Taiga Takahashi Engineer Trousers Beige, premium heritage workpants from the archives of Taiga Takahashi.

 The engineer pants are inspired by the workpants in the 1940s. Because the fabrics at the time were not durable enough to withstand hard labor, each pocket opening is reinforced with a patch equivalent to rivets in jeans. The high-rise pants have a wide silhouette from the thighs to the hems.

The original dense west-point fabric (=uniform twill), woven on an old-type power loom, is used. West-point fabric (=uniform twill), a kind of chino cloth, derives its name from uniforms of the United States Military Academy West Point. Using two ply fine combed cotton yarn thinner than regular chino cloth, the dense and glossy high quality fabric is said to be originally made for senior officers’ uniforms. The original nut buttons are made of natural coconut shell, noted for its soft and warm quality.

T.T is a unisex brand based in New York and Kyoto. Taiga Takahashi, the founder and designer, underwent an education that merged Japanese culture with Western thought. After graduating from Central Saint Martins(UAL) in 2017, he established his own brand in New York. The designer himself had collected over thousands of garments since his teens, most of which are American vintage from the 1920s to 1950s, focusing on the pre-mass production era. Believing that the true value of craftsmanship already exists in history, the fabrics, sewing and details of time-survived garments are researched from an archaeological perspective, reinterpreted in a new way and brought back to life in the modern age. 
In April 2022, at the young age of 27, Taiga Takahashi embarked on an eternal journey in the middle of his ambition. However, his legacy has been transformed into the thoughts of the team that supported him during his lifetime and continues to be passed down, now and in the future.
