Lapstone & Hammer and N. Sheikh have teamed up again, repurposing vintage military wear into a new summer staple on the N. Sheikh x Lapstone "Hidden Gems" Short. The longtime collaborative partners are using vintage made-in-the-USA military issue BDU (Battle Dress Uniforms) pants in two camo patterns, woodland and desert, as the basis of this project, removing cargo pockets and cutting off the legs to make 8" shorts with a raw edge that hits just above the knee.
The shorts really come alive with the addition of vintage, '70s-era multi-color gemstone appliqués covering the right front leg, brightly contrasting with the earthy camo tones. They also feature a button fly, adjustable waist tabs and belt loops, double-stitch seam construction, reinforced seat, side pockets, button down back pockets and co-branded patch on the back waist.
