Since the overall balance changes just by adding cargo pockets, we went through a number of meetings and sample examinations to maintain the neat impression of slacks. Cargo slacks are available from all brands, but we are confident that there is no other pants that are this close to slacks but also have the look of cargo pants.


When designing the “LIBRA CARGO No.4,” we used the cargo pants of the Royal Navy as a reference. The Royal Navy is known for having appointed Daniel Craig, the well-known 007 Bond character, as an honorary Commander. Various countries such as the U.S., France, Germany, and the Netherlands also offer cargo pants, but the Royal Navy’s cargo pants are the only ones with diagonal cargo pockets. Focusing on such cargo pants, this model has diagonal cargo pockets that have been redesigned to fit slacks.
