I also managed to convince him to add an oversized cinch waist like the Udaan pants, because I wanted to see how a feature like that worked on someone much smaller than me. Halfway through his piece, he decided to abandon the Sipahi cargo pockets, and hence the Master’s pants were born. They are named Master’s pants because the design was originally made for our Master cutter.
Presenting Garuda’s second release for May 2021, comprising of existing designs reimagined in a new textile: Rayon Linen. Just in time for peak summer. This release contains five items, combined with our previous two (Studio Shirt and Enjinia Shirt) Rayon Linen items for a total of 7 options in the fabric.
In 2016 we created a jacket that almost destroyed Garuda. We invested heavily into this jacket, and if it didn’t sell we were almost certainly done for. Guess what? It didn’t sell a single unit. This put our backs against the wall, we had almost no capital to make a new product, but we had designs in mind. So we decided to try made to order, we presented a new design to potential clients and got their buy-in, they paid for their garments upfront and we used that money to make the designs come to life.
A few weeks have passed. We have feverishly continued to sample Garuda’s first release of Kit 1, its finally time to start sourcing and getting equipped for production.
In V3 we have redefined the Udaan pant, in many ways to be what it should have always been. We are very proud of all the improvements and the new silhouette.
