18 East and Standard Issue Tees have established a close working relationship in years past, releasing everything from sweatsuits to thermals and more. The two brands are so familiar, in fact, that Standard Issue Tees co-founder Jimmy Gorecki was even featured in 18 East’s edition of Stay Home Snaps. Now, the two entities have linked up once again to create the new Gorecki Cargo, a versatile pant that 18 East founder Antonio Ciongoli named after Gorecki himself.
Drawing inspiration from M65 BDUs and Thai fishing pants alike, the Gorecki Cargo is simultaneously relaxed and rugged. It’s done up in a military-style olive green shade and also boasts gold co-branded embroidery on the left leg’s cargo pocket. Knee panels are articulated for mobility and a reinforced seat provides a hard-wearing, soft-feeling build. Waist and ankle drawstrings provide an adjustable fit while an asymmetrical crossover fly completes the look. “I’m still blown away that [Cignoli] named these pants after me,” says Gorecki while discussing the collaboration.
The 18 East x Standard Issue Tees Gorecki Cargo will release via the Standard Issue Tees webstore at 10 AM PST on February 18. The MSRP is set at $148 USD.
