Super Seller: Skinny Cargo Pants

In our Spring 10 key item runway analysis, we featured Balmain’s skinny cargo pants along with a number of other skinny pant styles including Balenciaga’s sporty elastic waistband pants. If you had a look at our Fall 10/11 key item analysis, you know that slim silhouettes are here to stay, and just a little update – like cargo pockets – go a long way. Why buy another pair of skinny jeans or jeggings when you could have a new item like the skinny cargo?

Last week Cathy Horyn dedicated an entire New York Time’s article to J Brand’s skinny cargo pants, which have sold more than 75,000 pairs from the end of January to present. The popular style, called the Houlihan, is sold at Bloomingdale’s, Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman and Intermix for $230, while the Balmain styles are around $2,000. According to J Brand, the style has been so popular that 40,000 pairs are on back order, though a quick look on today reveals a full selection!
