Whatever name you want to call it by, collegiate, preppy, ivy, and so on, this particular strain of classic, American casual style has been an integral part of modern, Japanese fashion for decades.
It’s true, in the most general sense, that Tokyo based label The Nerdys are riffing on this established style, but that level of generality doesn’t do justice to the thought behind every, individual piece bearing the Nerdys name. The down to the last detail level of meticulous construction is approached in the spirit of high profile nerd icons like the Talking Heads or Wes Anderson. The Nerdys operates with the same sense of understanding that the deliberate choice to not engage with the ever shifting winds of officially designated cool constitutes its own form of social and sartorial, individualist rebellion. This hyper-self awareness about the implications of nerdom is reflected in the tongue-in-cheek twists and turns that The Nerdys apply to timeless styles.
High-waisted pants made from the finest lamb wool. The fabric uses a deep check of heather using extremely long hair that was cut at the age of 9 months. Featuring a minimalist design, the pockets are made up of darts from the side, making the pants simple yet mature. The loose silhouette created through repeated research uses a high waist that allows the inner to be inserted, and the placket is fastened only with a bar and caulking without stitching. You can wear it warmly even in the middle of winter because it is a well-made fabric.
