We return to one our favorite mills in Japan that is dedicated to recreating the most iconic military fabrics from around the world and take it in a new direction by pairing it with our classic Jogger. These are the US Army OG107 Repro Joggers.
Labeled the OG-107, this was a staple US Army fabric for uniforms starting around 1964. OG-107 refers to the color Olive Green 107 (one color on offer today). Like the original, this repro version is a 100% cotton sateen fabric. Dense with an almost leathery hand, this fabric is both tough and comfortable. There is a smooth velvety feel to the surface that characterizes the sateen weave. When you're wearing these joggers, it feels like a throwback garment. Rugged, honest, ready to work hard. It's a perfect match for our Jogger which is truly about form meeting function.
Sometimes we yield to comfort. Maybe it’s just a really hot day and you want something easy and breathable. Maybe it’s a hike. Maybe you’re finally getting around to the list of things you’ve put off for 6 months that always end up being harder than you thought. Maybe you just want sheer comfort. That’s when we reach for these new joggers. The combination of casual and formal blends together perfectly to create a pant you can relax in and actually venture out in. The casual comes from the elastic waistband and cuffs, lending both informality and ease. No belts, no worries about exact waist size. They move to accommodate you. Against that casual backdrop come more refined touches such as the slash front pockets and one welt back pocket. Fabric adds more character and versatility, in this case our favorite linen chambray. Big texture and rich color.
