Winter 08 Fashion 1 by Marcusstratus Winter 08 Fashion 1 by Marcusstratus
If you were to see me walking around Portland during the cold weather, this may be something you'd see me wearing.

I'm sporting my suede jacket (it's one of the first deviations in my gallery), some military surplus wool pants, my Tsubo shoes and some leg ties.

Key points to this fashion that make it Weerd are:
-The ties below the knee, they can be fairly tight without restricting movement. They work best on pants that are to long for you and are also rather baggy.
-The belt over the jacket, a Must! It looks best with a fairly long jacket.
-Sleeves that are quite baggy, as these are.

Dumb question, but when wearing pants with the ties below the knees, does an inner shirt tend to untuck itself a lot if the wearer is climbing steep stairs? i.e. Would the pants tend to ride down towards the knees due to the anchoring below the knees?

(Then again, you've used baggy tobi/hakama/steeplejack styles of pants so much that there would be more room to handle any repeated, sudden tugs downward. Plus the waists on such pants tend to be slightly higher and might have more "give" room. What have you found to be the case?)

BTW, I never knew that about the trick of using such belt-ties to keep long pants at a wearable size. I'm going to have to try that technique out. Thanks!

oh no, very sensible question, it's a surprise more people don't ask the like with my clothing. So these pants are extra long, intended to be worn much higher at my natural waist, not my pant line (military surplus). So when I wear them at a comfortable level and put the garter below the knee there's a few extra inches of pant fabric that actually do the opposite of what you're wondering. Instead of pulling and tugging, they keep me from tripping over the extra length and provide extra fabric to flex at the knee. Wouldn't work as well with regular length trousers.

Awesomeness like this is why I love to trek up to Portland :D The ties to shorten pants is a good idea, and I love the construction in the jacket. Probably a silly question, but did you design the pattern for it? Convertible sleeves are also a really good idea.

Thanks! Did I design this jacket? nein, it's just a comercial pattern that I altered a bit (the original pattern has it where I can't remove the sleeves and the sleeves are also linned in my version)

Aye, it's what mountain men and the like would do to their pants and sleeves. I suspect it was used to shorten the length of a garment that was too long... because that's what they do :D

that makes sense. ....and it seems these days they would come in handy too because they tend to make pants pretty long

well, no doubt it's part due to me. You'd never guess it, but from my point of view I think I'm pretty shallow. There's a very small amount of women in the world that I'd enjoy their company so much to date them.... but, they do indeed exist!

The leg ties remind me of some Native American stuff I see at re-enactments around here. Is that a skull belt buckle? lol
