    Cargo/Utility, Cream/White Coats - Faux Pas?

    What are your opinions on cargo/utility trousers? I have a few pairs from a year or so back but don’t tend to wear them anymore. I’m not sure if this is just down to the fact I don’t see many fashion conscious people wearing them, or just that I am struggling to think of how to wear them to keep it looking current.

    I’m wanting to do a spring clean, but often regret throwing things out. Again, I’m not sure if this is because I genuinely like things, or just because I’m a bit of a hoarder.

    If anybody can put forward a good case for wearing them (maybe a look book or two), I might refrain from getting rid.

    Thinking about it, I have a lot of things I can’t think how to wear, including a cream Diesel hooded coat and a white superdry technical windcheater jacket (don’t ask) which I have never worn.

    Amazingly, Superdry sells pretty well on eBay. I think you know what to do.

    Pis of the items in question would help, but they don't sound good imo.

    I would ship the lot tbh. Cargo trousers are never a good look. Much better to be ruthless with your wardrobe. If you haven't worn it in a year, get rid. This is something I have had to learn as I also have a bit of a hoarder streak!

    I would say they're good for eBay - the white jacket in particular is a . . . statement. If you've never worn them and can't see yourself doing so then I can't see any reason not to shift them, you can at least recoup most of the cost.

    Cheers. Yeah, both were bought online and I was in two minds when they turned up. I thought they might grow on me but haven't in well over two years (I kind of forgot I had them). Statement pieces aren't really me.

    Looks like I have a LOT of eBaying to do this weekend.

    That superdry jacket is THE WORST. Sorry.

    I actually like the Diesel hoodie though, that will get big bucks on eBay, Diesel sells very well.

    Don't know if yours are baggy , but slim fit cargo pants have been having a moment lately. Here's some inspiration in case you decide to keep them:
