Zooming in on one mundane yet infinitely enigmatic object at a time, every issue of MacGuffin magazine combines scrupulous research with design geekery to present a thick volume of illuminating, satisfying reading.

MacGuffin’s seventh issue is dedicated to an object that is not just a garment, but a symbol of power and desire: trousers.
