Reston: The Pants Now Available in a Rainbow of Unsurprising Colors

reston the pants.jpgWill the cavalcade of products named after our beloved earth-toned community never cease? First, there was the highly contagious disease. Then there were the stove burner covers, foam pads, and stools. Then there was the magazine, the opera, and the major motion picture. But now, we can all show our civic pride by wearing the fancy Marmot Reston Pant. Eighty-five dollars seems like a small price to pay for a garment that counts among its features 50 UPF to "shield against harmful UV rays" and a "gusseted crotch" (not going there).

But why, you may wonder, would they name these pants after Reston? Take a gander at the available color options:

Yep, that's about right.

    This is hilarious. "Waiter, there's a large ground squirrel in my pants rummaging around for some nuts!"

    And I notice that this clothier pays perfect homage to the DRB by having these pants available only in appropriate earth tones of desert khaki or saddle brown.

  2. Saddle brown? Round these here parts, we call that Russet Brown!

  3. Olympic "Butternut", amirite?
