Though often said to incorporate Americana influenced designs into a contemporary idiom via traditional Japanese textiles and design principles, recent collections from Needles founder Keizo Shimizu reach to mid-twentieth century Britain as much as early 20th century America. Blending silhouettes from military and sporting domains with an array of pop-cultural influences, recognisable and obscure alike, a final Needles garment is defined by an inspired hybridity.
The Needles M’ H.D. Fatigue Pant displays this hybrid imagination at work. Evidently based on military fatigues, Needles literally blow out the style beyond its utilitarian origins. The H.D. Fatigue Pant—here in the navy colourway—features a unique oversized, wide-leg shape structured by the darting details arising from the cuffs and descending from the waist, lending the pant a tapered shape.
Constructed from hardwearing, heavyweight cotton fabric, this pant also features rear welt pockets with flap and button closure; side slant pockets; zip fly and button closure; and an adjustable drawstring at the waist with toggles.
Smaller sizes of this style are available here.
Made in Japan from 100% cotton.
