A new collection of old favorites, the Wallace & Barnes line is built on the foundations of traditional workwear, vintage military uniforms and outdoor gear. On a visit to a 19th-century sawmill museum in New Hampshire, our men's designer, Willy, was struck by how well a 120-year-old pair of work pants had held up. Though battered and caked in wood dust, most of the workwear detailing remained intact. Even more impressive was the ingenious fishtail that had been notched in the back of the waistband for ease of comfort when wearing suspenders. Inspired, we constructed our own version in heavy real-indigo-dyed cotton, giving it interior suspender buttons (hidden in case you prefer a belt) and drop-face reinforcing at the front and back. And just because we're obsessed with details, we lined the pockets in a bleached-out floral print. Please note that due to the nature of true indigo, the dye may transfer to lighter-hued fabrics and upholstery with initial wear.
