As a part of our belief in transparency Atacac would like to share the pattern and 3D-model for this garment. If you wish to support the continuation of pattern development, please do so!
Jimmy and Rickard first met in 2005 when Rickard spotted Jimmy at a bar wearing a pair of the very first screw trousers sold. Thus, in a way the screw trousers can been seen as the very embryo of Atacac. For some years the screw trousers was the backbone of the Rickard Lindqvist collections and we are very happy to be able to offer this updated version.
"Screw" in these trousers is neither about getting laid or fooled but refers to the screw shaped stripe of fabric running down the outer side of the leg. This screwed piece creates a wrinkle along the leg that does not only look good, it also makes it meaningless (and very tricky) to iron them!
Print the pattern out on a large scale plotter or use the tile function if printing on a normal printer and print it in small pieces and then tape the pattern together.
When downloading you will get 4 different files. A png illustrating the arm, a pdf ready for print, a dfx that can be imported into any CAD/CAM software and a ZPrj with the pattern assembled in 3D. The ZPrj file can be viewed and altered in CLO.
