As far as camo patterns go, tiger stripe stands among the most sought after for vintage fans. Combine the love of tiger stripes with denimhead fanaticism and you get Nigel Cabourn‘s 2nd Type Short Indigo Tiger Stripe.
Cabourn is always exploring the Many Worlds Interpretation of quantum mechanics as it pertains to workwear and military garb, and these shorts live in an alternate universe that not only dips the tiger stripe pattern in deep shades of indigo, but makes that pattern using a jacquard weave. The result is a camo that’s simultaneously more textured and much more subtle than the original. It’s sure to age more gracefully, too. BDU-style cargo pockets at the sides, flap pockets at the rear, and slash front hand pockets complete the compartments along with melamine buttons and adjustable waist tabs.
Made in Japan, you can find it at Lost & Found for $425CAD (~$320USD).
