Regular-fit pants with a high waist and a wide leg in our own hickory stripe denim.
The hickory stripe is one of the iconic American workwear fabrics — if not the most. It was favored by railroad workers and painters as the stripes would obscure stains. The catchy but odd name is believed to refer to the fabric's hard-wearing properties; because it is tough as hickory. While it is indeed tough, it is compared to denim that's flatter and lighter in weight due to the thinner yarn and flatter 2/1 construction. Therefore, it's perfect for workwear where comfort is important.
We have developed this 8.5 oz. 2/1 Z hickory stripe denim by studying our favorite vintage examples. We found that the indigo stripe was often slightly wider than the white, which partly makes the garment look bluer from afar, but also creates a more pleasing balance between the stripes up close. As will all things indigo blue and denim this piece will age, and it will do so gloriously!
