Made for low-slung waist wearing, the Monpe gives a comfortable fit with its loose silhouette. The Trikora motif is one of our signature prints, bold and monochrome in its strong angles, you'll find yourself reaching for these on the daily.
Nadia fits a US Size 4, she is 165cm tall and wears Matter Size 1.
A D-ring waist belt and three-button closure for flexibility and easy adjustability. Complete with three pockets - two aligned with the side seams, and another asymmetrically-positioned in the back.
100% medium weight cotton. Selectively bundled and dyed by hand with azo-free dyes, the threads are then handloomed. Colour and weaving variations may occur, as it is a part of its charm.
Wash separately the first few washes to prevent colour runs. After that, machine wash with similar colours. For best results, handwash cold or use delicate machine wash. Do not tumble dry. Line dry inside-out. Cool iron inside-out.
I first tried on the fit awhile back at Boutique's Fair, but wasn't sure whether I'll wear it often as I have a few pants on rotation then. Prior to the circuit breaker, MATTER released a few styles for sale and I had to get it. It feels very comfortable for the skin and I can't wait to wear them out more often.
I really love the pattern on this pair of pants, but unfortunately, the fit is really not very good. I usually wear size 1 for the other Matter pants, but even with a 1 for this, I ended up looking sloppy and fat. Will not be getting another pair of Monpes.
I've been sitting on this for ages, and finally bought a pair at this year's sale. Size 1 might disappoint petite UK 6-8 - runs large and adjustable buttons serve no purpose to secure as a result, but I made do with the d-ring belt and it's fine as long as you're not fussy.
Aside from that, it's perfect smart-casual wear for hot/humid weather and I've worn it so many times in place of jeans over just a few weeks! Hope to add more Monpe to my collection (maybe in P sizing please?)
Lovely pants that are great for casual weekends. Goes well with everything.
