Japanese label Steteco takes inspiration from traditional 19th-century steteco pants, which were originally worn under kimonos and later suits. These olive-green shorts – designed in collaboration with Monocle and made in Japan – are a contemporary iteration crafted from breathable cotton with an elasticated waist. Pull them on for a casual day at home or a stroll in the sun.

About Steteco
Japanese brand Steteco is named after the loose shorts worn under kimonos in 19th-century Japan. The label’s founder was inspired to develop a modern version and today Steteco is known for simple, functional cotton-crepe pieces made in the same factories that would have produced its namesake. Monocle’s collaboration with Steteco brings together traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design for a capsule collection of smart-casual staples.
