash low rise with no extraneous pockets in here Dish.
Dish & Duer is getting a whole lot right when it comes to pants and denim, and we’re looking forward to trying on their next ventures.
Update 8/8/17: We checked out Dish’s Live Lite Journey Short- essentially a sawed off version of their A/C Pants. With an essential taper that shorts require to look good, invisible zippered cargo pockets, and the same amazing pocket bags as Dish’s pants, the Live Lite shorts look great and perform even better. They’re even moisture wicking.
