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.
Many hours of labor and love were poured into these trousers. They feature a combination of hand-stiched repairs and embellishments as well as patching - overlaid and underlaid - to reinforce their formerly weak sections. A true #1of1 piece, there doesn't exist another pair like it.
