Here are some photos (as mentioned in the previous post) of the first Las Valentias mens pants.

Pants.2Three pairs in total. Brown/ivory pinstripe in wool, plaid in wool and powder blue in linen.

Suspender buttons were included in all pairs to allow the wearer a more versatile look.

Apartment #909

Oct 01 2009 Published by Las Valentias under boutiques

One of our favorite vintage stores in Toronto is called APT 909 located at 909 Dundas St. West. Sergio and I paid a visit this past week to purchase a vintage 1940’s hat made in Italy but alas, it had already been sold. While there, the boutique owner took our picture for his blog located here: http://apt909.blogspot.com

Sergio_me_smAs you can see my eyes are closed which my brother Pat tells me is the Kelly curse. What you can’t see clearly in this photo is Sergio’s pants. They are designed by him and made by Las Valentias. We’ve been getting a lot of interest in them so I will post with clearer pictures later today. It’s been a nice change to work on mens pieces – especially for someone who can wear them so well!
