    Am I staring at a soon to be crotch? ;)

    How is the cut of the final pants? High waisted/ wide legged?

    Coming along nicely Simon.

    Would anybody know what these trousers could be?
    Soft loden-like fabric.
    Labelled 'XL' so I assume they aren't vintage but repro.
    Perhaps a world war two uniform reproduction?

    look like they've taken inspiration from several different European work and military trousers, and modernised them with a lower rise.

    It doesn't seem like a fashion item to me though, no labels other than the 'XL', seems a bit stark and military.
    Dunno. A strange one.

    Brilliant Dinerman, thanks. :)
    I bought them to sell, so an accurate description goes a long way.

    For everyone interested in classic workwear, I would recommend checking out Hand-Eye Supply, based in Portland, Oregon. Great website, even better retail store and some of the nicest people around, I've got no affiliation, other than having bought their Red Kap Denim Workshirt and having my eye on getting one of their aprons, maybe the Fog Linen.

    Enjoy.

    I like the vest. I don't do the jeans on jeans look but the stripes make it work. Is "The Work Wear Manufacturers" the brand?
