“You can never have too many pairs of green pants” is a quote of mine that comes out fairly regularly. I’m either acting as the bad influence to a homie debating a new purchase or repeating it like a mantra to myself to justify copping another pair.
They’ve become a staple item in my “uniform” which is a good segue into introducing the Lot.1217 M-42 U.S Army HBT Pants from Warehouse & Co. Part of their uniform reproduction series, also featuring the Lot. 2162 M-42 U.S Army Jacket, both were first introduced in the 40s and formed the initial battle dress uniform—or BDU as it’s more commonly known—for the U.S Army.
Cut in Japan from 100% cotton, the Lot. 1217 comes in an intricate herringbone twill that has been washed once and sulfur dyed. Featuring a high rise, wide leg, a roomy top block, two side and rear pockets, a high coin pocket, and finished with a 13 star tack button fly, these are a perfect way to inject sometime-honored military steez into your civilian loadout.
