If there’s one thing we know for sure about Real Simple readers it’s that you’re forever looking for the perfect pair of black pants and the perfect white shirt. Well, we found a recommendation from an unlikely source today: Michelle Kosinski a correspondent for the Today Show.
On Today’s fashion blog yesterday, Kosinski told the story of her favorite pair of black pants that she has been wearing for eleven days straight after an unexpected assignment sent her from icy Amsterdam to sweltering South Africa without a chance to stop home and repack her bags.
While she doesn’t give the link to the exact pair of pants, based on her description: “my slim-legged, stretchy belt-looped Ralph Lauren Black Labels with a little split at the bottom of each leg” these Lombard Bi-Stretch Wool Pants from Ralph Lauren Black Label are the closest ones to what she describes. Pricey? Yes, but if they can be worn for 11 days straight, they might just be worth every penny.
