PLEATED PROTOLOGICAL ARCHETYPE PANTS
COLLECTORS 20TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION.
Life has a weird way of setting the tone for things long before they happen. When I arrived in the United States on January 15 2000.I was wearing a pants without side seams. The earliest feature of a recurring theme in my work.
It had a single back pocket two front pockets and a single pleat at the front. The pleat at front was not necessarily a "design" feature. It was a necessity as my skills in pattern making were not at the point where I could cut and shape a pleat less pants to fit as excellent as I do now.
Interestingly I worked on developing the PROTOLOGICAL ARCHETYPE pants with a fellow cocreator. We went our separate ways with variants and the ZB archetype became an updated variant of the pants I wore when I landed in America 20 years ago.
This pants is a celebration of 20 years of evolution. 10 years of my time in Jamaica is symbolized by the ten herringbone stitches. It has a 20 inch hand stitch detail on the leg. To celebrate my 20 years in the US. Only 10 pairs will be made. To symbolize 10 years of Zfactorie.
What a ride!
We thank everyone who has been along with us and continue to be with us on this great journey!
+ Please note that the herringbone hand stitches can be customized to a choice of white/ red / monochrome black.
