Just Do It: DIY Project #1- Cartoon Trousers

By Will Reid on April 9th, 2009

cartooncropped.JPGWith a month long holiday in India coming up, I knew I had to get some stand-out holiday wear. I thought about the different eras of recreational wear and began racking the (fashion) history books for inspiration- jumpsuits, capri pants, high-waisted slacks, kaftans, tunics, dungarees…the list goes on. But then, as with all moments of fashion genius, America’s Next Top Model came on the telly and I was reminded of the genius that is Jeremy Scott.

As a result I was led to a picture of a friend wearing a pair of Jeremy’s cropped print trousers and I fell in love. In order to recreate the look, I bought a pair of Topman’s cartoon-print pyjama bottoms (£15) and tied bits of string around my lower legs. I then folded the pyjama fabric under the string to achieve a cropped effect.

Because the print is so loud, you should stick to basic items in muted colours. And even if you don’t get the look that you wanted, I assure you that making the trousers is almost as much fun as wearing the finished edition anyway.


What would Run-DMC think?

You cannae polish a turd and you cannae smarten a Superstar. Unfortunately that is exactly what Adidas Originals and Ronnie Fieg of David Z has tried to do with their “Black Tie” Project. The idea was to smarten up the classic Superstar and turn it into a black tie accessory in response to the recent trend in smarter dress, sadly it was a stupid idea to begin with and like most stupid ideas it has fallen flat on it’s arse with even an all black Superstar looking as appropriate with a suit as Ronnie Wood does with Ekaterina Ivanova- that’s right Ronnie, it may be legal but no one thinks it’s cool.

I have no doubt that these trainers will sell, whether you see anyone other than the three chumps in Jared Ryder’s photos wearing them with a suit is another matter entirely- for one thing try explaining to a doorman why you’re wearing Adidas with your Armani; “Not tonight lads.”
