The Tokyo pant is a casual alternative to our signature Westpoint Twill Chino. Developed with input from Japan, our newest staple balances a longer rise and roomier thigh with a tapered lower leg.
Made from pigment dyed twill for a washed out look, the Tokyo pant also features military-style flap pockets, rugged three-needle chainstitching and custom brogue buttons throughout.
The Tokyo pant is available now in Blue, Grey and Tan, while Spring/Summer’s second delivery also includes an overdyed Charcoal Splash Camouflage colourway. Shop online, or in-store at the wings+horns retail showroom and stockists worldwide.
The first delivery of wings+horns Spring/Summer 2014 is available now. Among the latest arrivals are short and long sleeve shirts, a two-button blazer and slim-fit shorts, all made from a custom Japanese ‘patchwork sashiko’ fabric.
Sashiko is a form of functional embroidery which originated in 17th century Japan, and until the 1950’s it was the traditional method of making and repairing workwear for fishermen and farmers throughout the country.
Indigo patchwork sashiko shirts feature three needle chainstitching and mother of pearl buttons, while the two-button blazer is fully lined with chambray and accented by real bone buttons throughout. Slim-fit shorts are cut above the knee, and also feature real bone buttons on the fly, waistband and pockets.
Brent Comber is an artist and designer based in North Vancouver, BC. Working with fallen trees and industrial cast offs, he has created furniture, art and installations throughout the world, with much of his work finding its home in Canada and Japan.
Last year Comber built four scorched Shattered squares for the wing+horns retail showroom, and in December we sat down with him for an interview which appears in our Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook. In this special online supplement, Comber recounts carving his first benches, visions of his grandfather, and the moment he knew he’d found his path.
