Maneuver of the day

Maneuver of the day

---------------------------------

Here are our BDU type cargo pants, cut in a very tight canvas fabric, waterproof treated, weighing 296 g/m², made of 86% cotton and 4% wool. We applied manual surface aging to it, as well as a so-called stone wash effect using ozone.

---------------------------------

Composition: 86% cotton, 4% wool

Made in Morocco


A carrot cut, slightly wide at the thighs, para-puff pockets, closed with a flap and two natural corozo buttons on each side. We have developed a finish to hide the button and make it easier to open and close, without ever showing the button.
Systematically take a larger size, because this product has an adjusted fit.

At the end of the 19th century, US soldiers wore khaki pants. The first version of the cargo pants cut its teeth during the Spanish-American War. Like jeans in their early days, they are real work clothes that are as solid as they are inexpensive. The inspiration is military, the term BDU, Battle Dress Uniform, designates the American combat pants of the 80s. Here they are brought up to date, CDM style and pacified for urban fashion use.

NEO VINTAGE CARGO

Initially military clothing, chinos and cargo pants have become wardrobe essentials in the "Ivy" style, a BCBG student style born in the United States.
The problem with vintage cargo and chinos is that they have a straight, loose and puffy cut. Originally, it was worn inserted in high boots; hence the presence of the lace towards the hem to tighten it. However, this cut displeases some people, so we wanted to make some changes. We have tapered it and tightened it down to suit as many body types as possible.

HOW TO WEAR IT?

There are a thousand ways to wear cargo pants. However, they are best worn with functional pieces or utilitarian jackets, such as work jackets, for example, with patterned knits or cable knit wool sweaters, with military style t-shirts: assembly is then perfect. It's the winning combination. As for the bottom, with paraboots - a brand we love - or especially sneakers. Fans of the latter will be able to find a detail hidden under the hem once rolled up, which will undoubtedly enhance your outfit and even refine your silhouette.

AN EYE FOR AN EYE

Under the hem once rolled up, which will undoubtedly enhance your outfit and even refine your silhouette. We sewed two buttonholes for the lace passage; they are functional if ever.

AN AIR OF TECHWEAR

The first chinos were dyed in India with blackberry juice which gives greenish and khaki hues. Moreover, a rendering close to khaki was able to camouflage the soldiers of the British army with the targeted environment. As for ours, it's not blackberry juice. However, it is indeed khaki, navy-indigo and black, which we have aged to obtain a vintage patina on each piece. In addition, we have added a waterproofing treatment against light showers or stains.

THE BDU IS ITS POCKETS

There are three different types of buttoning for the BDU: Velcro, which is the least expensive finish; the metal snap button; sewn four-hole buttons, which can be found in several military wardrobes. In some versions, you can only see a breakpoint on both ends, which is more economical. Our pants, in addition to their corozo buttoning keeping the volume blown like a real military pocket, also have a double placket to hide the button, and thus facilitate the unbuttoning of the pocket on the thighs and back. On the left leg, we placed a small pocket to slip your smartphone or more if you like.

ECO-WASH

The canvas material is specially designed for this bdu, whose look is that of ninja pants. We have added 4% wool for more warmth in winter, this blend bringing softness to the fiber. After which, we aged the pants, to winnow it, added abrasions on the tops of pockets and mustaches on the thighs by means of a laser. The stone wash is made with ozone, an ecological treatment, without chemicals in Morocco. Check out the process we used for pants.

MILITARY SURPLUS

These pants have undergone a surface treatment to to waterproof matter. However, remember that it is neither nylon nor polyester. The latter helps the material to be water repellent; this not being eternal, the effect fades over time and washes. Designed and adapted to city use, the cut is perfectly thought out to suit the greatest number of you, especially thanks to its cut half chino , mid-parra .

Besides, we've added a tab to adjust it in case you've gone for a larger size – if that's the style you're after. The opening is tapered and stopped at 17.5 cm: the idea is to reproduce the same pattern of real purchased pants, in a surplus that you take to be recut at the local dressmaker. This is the purpose of this maneuver .
