As soon as we saw the pattern for these pants, my buddy knew he had to have them, for you won’t find these are pants in a lot of mens wardrobes.
We tried the balancing act of making a piece that would be wearable nowadays without it being to much old fashioned. Hopefully something timeless. We chose a light wool blend to keep the resemblance to tweed and did some changes from the original.
- Did some lining in front
- Changed from zipper fly to button fly
- Changed buttons on knee band to buckles
- Added more belt loops for better fit
For sure it’s not for every man to wear, but we think it turned out quite ‘up-to-date’. And if not, it’s absolutely hilarious to see peoples range of reactions… you can read more about it at my blog
