Warehouse & Co. - Lot 1221 - Army Denim Pants - Indigo
We decided to really pull out some funky pieces from Warehouse this season. We wanted the rare stuff, the stuff that everyone else was afraid to order. We were done playing it safe, and that started with this Lot 1221 Us Army Denim Pant. This was a working setup used by the U.S. Army until the 1930's. During World War II, the U.S. Army switched to using OD green herringbone twill for BDU and workwear, which is highly antitoxic and can be used as a protective color, so it was officially adopted in the 1940s (that's why you see so much more of that, than denim). It was known to be the strongest material at the time and it was worn by the CCC (Civil Conservation Corps), which was part of the New Deal policy that was enforced from the 1930s. The design of the pants itself is almost the same as the brown denim made after the First World War, and the deep rise and loose silhouette tell us that it is workwear for all purposes. We are absolutely delighted by how funky these are. We've never seen anything like them and we think they make for an impeccable styling adventure.

Fit Notes: This round is a true straight fit. Ryan is wearing a size 30 in the images. That's his typical North American size. So these fit pretty TTS. Shop owner Tommy would likely wear a 31 in these. He is 5'10," 165lbs with a 32-33" waist, and his typical North American size is a 31.
