Original Vintage 1940s French Workwear Trousers (F11)
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’.
It also has the number, ‘117’ on a little label, as well as stitched in red and the previous owner’s name, ‘Anne- Marie Letron’.
This is unusual as most workwear would have been worn by male labourers.
Button fly, a high rise, thicker belt loops, hems were previously taken up a few millimetres, metal buttons typical of workwear from this era.
These trousers are in “worn in” condition with very 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)- 14”
Outside Leg Length- 38.5”
Inside leg- 27.5”
