Someone stole my pants in Ghana. They were drying on the clothesline, a light-weight pair of hiking trousers, and they disappeared.
They were my only pair.
Luckily for me, tailors are as common in West Africa as Starbucks are in Seattle. So I played like a local. I went to the market and bought fabric, then took it to a tailor and described how I hoped the end result would look. The tailor took my measurements, and a day later I picked up these pants. They’re not quick-dry or high-tech, but they’re fashionable!
