The Revised Walt Whitman Pant
The Glory of Simplicity.
If Walt Whitman wasn’t the first Bohemian, he ranks as one of the most prolific. A noted journalist, poet and writer, not to mention Civil War nurse, he certainly wasn’t one for conformity. One can imagine him, sitting in what he called his “trysting place”: Pfaff’s Manhattan beer cellar, offering responses to “Bayard’s” criticisms, or encouragement to Ada Clare. A character emulating the savage and the sensuous, Whitman’s style favored simple, but striking comfort.
Some time ago, we introduced a pair of pants any true humanist might be at home in. After a short hiatus, we’ve decided it was time for these perfectly individualistic pants to make a comeback.
The Revised Walt Whitman Pant (No. 5641). 100% cotton canvas, non-assuming 19th century working wear. Zip fly with a single metal shank button center front, and exterior suspender buttons. Welt pocket at back right. Nostalgic notched waistband at back with an adjustable belt and buckle under back waist. Wear with a belt or our 1” leather suspenders. We’ve reintroduced these in a lighter version cut to a slimmer fit; minor concessions Walt would’ve approved of. Imported
Pairs well with The Leather Galluses (No. 5743).
