Anti-white after Labor Day people suck, and while I generally refuse to even engage with sartorial rules that lack a grey area, it also made some amount of sense to get out ahead of things for these Freedom Flight Pants from Good ‘Ol Whats-her-face—mostly because they’re a strong contender for Early Fall’s Best Bottoms but also because it’s after Labor Day and the aforementioned rule people are presumably waiting to pounce.
And while it’s easy to say “these pants have a story” about a lot of pants—because some of them do!—these pants have a cool story. Made entirely from vintage and repurposed canvas and end-of-production fabric otherwise destined for a landfill, each pair of these were crafted by Taral Pukklang in Nama Denim‘s workshop in Bangkok, Thailand, from start to finish, and feature straps at the waist for adjustability, six assorted pockets for maximum utility, a patchwork construction to hurt people’s feelings on the street and the baggy fit you should be hunting down this fall.
And if you’re feeling like you need any more reason to grab these, you’ll be supporting the right kind of production in the process: not only are these made from sustainable materials, but Good ‘Ol Whats-her-face is W’menswear’s line that’s dedicated to supporting their “artisan makers during difficult times.”
