No strangers to wallet-shriveling prices, Japan’s Freewheelers has delivered yet another enviable creation, complete with the sticker shock to match.
The Westinghouse Denim Pant is just that, a pant not a jean. While it’s made from a spring/summer-weight Japanese 12oz. 100% cotton, “military-style” denim — done with an indigo-dyed warp and a silver grey sulphur dyed weft, both of which will fade with time — it’s the construction that steers it away from jean territory.
With exaggerated button-flap pockets at the back, side-entry trouser-style pockets with vintage styled arch stitches at the front, a cinch back design, urea buttons, intricate interior construction, and a slim side pocket at the outside of one knee, you’ve got plenty of conversation material on hand.
But for this kind of money, I could also tell Alexa to order a Nintendo Switch, a copy of Mario Kart, and have it delivered all within the hour. So, there’s that.
Available at Corlection for *gulp* $495 Aussie dollars (~$390 USD).
