    Are those cotton duck pants from 1891-1930, possibly from Can't Bust Em, an early Levi competitor? [​IMG] Ha ha! Nice find. You ruin thrift stores for the rest of us.

    ill look and buy for a small fee. i dont have to ruin them for you, especially if i can make some money and help people that will appriciate the clothes.

    these fit me tho, so im holding on to them. wearing them now actually.

    There's something about wearing another man's pants that bothers me. Yeah, I'm sure I sure see a therapist.

    We all wear another man's pants, insofar as we are dynamic beings.

    i see it's possible to get jeans-like wear with workpants--although it's a lot more subtle. i'm sure it would be more pronounced on a darker color.

    anyone know of a modern workpant that i could wear to work and wear-in like jeans? i have a couple pairs of uniqlo that come close, but i really want something like cheap mofo has.

    ive never seen anything like this, except some lvc and they are denim. but im broke right now, and for the right price, or trade, maybe you could have these.

    In this photo, I see a white tag on the inside waistband. Does it say anything? And what is the inseam and waist measurement? Thanks -

    You don't call work pants "vintage"

    You call them worn.

    As in

    "Yo, check out my sweet pair of worn Dickies"

    alright guys, i got these in the mail last week. these are definitely not very old as the care tag says, "machine wash warm."

    however, they are unique and i will hold on to them.

    Ouch, pair of redlines for those huh? Looks like Cheapmutha made out like a bandit (or like a cheap mother*****). But seriously, I think in the old days people considered hands to be machines so they are still probably late 1800s. (Just tell yourself that. It makes it sting a little less.)

    I figured they were a reproduction when he didn't directly respond to my question.
