Traditional, corporate German carpenter work pants. Straight cut, unlike the French broadot, it is made from 100% cotton moleskin of 520g/m2, nicknamed “English leather” for its thickness and robustness. Very distinctive with its bridge opening and brass zippers, signature of corporate pants across the Rhine, which had the function of not allowing wood shavings to enter the pants. In this material it fits just right. If you are hesitant between 2 sizes, take the larger one.

History of moleskin:

Moleskin is to Europe what denim is to the United States. This very dense and tight cotton weave, similar to satin, evokes leather because of the finish that covers it. The origin of the word comes from the English term “mole skin” which literally means “mole skin” in reference to the feel of the material. For its protective quality it became the key material for work clothing which originally equipped workers in the steelworks of Sheffield in England. Across the Channel it becomes “the heating blue” of our mechanics and steam locomotive drivers.

Nowadays, it is in this robust canvas that the corporate clothing of the Compagnons du Devoir is made. For the latter there are color codes by profession: ecru for stonemasons, black for carpenters and roofers, blue for masons or marine carpenters.

Resistant, beautiful to wear, its fabric adapts to you and becomes like a second skin after a few wears.
