Boots Miz Mooz
It’s been a while since I reviewed my first piece from the Lithuanian fashion company Lagamta, but I mentioned in my previous post that I’d also received a pair of custom-sized trousers. These are them, the “Frostbitten” wool trousers.
Like my Fireside dress, it’s been made beautifully from a herringbone wool blend. Also like the dress, the trousers are unlined, so I’ve layered them over a pair of tights.
They’re a cunning cut, based on a pair of traditional riding breeches, with deep pockets and pleated folds at the hips which create a bit of a draped effect.
The legs are tapered, and the designers give each size a corresponding calf measurement (hurrah!) and add on their blog post that if your measurement exceeded that, then they would alter the fit accordingly.
I think they’re a style that probably would suit a taller lady better than they do me, but there’s a nice country-casual feel to them. I wore them on my trip down to Rye a few weeks ago, and they felt like the perfect weekend wear for tramping around the countryside, then curling up in front of a wood stove in the evening with a mug of hot chocolate.
