Hit Man

Ryan Ota. Great guy. Often referred to as the M.C. Hammer of menswear designers.

Kidding. He's not, although both know their way around a great pair of pants. Take Ota's new Woodsmen crop pants, just into The Human Imagination.

Now these are too legit to quit: cool, casual trousers with ribbing at the hem for a slightly sporty feel. Think of your man's favorite sweatpants, but with major style upgrades – chambray or wood grain print, faux-leather accented drawstring waistband, contrasting pockets. You know, something a trend-setting hip-hop legend might throw on for an impromptu jam session.

This is just the latest hit in Ota's Safety Meeting collection, his first available in a brick-and-mortar store. For the full effect, pump it up with his initial release, the Kaya shirt: a traditional, collared button-down, color blocked in blue or tiger camo with four hidden inseam pockets and pearl snap buttons.

By the way, Ota only makes a handful of each style, so if you or your man decide to STOP before getting to The Human Imagination, his size might already be gone.

And then U can't touch this.

Available exclusively at The Human Imagination, 1154 Nuuanu Ave.
