It's said that when under a certain amount of emotional distress, people revert back to a time and place where they felt most comfortable, where they felt the happiest, when they looked their best.  It's also said that we have a hard time letting go of particular habits and looks of the time when we were "in our prime".

There was a time in my life where I exclusively wore back trousers. All the time, with everything and anything. It was, to date, my most favorite look. During my black pant phase I was in love, a happily busy, and full of ambition and drive.  Then and now are pretty much the same except the black trousers have become denim.

With the incipience of a few stresses and a sudden on set of feeling quite old I need to slip on some nostalgia. Hence I have been on the hunt for a pair of black trousers to wear all the time, with any and everything.
