This unique striped wool's pattern is developed by removing warp yarns in specific places, creating areas that are more open. It lets the fabric retain the formal and luxurious hand of a suiting wool twill while letting it breathe in warmer weather. Here it's used in Soshiotsuki's side strap shorts, a doubled pleated short with fully tailored waistband and finishings, a piece that wears like a suit trouser in the seat and looks almost like a skirt with its voluminous pleated legs. It challenges notions of traditional formality. Extended straps at the sides combine tuxedo and bondage and sit elegantly adjacent to the slash pocket openings.
Finished with double hook and bar waist closure with additional internal waist button or an incredibly clean look that stays put. Button fly. Back welt pockets with signature "S" threading on the buttons.
