    NWT Reproduction Depression-era Dickies khaki pants.

    Produced by Dickies x Palmer.

    Original retail: $140.

    These pants are wonderful! Perfect recreations of the khaki pants that Dickies sold in the Depression years of the 1930s these are cut from hard-wearing yet comfortable Camberton military-grade cotton twill, first used by the U.S. Army in 1931. Like classic old-school denim Camberton twill is woven on narrow looms with selvage, using ring-spun, plied yarns--precisely the fabric that these pants would have been made from in the 1930s.

    The cut and fit of these pants is also historically accurate. They are cut from patterns that were made from original 1930s pants housed in Dickies' archives; these patterns were produced by a tailor who apprenticed to tailors in the 1930s, and was taught just this type of cut. These pants are accordingly just like those of the 1930s; full cut, with plenty of room in the hip and seat--just as you need if you're a hardworking man in the Depression, hauling feedsacks. These pants have a five-button fly, a watch pocket, tunnel belt-loops, and boat sailcloth pockets. They are cuffed.

    The tags are also period accurate, both those sewn to the pants and those that are attached to them for retail sale. (With the obvious exception of the price tag.... which announces these as a collaboration between Dickies and Palmer Archival Clothing.) And, of course, these trousers were made in the USA.

    These trousers are new, unworn, with all tags attached. The original retail was $140--so how about $49, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA?

    Tagged 34/32, these measure:

    Waist: 17
    Inseam: 32 3/4 (+1" additional material to let down)
    Cuff: 1 1/2
    Rise: 12 3/4
