Continental Trousers - "Rive Gauche" Brown Corduroy


Free USA Shipping on orders over $100


When you look at a vintage photo or painting of a street scene in Paris, it looks like everyone's wearing a suit. Banker, artist, produce dealer, baker, all in suits. What you cannot tease out from gazing back in time is the cloth each suit is cut from. The suits of the working class were made from hardy, tough textiles like this one, designed to look at least passible in the city while surviving the abuse of real labor. 

The fabric is a heavy (14oz) 100% cotton corduroy from Japan and rendered in a rich cognac brown. Lining half of the shoulders and the pockets is a new-old-stock cotton/linen chambray fabric, and corozo wood buttons close the whole thing up.

The trousers have everything we love. The fit is a medium rise, with a slightly tapered leg allowing for your choice of footwear. The back cinch is outfitted with a NOS slide buckle, and sits above welt pockets. They're lined with the same NOS cotton/linen chambray as the matching jacket. 

Fits true to size. Dry clean recommended, or delicately hand wash with a mild detergent in cold water and then hang dry.
