An original pair of British checked work trousers dating from the 1950s and in unworn condition.
This style of trousers was produced for people working in kitchens and canteens for many years. The construction of this particular pair suggests they were manufactured in the 1950s and they are of typical utilitarian construction. They are made from a light cotton which features a blue and white checked button and the fly fastens with white plastic buttons. More similar buttons are fitted around the inside of the waistband to which braces can be attached. Belt loops are fitted around the waist and a single patch pocket is located to the rear. Angled slash pockets are located at the hips and are constructed in a way so that they pass across the top of the waistband which is a great design detail and can be seen in picture 4. There is a small size ticket fitted inside the trousers which reads '32'.
The trousers will suit around a 32" waist and when laid flat they measures -
Waist - 16 1/2"
Rise - 13 3/4"
Rear rise - 16 1/2"
Inside leg - 31 1/2"
Outside leg - 43"
Cuff - 8"
The trousers are in excellent, unworn condition. In the pictures it looks like there are some marks to the legs but in person it is hard to see these. Due to the nature of the small checked print it is very hard to see if there are any marks or if it is infact a trick of the light.
A nice pair of British workwear trousers with some great details.
