No niche of fashion is left out in Japan – even work outfits.
Tobi is the name for Japanese construction workers clothes.
The tobi trousers are a distinctive shape.
By that, I mean giant.
The pole construction workers used in the Edo period reminded people of the beak of a Tobi bird, hence the name.
I have no idea if these pants are more comfortable, safer or why on earth they are worn by construction workers in Japan.
But they look so cool.
