Did you know that Al Swearengen was a real person? Nor did I, until I found his Wikipedia page whilst researching this bit of website copy.

Anyhow, these work-style pants, named for the potty-mouthed ‘entrepreneur’ of both American history and a cancelled-too-soon HBO show, arrived here bearing the legend ‘Wild West Fit’, which was enough to raise a smile on my face. What that actually translates to is a slim-straight, tailored – but not skinny – silhouette.

The fabric used for this particular flavor of Swearengen pants is the root/indigo dyed hickory stripe that we’ve become big fans of over here at Standard & Strange..

  • Slim-straight, tailored fit
  • Root and indigo dyed hickory stripe fabric
  • 11oz natural cotton twill pocket bags throughout
  • ‘Smiling’ rear pockets
  • Western-style ‘reverse scoop’ front pockets
  • Patinated nickel buttons
  • Cold washin’ & no tumblin’
  • Made in Portugal

All measurements are in inches.

Further details

Indigofera is the latin name for the genus of plants that includes everyone’s favorite clothing dye. It is also the name that seemed most natural for Mats and Johan when deciding what to call their fledgling clothing company back in 2007.

Based in Stockholm, Sweden, Indigofera specialize in - as you might expect – denim, but have also become widely known for their shirts and wool blankets. Working closely with both European and Japanese mills, they focus first on fabrics, before evn beginning to map out the cutting and sewing of a garment. This focus on textiles goes as far as having proprietary denims and flannels woven specifically for Indigofera.

Aesthetically, Indigofera falls somewhere between traditional workwear and a look that’s more reminiscent of the appropriation of that workwear by bikers and hot-rodders during the 50s and 60s, albeit with a more modern, tailored fit.

Indigofera themselves are proud of the fact that their look forges it’s own path, rather than looking around to the rest of the fashion world for direction; co-founder, and former commercial director of Levi’s Vintage, Mats Andersson is on record as saying that ‘Indigofera is not a brand that you have to doubt if you’re cool enough to wear it’.

A good example of this practical approach to both style and construction can be found by simply looking at the hem of any pair of Indigofera jeans. Whereas the accepted wisdom amongst denim purists is that chainstitched hems are more ‘authentic’ and, therefore, more desirable, Indigofera bucks this trend by using a simple running stitch to hem all of their jeans. Why? Because it’s a stronger stitch and less prone to unravelling.
