Original Vintage 1950s French Workwear Trousers (FR22)


A superb pair of vintage 1950s French chore pants.

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

Label reads, “Botton, villefranche irrétrécissable in- var”.

Button fly, a higher rise, thicker belt loops, patched and stitched, re- inforced pocket edges, attractive dark band at hem which shows the natural sun fade of these trousers . 

These trousers are in “worn in” condition with fade, wear, darning, patching etc... Please view photos.

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- 42”

Inside leg- 27.5”

Rise- 13”
