Vintage Madras Pants by Corbin! c.36/32

Vintage Madras Pants by Corbin! c.36/32

Corbin was one of the main purveyors of Ivy Style during the heyday of the look, going so far as to have a line of PANTS called "Natural Shoulder". It's thus not surprising that they made many, many pairs of Madras cotton trousers--an Ivy Style summer staple.

This pair is a lovely example--the Madras is a medley of creams and blues with a dark red overcheck that would go so well with a navy blazer or a boating jacket, and is, of course, absolutely authetic Indian Madras. The pants are flat-front and uncuffed--and were, of course, Made in the USA.

They do have a small flaw--the front was snagged on something (likely a piece of protruding wicker from a lawn chair!) possibly sometime in the Kennedy administration, and were promptly and professionally repaired. Given this, they are in Good condition only, and hence just $22, or offer, shipped in the USA. The fabric alone is worth more than that! :)

Please PM with interest and offers!
