Vintage Adolphe Lafont Workwear Blue French Work Trousers 38 W 32 L
This vintage French Adolphe Lafont cotton sateen pant is a true one-of-a-kind piece, and perfect for a relaxed, workwear inspired look.
The 'Sanfor' on the inner label is short for 'Sanforized' which is a sign of quality. In sanforization, the fabric is stretched, fixed and shrunk in length at the mill in order to reduce the amount of shrinkage that can occur after the first wash.
Used and in very good vintage condition with general light signs of wear and discolouration to both thigh areas and the seat area down the creases. There are some pulls to the fabric to the back right (as worn) thigh area. Freshly steamed and ready for its new owner.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.
COLOUR: Indigo Blue.
SIZE: The label states 52 and the actual trouser waist measurement is 41in and this should be a good fit for a 38in waist (UK Sizing), which allows room for a comfortable fit (please see below for all key measurements to check against a similar garment of your own to ensure a good fit).
FABRIC: 100% Cotton Sateen (with a sheen to the fabric), this is quite a heavy cloth.
- Button fly front with hook and loop
- Button waist
- 2 front welt pockets
- Rear button entry welt pocket
- Belt loops
- Rear leg utility pocket
HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
EXTERNAL MEASUREMENTS: Please check against a similar garment of your own that fits you well, measuring flat and fully zipped or buttoned up on a flat surface.

Please do not solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand.
