The Factory Pant
A piece from the hard-wearing and practical utilitarian workwear uniform, these trousers are the often overlooked brother to the bleu de travail jacket. Like the jacket, they too were dyed in the affordable and now infamous indigo blue as a means to differentiate a floor factory worker from his manager or foreman. French factory workers made this uniform famous in the 1800s, and other European countries quickly adopted and manufactured their own copies to supply their workforce. A living color, the indigo dye in each of these pieces have faded to varying degrees of its rich violet hue.
This batch of trousers have been faded to a soft blue and sometimes violet, so we decided to add some contrast in the form of darker blue patches and several hours worth of hand stitching. Each pair is 1 of 1.
Because each piece is one-of-a-kind, the featured images are representative of the actual piece that would be received. For more images of the pair in your specific size, please email us at email@example.com.
