The Argentine bombacha de campo is the go-to pant of gauchos, native cowboys of the South American pampas. It’s an agrarian workwear staple renowned for both durability and comfort — long standing the test of time as a symbol of hard, honest work.
Our pants channel the nomadic ruggedness of this land’s predecessors, reigniting their significance among generations to come.
When our founder, Ryan, first arrived in Buenos Aires 7-years-ago, a friend handed him his first pair of bombachas de campo. He wore them, loved them—and quickly realized that doing so wasn’t considered particularly “cool” in the fashion capital of South America.
His perfect everyday look was deemed antiquated and lacking in sophistication. So he teamed up with friend and Designer Nicolas Pedalino to create a product that blends old-school gaucho tradition with modern design resulting in a unique, rugged yet refined multipurpose pant.
At Fields Outfitting, our small-batch designs pay tribute to the “gaucho identidad”— adapting the look, feel, and function of Classic Field Pant for everyday modern use. Featuring a slimmer fit with patterned trim, cuffs, and pockets, every pant is as unique as it is wearable.
Ryan Volatile and Nicolás Pedalino became fast friends after meeting on the lacrosse field at the University of Buenos Aires.
Off the field, they bonded over a love of the warmth, humor, and openness of Argentine culture and a unique pair of pants—the same pair of pants Nico would eventually gift Ryan upon his move to Argentina in 2013.
With Nico’s eye for design and Ryan’s business acumen, the two work in tandem to create products that promote cultural fusion, exploration and the carefree, creative confidence found throughout day-to-day life in Argentina
