Lucky Pants

Lucky Pants

I have a soft spot for camouflage. I know it can look quite masculine at times, and often be tricky to wear, but there is something about it I love.

 The pants below are one of my favourite camo treasures. They are a one off, and I am very lucky to own them.

The pants are a first prototype design from a past season Nigel Cabourn Woman collection. I think it was Spring Summer 2015. They are a green narrow width 11oz selvedge denim on the base with an over printed British camouflage on top.  Due to the intricate and almost impossible production needs along with the expense of this pant, sadly they were never produced. Only 1 pair were ever made - and that happens to be the pair I have on.

Usually I wear much more relaxed fitting pants, but I love these and their fitted shape - they are a welcome change and create a much more femanine silhouette.

On top I am wearing a men's ecru utility jacket in selvedge cotton. This work wear style is a casual alternative to a heavy jacket, and is perfect to throw over a t shirt for summer. The shirt has side entry pockets on the right hand side as well as a button down pocket with flap on the left chest. One of my favourite details is the selvedge side seam gusset. It's attention to detail such as this that make it such a beautiful piece. 

As usual all teamed with my Birkenstocks in white.
