Fila ● Wiley Cropped Pants Women’s

Let’s venture once again in bottoms territory. While usually there is much attention to the top part of the outfit, people tend to neglect this part. The result is that you see people that keep on wearing the same denim forever, literally not caring about trends but the result is there to see: they look old and they think they don’t.

That’s why I am here: to suggest alternative ways to cover your legs and look crisp. This time I went the extra mile: if usually I let girls wear men’s hoodies and tees, I wore myself a pair of Fila women’s pants, courtesy once again of T.Cha, the sharpest brand manager.

Right before Spring Summer 2020 season of the Italian brand is delivered in shops, I can let you see a preview of the Urban Line that basically is a revisitation of a classic. Originated in baseball, more exactly with the first striped Chicago Cubs uniform ever in 1907, Fila wanted to bring back this American sportswear classic.

Giving a twist for better to the basic sweatpant that you keep on seeing everywhere, with this Wiley Cropped Pants Women’s we have a taste of the finesse that Fila built its reputation on since 1911. There is a trend that we could generally call “printed pants” where there is a tendency to give more importance to this part of the outfit, making it more visible through patterns and designs that you rarely saw before.

So, in a perfect balance among past and present, dropping this item now is an operation that shows a perfect timing. Not only trend wise but also with the 65% cotton 35% polyester fabric, that beside being stretch, shows a thickness perfect to keep you warm but not too much, just like it is needed from a track pant like this.

Of course the icing on the cake is the branding by the side of its straight cut pockets. Peep Fila’s F on a squared patch, one of the most instantly recognizable logos in sports and apparel in general (that made even Fendi fall in love with it) and tell me if this is not a street dream that becomes true…
