the commitment-free jodphurs

Having worn them three days in a row, I would like to present to you my favorite pants of the moment.  These Y-3 jodphurs, or ninja pants as it says on the tag, are the perfect way of wearing that “carrot” shape of trousers that the fashion world is crazy about right now without having to fully commit to them.  With zippers on the legs that allow you to play with the volume, Mr. Yamamoto gives the wearer much-needed options!
Zipped, they are jodphurs; and the structured fabric helps create volume up top.

Y-3 ninja pants worn zipped with vintage bowler hat, Zara cardigan, Casio watch and studded cuff from Japan, Margiela sneakers
Unzip the legs, and they become looser-fitting flood-length pants.  Perfect for days when you want to be comfortable without looking too conventional.

    Ninja pants…that’s pretty funny. Zipper is a great idea. I’m also in the market for pants like these. I’ve never bought anything from Y-3 I will definitely need to start looking around more.

    p.s.-I subscribe to i-D magazine. You are pretty much the only men’s blog that I read so I thought you might want to hear that this month’s issue is all about men. So far so great.

    Hi. I hope you don’t mind if I ask how much you got the pants for at homme et femme. Wanted to get myself one but I’m currently on a budget… Thanks!

    retailromeo: I got them for about Php6000, if I remember it right. I’m afraid they were the last pair though. But do check out the store, they still have items on sale!
