 This is a pair of Helmut Lang AW 1998 Vintage Army green bondage trousers. 

1998 was a very important year for Helmut Lang. The company relocated its offices from Vienna to Manhattan, making it the first fashion house to change continent, while the runway presentations move from Paris to New York. Later that year, helmutlang.com was launched and A/W 1998-1999 was the first fashion collection to be presented online. Besides these influential firsts, A/W 1998-1999 is seen as one of Lang's seminal collections, showcasing the first major exploration of the abstract and layered streetwear that became synonymous with his late 90s output.

This pair of classic workwear trousers is particularly interesting as one of the earliest examples of Helmut Lang's iconic elastic strap detailing, which was featured extensively in his 2003 and 2004 collections. The cut is slim and tapered, with an articulated leg construction that follows the lines of the body. Contrasting horizontal elastic straps can be positioned on the front or back of the knee. The aggressive shape is complemented by the thick moleskin cotton fabric that gives them an armor-like structure. One of Lang's signature outerwear materials, this substantial fabric has a dense twill weave with a sheared surface. This results in a fabric that is warm and hard-wearing while maintaining an exceptionally soft texture that ages wonderfully over time and has given this pair a beautiful vintage army green color.

This pair also features a hidden pocket for "spare change" and the waist features Helmut Lang's signature strap adjusters with polished silver hardware. The front pocket slits are made from the same panel as the waistband and front leg, in line with the workwear-inspired aesthetic. The fly closes with five large buttons and an interior anchor button that prevents uneven stretching. The interior is finished with bound seams and the pockets are lined in a textured cotton fabric.
