A company known for its great-fitting jeans has created the latest fad in cargo pants. Thanks in part to the military style trend, fashionistas from Hollywood to NYC  have been sporting the ultra-popular J Brand Houlihan pant which combines the rugged look of cargos with the fit of a skinny jean.

According to The New York Times, J Brand has sold over 75,000 pairs of the pants since January and has another 40,000 pairs on backorder. Priced at $230 a pop, these pants are the perfect accessory for the rich and famous; everyone from Rihanna to Jessica Alba has been spotted in a pair.
