Boardwalk Britches Grosgrain Giveaway CLOSED

May 21, 2010

I thought of these little pants while in between sleep and consciousness. I've surprisingly gotten a few of my ideas this way. Not surprisingly, it tends to happen after I've been looking at clothes all day.

These are usually referred to as 'sailor pants'. They open on either side creating a sort of 'flap' in the front. The bottom of the legs are wide creating a 'trouser' look. Finally, I added a thick navy trim bias tape to the cuffs.

I used a navy seersucker material and dark navy buttons.

When put together, I think the look is so classic and nautical, hence the name.
