Himel imagined an American rebel; a soldier, imprisoned by his own side for going A.W.O.L. in the Asian-Pacific theatre. His clothing in the stockade would include a pair of hard-wearing pants, single-needle tailored, stenciled. Recreated from an original pair in the Himel Bros. Archive, we have maintained the authentic high waist, long rise, and wider leg of the original WWII style, with a subtle taper towards the boot.
Every pair is single-needle stitched with authentic Reece 101 keyhole buttonholes. Each pair comes complete with a custom-stamped Grizzly Moon Himel Bros. tag, and a hand-stenciled spec date and F.T.W., expected to wear off with washing. Stencil expected to be somewhat irregular.
Currently preselling until November 18th, 2019. We expect shipping to take place in December. First-run pants will not be available after the 18th.
The khaki version is made from a 10oz chambray, with a lovely, stiff denim feel. Impenetrable to mosquitos and sharp sticks, this chambray has an incredible character that folds and forms almost like leather. Each pair comes in an extra long 36 inch length, designed with felled seams to be cuffed or hemmed. This chambray has been field-tested by Himel himself in the Canadian wilderness. Super-durable, it will become faded and develop character with age.
The denim version is made with a 12oz Japanese Kuroki denim. The outseam is left unfelled to display the selvedge ID of the indigo-dyed left-hand twill. Denim will fade and develop patina with time, and indigo may transfer to light coloured clothing and furniture.
