After seeing a man wearing these trousers on the subway in New York. I felt I should recreate them as best I could.

Whether it was a bold statement of patriotism, a sort of ‘fuck you America’, or merely a convenient way of mending a broken zipper, we know he took the decision to sew an American eagle flying before an American flag over his crotch, and somehow this seems important.
