The new arrivals are rolling out monthly at Martin + Osa's online shop and they just started offering both a pair of selvedge denim (washed, 12.5 oz) and chinos featuring a back buckle or cinch. As far as I am concerned that is a pretty serious detail especially from such a mainstream brand. I'm not the biggest fan of the back buckle myself, but I know a lot of archival and workwear geeks love that kind of stuff. While the pants are still of the unfortunate pre-destroyed nature, they look quite good and are decent bargains when you consider all the details (I have also heard pretty good things about their fit). My own personal sentiments aside, I think it's admirable that Martin + Osa is taking a big step forward with their designs. I could really care less about the name on the label as long as the garments are slick - at the end of the day garments should speak for themselves anyhow. I would be lying if I said I wasn't eagerly awaiting all the cool and affordable stuff Martin + Osa seemingly have lined up for the nice weather ahead.
