Now my hope is on you, fellow Loungers. It is no secret, that I am a big lover of the look and fit of N-1 Deck Jackets. And some of you know, that a I am tall and rather slim though not lean (the pandemic helped with the last). I used to love wearing jeans. Japanese, US, trimmer fit or occasionally loose fit. But since I intensified my hiking activities again two years ago I remembered how shockingly comfortable light synthetic trousers and merino base layers, puffy jackets and so on are. I have to confess, that I basically live in my puffy jackets day in day out especially since the Pandemic minimized my appearance in the public space other than alone outdoors in my field research activities as an archaeologist. But from time to time there comes the desire to just put on my Deck Jacket again and socialize. But now I just feel so uncomfortable in all of my jeans. Jeans have always felt cold during the late autum days, a fact, I had willingly ignored because they looked the way I liked. But now I really don't see me in them anymore. I have some lightweight military pants, some old swedish army wool pants, one old German Bundeswehr "Filzlaus" pants (which is basically patterned after US M51 pants if I am correct) where I removed the cargo pockets. All of these are nice to have but not what I like at the moment. I don't want any kind of re-enactment look but I assume, that an old school N-1 Jacket - I prefer the navy blue one at the moment over the khaki one - does not go well with hiking pants, even with the more old school Fjällraven ones I own in a dark blue color. I start to like the look with ordinary dark grey jogging pants but forbit myself to even think further. Or maybe I will become a trend setter here. Would you please help a guy who's acute crisis is not the pandemic but the crisis what to wear with his N-1 when going where he should not go after all due to the pandemic: THE CENTER OF OUR CITY AND MINGLE WITH THE CROWD (distance keeping and mask wearing, of course)? I can not wear my Jogging pants in public. Period. So ANY suggestions - even military pants - are welcome, most of all when they are combined with fotos of you wearing such a jacket with something not jeans.
