I bought these pants from Mint when he visited my local H.Naoto shop a couple years ago. These were described as ‘ninja pants.’ The fabric on these is lightweight and a little rough. There are pleats to give that ballooning effect if you choose and ties to adjust the height/ballooning when tied and worn as shorts. The calf covers are removable and attach with buttons and can be zippered on and off as well, their width is adjustable by the lace up cording. The skirting fabric at the sides is a play on a traditional Japanese print, and can also be tucked under for the full black appearance. The versatility of these is really great. This item is used and shows maybe one or two tiny areas of pilling that are hard to spot. Otherwise I was not able to find any damage.
