Castaway Critter Pants at The Narragansett

“Critter pants.” For every wearer there is a denier. For every popped collar prepster with a love for the bold-hued shorts and pants peppered with embroidered adorable icons, there is someone nearby quietly mocking them. In Newport though, critter pants are more broadly embraced, even if worn ironically. Just this week I came across great critter pants at The Narragansett on Bowen’s Wharf by Castaway Clothing. The line is by brothers Andrew and Matt Bridier, and while their name may not sound familiar, you many know their fashionable legacy—their great-grandfather founded Nantucket’s famed Murray’s Toggery Shop, best known as the birthplace of Nantucket reds.

So the Castaway Clothing at The Narragansett—there’s a handful of styles, including holiday patterns, marked 50% off right now including tan cords with black labs, blue cords with snowmen, tan cords with holly berry and green cotton pants with dancing Santas (cords originally $145, cotton pants, $125— both half off).

The new arrivals (at regular retail price) include green cords with little beers, tan cords with footballs and red cords with little green whales. Loving these Castaway pieces, it seems these fourth generation haberdashers are writing the newest chapter of their stylish heritage…
