The Rite Stuff - Daybreak Salt & Pepper Work Pants (Charcoal)
※NOTE: The Daybreaks run large; I recommend sizing down from your usual size but please consult the size chart too.※
From the factory to the farm, the garage and the delivery route, the humble work pant is an emblem of hard, honest work. The most popular of the last century has undoubtedly been the chino trousers style, and one of the most common fabrics of the first half of the 20th century was salt & pepper.
The Daybreak Work Pants are made in a selvedge, 10-oz. Japanese-milled salt & pepper fabric that’s both light yet sturdy, has a soft hand yet hides stains, dirt and other marks with uncanny ease. There’s a reason this fabric was so popular with workers, especially mechanics.
The Daybreak features double-welted back pockets, a double-welted watch pocket, button fly with Japanese-made urea buttons, and a period-correct one back-pocket urea button styling.
The inside inseams are double-chain stitched and flat felled, and the outseams have a double selvedge edge.
The Daybreak also comes with a longer 34 or 36-inch depending on the size.
Rounding out the pants is a Japanese-milled 5 oz. wabash discharged-dyed fabric waistband and back pockets. In addition, there are also taped fly seams, a garment workers’ tag, and seven raised belt loops.
Last but not least, the Daybreak is made in Japan in collaboration with John Lofgren & Co. to John’s exacting standards of quality and ethical manufacturing.
