Just as all of TCB’s denim offering is informed by menswear history, the Crawling Pants are a venture into vintage military wear inspired by the herringbone twill monkey pants worn by the USMC in the 1940’s. The Frog Skin Camo print can be traced back to an Army expedition during WWII in Germany, but it was immediately discontinued after an American soldier confused one of his own comrades for a German–whose army’s uniforms looked similar to the American uniform–and ended up killing the fellow soldier.
This camo print is called Frog Skin because allegedly it was believed that soldiers looked like frogs when they swam onto land during the Normany Invasion. (For whatever reason in Japan it’s called Duck Hunter Camo). After washing the fabric, the twill pattern–which creates a more pliable material with better drapability, wrinkle resistance, and durability than plain-woven fabric–will become more visible and gradually begin to age with wear.
The design is based on 40's USMC M-44 trousers
