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 pair required a front panel replacement, as well as reinforcements around the pockets and hems. Features several hours-worth of subtle hand stitching and is a true one-of-a-kind piece.
