Gardening infused utilitarian menswear? Yeah, of course, it’s Japanese. Back in 2004, Japanese gardening enthusiasts Sassafras (also a species of tree found in North America and Asia) sprouted onto the scene with their unique take on workwear, tweaking some classics with their own green fingers. Takashi Takagi takes inspiration from workwear and military styles, resulting in garments that have gardening and connecting with nature in mind.
More understated and muted than Engineered Garments or a Battenwear, Sassafras garments have a grounding and subtlety that singles them out in a crowded marketplace. Here we have the Digs Crew Pant 4/5 in Olive, taking the shape and functionality of a classic pair of military fatigues.
Made from 100% cotton and made in Japan, the Digs Crew Pant is a loose-fitting and relaxed silhouette in a cropped cut. With multiple pockets for all your necessaries and tab adjusters at the hem, they’re perfect for potting cactus inside your Brooklyn apartment.
