Deep Seated:
Scanning for Fit with KHAITE

Skagerak bathtub

by Alexa Hotz

Pants are personal. They are just as much about how you feel in them as how you look wearing them: they’ve got to be tight in the right places and cooperative in others. Sometimes it’s a compromise, but with the right pair, you really can have it all. Here, outfitted in houndstooth tweed, leather, and denim from KHAITE, the curious woman hops up on the scanner to get a better look. How do they look from underneath?

It’s KHAITE creative director Catherine Holstein’s dedication to fit that got us here. In a pair of brown multi-tone houndstooth trousers—the Kyle—cut for Pre-Fall 2018. Inspired by the sensuous quality of late 1970s and early 1980s suiting, the collection is full of clever tailoring and tactile fabrics.
But back to the Kyle. It’s cropped just above the ankle with side-slit hems for that slim-not-tight quality you need in a trouser of this kind. A high waist (with a 12-or-so-inch rise) sits flat on the front of the body and contours around the back. What’s an on-seam side pocket do for you? Allow you to rest your hands comfortably in pockets while standing at the water cooler, but keep the whole hip region looking flattering while seated. Now let’s have a look at that single back welt pocket.
Jeans are as much about how you feel in them as you how look wearing them: they've got to be tight in the right places and cooperative in others.
A supple skin of silk-lined leather melts to the body. It’s the Roxanne and it looks as good as it feels. With a high waist of 12 inches, as before, the leather pant is sumptuous, refined, and fits like a glove. This pair is a blend of 1970s and 1980s styles. For this season, Holstein likes the idea of a woman picking and choosing eras and aesthetics to compile her own approach. You can’t see it here, but the Roxanne has a slightly flared, cropped leg. What you can see is the detailing: pockets on the hip and feminine seams rounding up the rear.

Nothing so well suits the backside as a pair of hand-finished denim with just a little stretch. Seams run along outer meridians and pockets are sized and placed just right on the seat of the jeans. (A millimeter can make all the difference.) Above, the kick flare Benny in Vintage Black Japanese cotton sits on the natural waist fastened by the KHAITE signature black enamel button.


Below, the Vanessa jean is especially slim and slimming in true blue Japanese cotton with 2-percent stretch. The result is a jean that’s both structured but pliable enough for a flattering fit. Thanks to the scanner, that 1957 invention that made its way into the workplace, here’s evidence that they’re looking good from every angle.
