50% OFF: The Modern Monpe + Akimbo True Blue Size 3

The Monpe is a Japanese work pant usually worn by fieldworkers or tradesmen, popularized in the war era by villagers who had to turn their beautiful kasuri kimonos into fabric for Monpe pants to expand their freedom of movement. Distinguished by a looser, low-slung waist and a unique front to back closure, this Modern Monpe is a tailored, smarter version with an easy to wear flexible button closure and D-ring waist belt in sturdy twill. Fit for everyday commutes or longer sojourns, there’s nary a landscape we don’t see these fitting.

Seen here in the Akimbo True Blue ikat print, a warrior-goddess motif of life and birth in between modernity and nolstalgia.
