You can’t get more authentic than a pair of khakis re-fashioned from tents used in World War II.

The ‘Bivvy’ trousers, which take recycling to a new and exctiting level, were developed when two designers went hunting in an old warehouse for ideas: ‘After many attempts to find the perfect recycled material, we finally found a pair of World War II era Bivouac tents languishing in a dusty warehouse. Luckily they make fantastic trousers and because they are individually cut and sewn each pair is unique.’ Snap them up for £65 at Stabo For more recycled eco goodness visit Hippyshopper.
