Symbol Of Hard Workers
The work pants style is used in factories, on the farm, postman, and humble workers. It’s a symbol of hard workers. This Chino style pants is most common in the first half 20th century in salt and pepper fabric.
Features Of The Pants
The pants are made in a fine 10oz selvedge fabric, which is milled in a Japanese factory. It’s both light, yet sturdy, has a soft hand yet hides stains and dirt. These are also the reason why this fabric was so popular with workers, especially mechanics.
It features double-welted back pockets, a double-welted watch pocket, button fly with Japanese-made urea buttons, and a period-correct one back-pocket urea button styling. The inside inseams are double-chain stitched and flat-felled, and the outseams have a double selvedge edge.
Rounding out the pants is a Japanese-milled 5 oz. Wabash discharged-dyed fabric waistband and back pockets. Also, there are taped fly seams, a garment workers’ tag, and seven raised belt loops.
The button fly is made with Japanese made buttons. For the waistband, they used an indigo discharge-dyed Japanese-milled 5oz Chambray Wabash fabric, back pocket bags, and fly piping. On the waistband are raised belt loops.
There are a double-welted watch pocket and back pocket openings, curved front slash pocket openings, and a 1930s style single back left pocket button. The cotton tags are made and printed in Japan.
The Rite Stuff pants is available in two colors; in navy and charcoal.
