Inspirations: Sahara Suit and Snakeproof Boots!

August 21st, 2012 by Fitz, Inspirations, 0 Comments

From the pages of a 1993 International Male catalog comes the fantastic sahara suit and boots look. I could definitely see myself wearing this, especially on the playa at Burning Man.

Here are the descriptions:

Sahara Suit
The classic ramie/rayon suit of the civilized adventure…a man beneath a pith helmet living out long, dusty railway journeys between French foreign legion outposts. It’s a look that captures the strange, dream-like glamor of 40′s Tangiers, a time and place of fashionable escapism when life was borne along on the scented desert winds, a serious romantic endeavor at all times.

Of course the jacket features that fashion staple of the 80′s: shoulder pads.

The Jacket
Defining shoulder pads, a self belt, plenty of pockets outside plus an in interior pocket. Fully lined. Imported. Beige or Navy (not shown)

Pleated pants were also all the rage.

The Pant
Deep reverse pleats off a Hollywood waist with stitched-down detailing down each leg. Besom pockets, plus one besom pocket in back. The fit is body-conscious: snug in the seat and very narrow in the legs. Imported. Beige or Navy.

I really do like these boots. They’d be great at Burning Man.

Snakeproof Riding Boot
Tall and stately, our 17″ high boot gives you one advantage along with true style: it’s snakeproof! The top, in rich brown Cordura nylon, protects against everything from vipers to rattles. The vamp and trip are full grain, oil-tanning gunstock leather. Inside, the comfort of pure leather linings. Chippewa neocrepe sole cushions your every step. Adjustable strops on top and across instep. Made in USA. Brown.
