Man's pantaloons, c. 1970

Not on Viewexpand_more

Pants of this cut are worn by men in many parts of Guatemala and were inspired by contact with Europeans. The embroidered pattern is typical of the designs used in Santiago Atitlán. A belt (banda), such as example #5 in the case, would be wrapped around the top and securely tied to hold the pants in place.
