The Camo Story

The Camo Story

Luckily for me, with my job I get to wear and collect some incredible clothes. Some of which have pretty amazing craft and design behind them.

For today's look I was in one of my favourite pair of pants. The Nigel Cabourn Woman, camo army pant. A British Army Camo design, from WW2, printed onto green Japanese selvedge denim, these are pretty special.

They are a little too big for me so I use some rope with a toggle on the end as a make shift belt - which is slightly hill billy chic, but does the job of saving my modesty very well.

I wore the pants with a man's mainline Nigel Cabourn t shirt that I picked up in the Army Gym Store, Tokyo. Again, it is slightly too big, so I roll the sleeves up and tuck it into the back of the pants, which gives a relaxed look. I have teamed the outfit with my Yuketen Blucher Moccasin shoes. These are probably one of the most beautiful shoes I've ever owned. They are hand stitched with a leather upper and lining. Made in USA, these shoes are incredibly comfortable.  They have leather tucks and steel shank reinforcements that offer a better fit for the arch, which not only makes them kind to feet but also feels like you are bouncing along when wearing them, I love it!  These were again picked up in the Army Gym Store in Naka-Meguro.
