The more I realize that these leg sheaths are pretty much straight out of the warped imagination of a combat video game’s costume designer, the more I love and fear them. And I must respect the fact that they can totally carry a very casual, basic outfit into next level territory. These photos were taken on your typical perfect fall day in Napa Valley. So quaint was the entire scene that we had to wait to shoot as people in flannel pushed bushels of things by in wheelbarrows like, more than once. I just might love you more than you love your own community gardens, Norcal.
