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)
$72

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.
$36

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.
$155
