Good evening. This is Ikeda.
When my niece and nephew were on their way home, I had a somewhat relaxed feeling, but now that they're home, I'm driving normally.
Why does the atmosphere of a space change so much just by the presence of a child?
The power of little kids cannot be underestimated.
Although I am no longer able to relax with my nieces and nephews, there is a kindergarten right in front of me, so I can feel relaxed when it is time for my little ones to go home.
You can get a glimpse of the free spirit of a small child, as they talk about dinner while riding a mama's bike, or complain about not wanting to ride a mama's bike.
It may be an important presence that brings liveliness to a quiet street.
Even if it's not as good as a little child, I want to be a person who can make people feel at least a little warm, so today I would like to introduce INNAT's CARGO TROUSER, which has a warm element.
Cargo pants and warm feeling may seem to be at the opposite end of the spectrum, but don't worry about it.
First of all, the design source is the Swedish military's M59 from the 1960s to 1980s.
I feel like I've been seeing more and more M59s at second-hand clothing stores lately, but what do you think?
I didn't know anything about it, but I heard at an exhibition that a certain popular actor wore it as a costume on a TV show or something, and that's why it became so popular.
I feel an extraordinary desire to research even the costumes of the fans.
The basic design is M59, but the waist has an unusual specification.
Of course it has belt loops, but if you look inside you'll see flat elastic and buttons.
It is also an easy specification that can be adjusted using this flat rubber and buttons.
This specification is often used in children's clothing.
You may know this if you have children.
I could feel designer Tani's kindness as a father in the way he incorporated the specifications of children's clothing, and it really warmed my heart.
The person who originally came up with this design must have thought carefully about how to make it easier for children to wear, and when I think about it, I feel warmed by the kindness of that person.
The belt loop on one side is not just a belt loop, but has two tiers.
The reason is that Mr. Tani suggested that you wear it with a narrow belt.
There are two stages to prevent the narrow belt from slipping.
You can feel Mr. Tani's kindness in the specifications, paying attention to even the smallest details, and it's heartwarming.
The material is weather cloth developed for military uniforms.
It's not just a weather cloth, it's a slightly stiff weather cloth with Omi bleaching process, which is slowly kneaded to loosen it up.
By doing so, we achieve a fabric with fullness and natural grain.
Since it is a weather cloth, it also has functionality such as waterproofness and durability.
The silhouette is clean and tapered, unlike cargo pants such as M65 and M51.
There are buttons at the hem, so you can tighten it tightly to emphasize your silhouette.
For someone like me who wears thick pants all the time, it feels kind of refreshing.
Two colors are selected: Khaki and Sumikuro.
Although it is called Khaki, it is not a color like The Military, but has a pale color and a gentle atmosphere.
Sumikuro has a faded feel that looks like it's been worn out, which is typical of INNAT, and it even feels stable.
For dyeing, botanical hybrid dyeing is used.
Come to think of it, it's strange how I feel warm not only when I see little children, but also when I see grandfathers and grandmothers.
Please try INNAT's CARGO TROUSER, which is gentle and makes you feel warm.
