Incotex Ivory | Buy

Diffusion labels are by nature intended to expand the audience of the parent brand by offering less expensive alternatives. In terms of quality, some are essentially indistinguishable from the premier label (D&G) and some are junk (Armani Exchange). Incotex's Ivory brand just might be more desirable than the Italian-made genuine article. Manufacturing their Ivory trousers in Canada seems to have reduced costs without making any sacrifices in construction quality, and at the same time, the fit is ever-so-slightly relaxed, with a straighter leg, wider cuff, and higher rise. The cut is still undeniably Incotex, and we won't miss the crushed nuts or the skinny legs. They still aren't cheap, but more so than the original—they're making the rounds of the flash sale sites at $60-$90.
