PEQUENO DICIONÁRIO ILUSTRADO DE MODA gurkha

Já que falamos de dhoti X sarouel X harem = calça folgada com cavalo baixo, aqui vai o post do NYT sobre gurkha pants!

(ele escreveu com o H entre o G e o U, mas é entre o K e o A)

Novas formas de calça estão no ar - é bom para desafiar a ditadura da alfaiataria. Democracia de shapes!!!!

Feeling For … Ghurka Pants
By Bruce Pask

Bruce Pask, T Magazine’s men’s fashion director, writes on style every two weeks.

It’s not some obscure fashion-speak term — and I’m not going to get into a history lesson, because I’m sure we could go on. Basically, Ghurka pants (and shorts) were a staple in British colonial men’s wardrobes abroad, especially in North Africa and India. Usually made of substantial cotton khaki twill, these pants featured a higher waistband with side buckles for two tabs; one slipped inside the other to fasten. Early Banana Republic catalogs (from the era when the stores were decorated with Jeeps and trees and the brand was more about urban safari outfits than pre-career and casual wardrobes) featured Ghurkas as a basic. Now, they are back. At Pitti Uomo, the Japanese-designed line Haversack had them, making a boring khaki trouser look really interesting and, shockingly, even fashion-y. Color me khaki, but I’m feeling for a Ghurka pant!

E não é que a aula Saruel x Dhoti tem se desdobrado? Adorei o complemento.
Tem um site em que possível ver os detalhes da peça com mais precisão. http://jlpowellusa.com/product/39-Pants/114-J-L-Powell-Linen-Ghurka-Short.html
