Original Vintage 1940s French Workwear Trousers (F10)


A superb pair of vintage 1940s French chore pants.

Excellent quality and a rare smaller size, in heavy sanforised cotton.

Label reads, “Au Petit Marché, J. Ronchail, Chambéry- Chamoux’.

Button fly, a high rise, thicker belt loops, two bands at hem which shows the natural sun fade of these trousers from turn ups, metal buttons typical of workwear from this era.

These trousers are in “worn in” condition with gentle fade, wear etc...


At Bobby & Dandy, we feel that any fade, wear, darning and patching only adds to the character and appeal of vintage workwear. 




I estimate that these trousers would best fit a Men’s XS/S or Women’s S approx UK8- 10 W28”, depending on required fit. But please look at the measurements below: 


Waist (measured flat)- 15” (just!)

Outside Leg Length- 39”

Inside leg- 28”

Rise- 14”
