Awhile ago I wrote about Sam’s sport pants. A lot of the stress concerning waistbands and such has lessened; cut back to a rare (but nonetheless fiery) flare up now and again. But Sam, and now Noa too, are both really still into feeling sporty in their sport pants.
They also like to feel – how shall I put it – industrious in their Carhart overalls. Real little workers. Serious, with the gear to show it. What I like about them? Double canvas on the knees! I’m tired of patching pants.
Introducing, Dutchman in Carharts:
It’s a beautiful combination, and very authentic, too. I mean, one only sees Carharts over here in skate shops, but back in Montana they are the staple at your local ranch supply store. Real workers’ clothes. And one can pick up a pair of clogs at any tourist shop over here, but the best place (and cheapest by far) is your local farm store. Because they (whether wooden or leather) are still the shoe of choice for many workers. Seeing Sam get all decked out in both makes me smile; it’s the ultimate outfit for an eager little Dutch-American worker.
So thanks, mom and dad, for sending him his new pair. They make him so happy!
