Drigo's perspective

By Samsara - Tuesday, March 01, 2011

As a youth one of the fashionable articles of clothing was a gun dung pants. This is when the leg is tapered to fit and the bottom of the jeans is smaller giving a snug fit to showcase your shoes.
This was made popular by the punk rock/Dub-ska heads of the 70s. They coined it pipers and in the mid 80's was a statement worn with Bally shoes or Travelfox by the 80s generation.
Because I came from a family that not only respected craftsmanship, we also knew and supported many as well. Samiel's mom was a seamstress and she taught Samiel how to turn ordinary Levi's into works of art. I remember having 2-tone, 3-tone and even 5tone Levis with the gun dung at the bottom. I think I was in maybe 5thgrade at the time and Samiel was in 8th or 9th when we began to experiment with the machine. At that time, I did not realize it but I had only wanted to learn how to sew so that I would not only have a detailed pair of jeans, but because I wanted something original and handcrafted.
