Shopping from ebay - Patagonia pants
Add these old Patagonia pants to the list of garments I'll stick to admiring from afar. They remind me of the Gramicci pants that were everywhere in the early 90s in Oregon. But when I showed them to Lesli, she immediately thought of traditional Japanese monpe pants, a simple pull-on affair once worn by farmers or merchants.
There are plenty of places to buy monpe, but for the truly ambitious, try sewing your own!
Please note that Archival does not endorse the wearing of monpe outside of a camp or home setting. And those old Gramicci pants? Leave 'em in the 90s.
