The Ralph Lauren Corporation started in 1967 with men's ties. At 28 years-old, Lauren worked for the tie manufacturer Beau Brummell, where he persuaded the company's president to let him start his own line. Drawing on his interests in sports, Lauren named his first full line of menswear 'Polo' in 1968.
This is a pair of men's Ralph Lauren Ethan cotton chino pants with a double pleated front.
Used and in very good vintage condition with general light signs of wear. Freshly laundered and ready for their 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, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.
SIZE: The label states 33W but the actual trouser waist measurement is 34in so this should be a good fit for a 32in waist (UK Sizing), which allows room for a comfortable fit. Please note the inside leg is stated as 30L but actually measures 28in (please see below for all key measurements to check against a similar garment of your own to ensure a good fit).
FABRIC: 100% Cotton, Mid-weight Twill.
- YKK zip fly front
- 2 side entry pockets
- Double pleated front
- Belt loops
- 2 rear jetted button entry pockets
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.
