Whatever name you want to call it by, collegiate, preppy, ivy, and so on, this particular strain of classic, American casual style has been an integral part of modern, Japanese fashion for decades.
It’s true, in the most general sense, that Tokyo based label The Nerdys are riffing on this established style, but that level of generality doesn’t do justice to the thought behind every, individual piece bearing the Nerdys name. The down to the last detail level of meticulous construction is approached in the spirit of high profile nerd icons like the Talking Heads or Wes Anderson. The Nerdys operates with the same sense of understanding that the deliberate choice to not engage with the ever shifting winds of officially designated cool constitutes its own form of social and sartorial, individualist rebellion. This hyper-self awareness about the implications of nerdom is reflected in the tongue-in-cheek twists and turns that The Nerdys apply to timeless styles.
How to be nerdy with the Changeover Pants: Go ultra-functional. Pair them with sensible, comfortable running shoes, preferably in all-white or grey, if you're old school, or athletic performance silver if you have more contemporary tastes. Maybe wear a climate controlling tech top, and definitely get a fanny pack and fill it with only the most practical miscellaneous item you can carry. Be the person who is prepared for any eventuality, even though there are four different chain drugstore locations within walking distance of your current location.
