40s 50s Vintage Mens Pleated Front Pants Cuffed W35-37
1940s to 1950s vintage pleated pants like this are so hard to find! Set-in waistband, double pleated front, cuffed stovepipe legs. Slightly angled inset handwarmer pockets near the sideseams, and a pair of inset bound pockets in back, one that buttons closed. The pants have buttons at the waist to attach vintage suspenders.
No size label. These were taken in at the waist by a tailor at some point - if you let them back out, you could add up to 1.5" in the waist and still have 1" seam allowances.
|Pant Leg Bottom Circumference||20"||50.5|
Medium weight wool, in a heathered weave that is mostly black plus a little dark gray or brown, very subtle and versatile. Waistband, inner placket and inner pockets are unbleached polished cotton.
A large flat hook and bar at the waist, plus an tabbed button for security. The heavy brass zipper is Gripper brand.
On very close inspection, I found an old re-weaving repair near the right knee, masterfully done - see closeups. The cotton facing has many areas of discoloration, doesn't affect wearability. No other issues noted.
