Geoffrey B. Small founded his label in Boston in 1979 and has since moved his studio to a small town in Italy, where all his products are fully handmade using local techniques. He is considered one of the leading figures in the world of avant-garde and artisanal fashion. Various designers like John Alexander Skelton, Archivio J.M Ribot, Ziggy Chen or Uma Wang have been inspired by him and his designs. B. Small managed to stay out of the fashion circle and industry and works completely independent. Adding to that, he started very early to consider his environmental impact and tries to use only environmentally friendly fabrics and techniques. He was also the first in the world to present a fully recycled collection.
Geoffrey B. Small´s standard of quality is unmatched within the fashion world. His pieces are produced from the most luxurious materials, with the best techniques to create what are probably the best clothes in the world. All of this is combined with a totally unique aesthetic, which is mainly inspired by the early 20th century.
B. Small produces less than 500 unique pieces per season, all of them handmade from natural fabrics. Most of his pieces exist only five times or less and are only available with one retailer.
This specific pair of trousers features a classic pinstripe pattern and comes with braces, which is quite typical for B. Small´s look. This also goes for the slightly cropped and relaxed cut of the trousers. They have four pockets, two at the front and two at the back. Adding to that, there are also belt loops, in case one prefers to wear them without suspenders. The material is a superfine 120s Tasmanian wool with a cupro lining. As always, all buttonholes are handstitched and the buttons themself are made from real horn.
A piece like this has a retail price of approximately 2.800$.
