Resembling the typical pinstripe pattern of a classic menswear piece, the all-time favourite Hairline Stripe is now back in our signature Sideswept Dhoti. Comfortably chic with a touch of effortless modernity, this piece is the perfect addition to your wardrobe for long days and longer nights.
Model is a US Size 4, wears Matter Size 1. 174cm tall.
Wrap around the waist or hip for a snug final fit. Elegant and effortless, the gentle folds from the side pocket are balanced with side darts to give a skimming effect.
100% light weight cotton. Soft and breathable. Colour and weaving variations may occur, part of the charm of handloomed fabrics.
Changes in colour and structure with exposure to natural surroundings, washing or wearing may occur.
Wash separately in 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.
Sideswept dhoti is my favourite style! It's so timeless and matches with almost everything - Tees, crop tops, shirts etc. Love it!
I wrote a previous review about much I loved these pants, but, unfortunately, I have to change it. Within two months of casual wear (I washed them maybe three times. All gentle handwashing) the fabric at the seams of the legs started to pull apart. I sewed this up, but now the seam on the butt is doing the same thing. It is easy enough to mend, but I expected them to last longer for the price.
I could not be more excited about these pants. I am 5'4 (163 cm) and a typical US size 8 and I bought a size 2. I have shorter muscular legs and a long torso and these pants are so flattering. I love the way they fit and how the fabric feels, and they are so comfortable. The shipping was faster than expected taking only 6 days instead of 10-14 in the US. Overall I love these and will be wearing them with everything and everywhere.
The Sideswept Dhoti + Hairline Stripe
The fabric was really beautiful, but the piece in general fit me really strange. I didn't realize there was such a big unpractical pocket that just made one hip look bigger than the other. I have larger hips in general and the pocket really accentuated that. When I tried to return, I found out it was going to cost $68 just to send back to Singapore which was even more frustrating! I didn't realize it was being shipped from SIngapore. If I would have known that, I don't think I would have taken the risk. I'm a capsule wardrobe blogger and have been hearing about Matter Prints for about a year now. I find it wasteful not to be able to do anything with this piece of clothing. In addition, I don't think it's sustainable to buy from so far away. The only way I would shop for your clothes in the future would be by locating a local boutique that carried your pieces that way I could try them on myself, rather than taking the risk of buying online all the way from Singapore. You should have some sort of worldwide boutique locator so people can see your clothing in person rather than taking the risk of buying online. Additionally, you should let people know that your shipping each piece individually from Singapore. It would make sense if you were shipping in bulk to each country for boutiques because that is ultimately more sustainable. Sorry, I think the fabric is really beautifully and I was genuinely excited after I had heard so many good things from fellow ethical bloggers, but ultimately I was disappointed all around with the purchase.
