Lord knows I could use some softer pants. Ever since getting sucked into the wild world of raw denim, my lower half has been almost always encased in crunchy fabrics. Sometimes, I dream of a more comfortable way of life and softer pants on my legs.
The Java Cloth Charles Pant from Engineered Garments looks like the perfect answer to the crunchy pants quandary. They come in a lightweight fabric that’s perfect for summer and feature an elastic waistband for extra comfort. But by far the most interesting part of this garment is the pattern of the “Java Cloth.” This process, better known as Batik, is an Indonesian tradition that is all about negative space. Dye-resistant wax is used each time the fabric is dyed to create contrast and make intricate patterns.
So not only will you be more comfortable in the Charles Pant, but you will have a garment that celebrates an ancient and awe-inspiring textile tradition.
Available for $288 from BlackBlue.
