It’s quite possible that while you want to add some GTH to your holiday lineup, you also want to stick with subdued colors more fitting for the time of year. While there is nothing subtle about a GTH pattern embroidered on a pair of pants, there are atleast some options where the background is a little more reserved. Take for instance the Tangled Cords by Bonobos ($125).
Unlike other GTH holiday options, these cords are dark green, so the color itself isn’t what’s GTH about these pants. Instead it’s the tangle of embroidered Christmas tree lights that show a general disregard for what other people think. Of course, the best thing about these pants is that they are made by Bonobos, which means they have that curved waistband and magic in the seat that make them the best-fitting, most comfortable pants out there. So whether you break these out at the company Christmas party or save them for my favorite winter pastime, reindeer hunting camoflauge (they’ll never see you hidden in that Christmas tree), these pants are particularly fitting for the holiday season.
Bonobos had some issues with its Cyber Monday sale a few weeks ago when the increased traffic crashed the site, but, in typical Bonobos fashion, they handled it perfectly, keeping customers alert of the progress, extending the sale and repeatedly apologizing. Those issues have been fixed now and we can just hope that other companies will take note and practice the same level of customer service that Bonobos did.
