One size fits most (up to 54" waist and any height) in the plant-based vegan organic hemp Thai fishermans pants. These all natural organic casual hemp beach pants are approximately 40" long top to bottom (but many inches of that will be folded over the waist tie) and may be worn at any length, short or long (folks normally requiring 36" or 38" inseam will either wear them really low or wear them as clam diggers' pants or select the extra-long option). Tie the waist satchel as low or high as you want.
Our chemical-free organic hemp Thai fihserman's pants for men and women are great as organic pyjamas, for pregnant women, and for Tai Chi, Qi Gong, meditation, and yoga, too.
Sweatshop-free. Made in Europe.
Basic wearing instructions:
Pull the pants on (with the two waist ties on the backside) until the bottom of the pants is a little above the floor. Either wrap the pants right, then left, or vice versa, or distribute the folds in the front or back so that the pants are snug against the waist. Keep holding the pants up; bring the two strings forward and tie them in the front. Then roll the top fabric over the tied strings. Of course, you can experiment with different ways of wrapping and distributing the folds and different heights at which you tie the strings to create your signature look. You can wear them as low on the hips as suits you and how high up you wear them in the legs is up to you and for what purpose you need them for. For yoga and Tai Chi practice and pajamas, you'd wear them on the short side for ease of movement. For casual wearing you'd wear them a little longer. Really tall people would wear them as long shorts or even shorts: it's all fine. That's the great thing about these versatile pants. Wear them how it suits you at the moment.
It may take a bit of experimenting (it's part of the fun) to find just the right folds and tucks that work for you — we offer basic wearing instructions further below only as a preliminary guide to get you started. The Organic Cotton Thai Fisherman's Pants and Hemp Fisherman's Pants may appear very baggy at first but with the right tuck, you'll find out why these simple pants have been so popular for so long and won the hearts of so many converts the world over. They weren't originally made to be trendy, but like most classic clothing items that have become mainstream due to comfort and practical & efficient design, the Thai Fisherman's Pants have entered the rarefied realm of "really cool" clothing.
Outside of casual wearing and yoga, meditation, and Tai Chi practice, you can wear your Organic Cotton or Hemp Thai Fisherman's Pants as house pants and pajama bottoms. That's what people routinely do in Thai. Men, especially, usually have a few pairs for wearing around the house and to use as pajama bottoms.
A customer recently told us that the Thai Fisherman's Pants have become the "uniform" that all stylists wear at one of the trendiest hair salons in Amsterdam. Men and women love them because they are so simple to put on and allow for ease of movement, whether you're doing kick boxing, beach combing, practicing T'ai Chi, yoga, or meditation, or just lounging & relaxing. (An aside to men: no fly on the Thai Fishermen's Pants but none is needed; the Thai men traditionally just roll the wide legs up for easy access.)
Although traditionally worn as part of a casual setup, the Hemp Thai Fisherman's Pants have recently been turned into designer items with different patterns printed onto the sides of the pants, etc... Your imagination is the limit: wear them urban-dressy or casual-cool, it's up to you. And if you know a bit about screen printing, well, you'll have lots of fun churning out your own unique design statements.
"Simplicity and Fairness: Simple living is less violent and less exploitative. When we live in complexity, our needs are so great in terms of energy and material goods that we live at the expense of others. As we simplify our homes, our clothes, and our eating habits, not only is less work needed to supply us but also less effort to maintain our way of life, as well."
"As the people of the world who are now exploited begin to get a fair return for their labor, prices will rise. We must expect this and be willing to pay the costs, otherwise we are hypocrites of the first water, wanting the world's people to be well off yet still insisting that our bananas be cheap. When the people picking the bananas in Honduras, tapping the rubber trees in Malaysia, mining tin in Bolivia, and making shoes in Brazil get the same return for their labor that we do, our bananas and boots and tires and tin (and fair trade clothing—ed.) will cost more."
