On the 18th June 2019, the Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton) debuted J.Crew’s Sailor pants at a nautical-themed event in London. Kate had attended the 1851 Trust’s final Roadshow at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre.
About Kate’s J.Crew Sailor Pants:
The cropped Sailor pants feature a “kicked leg” (which means a slight flare) and gold coloured nautical buttons. They’re made from a stretch-wool blend fabric, which is specially crafted so the trousers will keep their shape.
Where to buy the Sailor Pants:
Sadly, J.Crew no longer stock the trousers. They were sold out prior to Kate wearing them. However, at the time of writing, there are a few pairs available on eBay.
Kate Middleton wearing J.Crew:
This is not the only item of clothing Kate owns from J.Crew. In fact, she paired the trousers with a pair of tweed shoes by the brand too.
You may recall that Kate wore a pair of black skinny jeans from J.Crew during an official visit to New York in 2014. The Duchess also met with Jenna Lyons, J.Crew’s Creative Director, at a reception during the trip.
