A pair of pants that I made for my husband’s 41st birthday! The pattern is Men’s Jeans from Pumila, a Japanese pattern shop, fitted and altered to his body. This is the fourth time I’ve made this pattern.
The fabric is grey wool blend and I think it will be perfect for fall/winter. The wrong side of the fabric is smooth and has a bit of purple tone on it. The pockets are changed back to slanted pockets as in the original pattern and the hem flared a little bit.
I was a bit worried about the fit because my husband never tried them on for fitting, it was supposed to be a surprise! Fortunately the fit was wonderful! I guess making them fourth times in a row really did pay off. My husband loves the pants, especially the slightly flared hem. He’s wearing them to work right now.
