…this pair of yellow, green and black paint-splattered elastic-waistband athletic pants by Filipino designer Jeffrey Rogador.
They were on sale and I had the crazy idea of channeling some sort of a Dries Van Noten SS 08 feel by wearing them as boxing shorts, with my shirt tucked in.
I’m SURE they won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but at the sale price, I decided to throw caution to the wind. Plus, I have quite an affinity for paint-splattered fabric.
For blogging purposes, I rolled them up to shorts length, although I intend on having them hemmed.
And here they are worn:
AA t-shirt, Margiela necklace, Jeffrey Rogador pants worn as shorts, Casio calculator watch, Muji plimsolls
As full-length pants, I fear it might be way too much paint-splattered fabric, so hemming them into shorts would make them more wearable. But once they’re cut, there’s no turning back. So what do you think, hem them short or not?
