Wide pants, such as painted pants and utility pants, accentuate summer fashion.
Voluminous pants that can be worn with just a T-shirt and pants are very useful.

Painter / Wide denim is often seasonal
First, denim in painters and wide silhouettes is often a seasonal collection.
Under these circumstances, we can recommend “denim that can be bought year-round” as a standard product.
Vintage updated with a modern look. Reproductions without compromising fashion.
We examine clothes with “originality” and create them. orslow designs “slow” standard clothes loved and supported by many people, such as work and military clothes, through a filter.
The brand combines vintage techniques and details with contemporary silhouettes and designs.
Painter pants made of 9-ounce denim, a standard item since 2007.
The fabric has a good feel from the one-wash and requires little time to be finished to a “cozy” look, which is a problem with vintage replicas. It is a big advantage to create a soft impression, especially since these pants are worn during the hot season.
The moderately tapered, clean silhouette is also good for fashion, making these pants useful in any situation.

U.S.NAVY Denim Utility Pants
The design is inspired by the work clothes of the U.S. Navy. The weft yarn is made of fine yarn to create a 9 oz. light-weight denim, and the yarn and weaving machine are carefully selected to create a unique unevenness.
It is made of the same 9-ounce denim as the painters, but it is lighter to wear and does not suffer from the midsummer heat.
Price: 20,790 yen

Lightly woven to the utmost limit, yet with an atmospheric, uneven feel. It is a selvedge denim with a strong denim-like presence.
New yet nostalgic, Brunavoin’s neo-basic pants are made with the hope that they will be vintage 100 years from now.
Preparation in advance is important.
If they are to be operated from this summer, it would be better to let the color fade to some extent by wearing them at home beforehand, so that they will be compatible with summer fashions.
The reason I recommend orsloe is that it does not take time to prepare this advance.
Nevertheless, each denim has its own charm, so I think it would be good to wear them home in the hot season with an eye toward next year.
