Scanning for Fit with KHAITE
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?
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.
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.
