These pants are midway between denim and chinos, I grabbed an extra pair for $20 on my last visit to Maine, and decided to turn them into flannel lined pants. The flannel came from pajama bottoms from a thrift store. I just finished sewing them together, but it will still be a few months before it is cold enough to wear them.
I saw a scan from a Japanese magazine where a blue blazer had patchwork panels applied to the lapels and pockets and decided to try something similar. I had a small collection of fabric scraps from old jeans, a denim shirt, some swatches of Japanese indigo fabric, some Guatemalan ikat, a bit of a blackwatch tie, and a bandana that my wife made during college. I spent the last few days stitching the scraps together and then to the jacket.
