A pair of ‘sailor’ inspired wide leg trousers, featuring back welt pockets and front pockets with button openings. I’ve made these up into shorts and LOVE how they fit. Really flattering with high waste and great details at the back with the strap.

#WHO MADE ME?
There are some brands that inspire creativity. Merchant & Mills is top on our list. Their purpose is to make (or more precisely get YOU to make) clothes, not fashion. In curating and designing patterns, fabrics and tools, they make our fingers itch to start deisgning, cutting and making. The two creators behind the brand are Carolyn Denham, who has a degree in Fashion design and has worked in New York, Italy and London and Roderick Field, a respected photographer with works in the National Portrait Gallery and keeps the look of the brand through his gorgeous product photos.
