The pants version of Tuff Tony has all the characteristics of true worker pants. The loose fit, the wide leg, and the comfortable high waist. We made this one in our own hickory stripe denim.
The hickory stripe is one of the iconic American workwear fabrics — if not the most. It was favored by railroad workers and painters as the stripes would obscure stains. The catchy but odd name is believed to refer to the fabric's hard-wearing properties; because it is tough as hickory. While it is indeed tough, it is compared to denim that's flatter and lighter in weight due to the thinner yarn and flatter 2/1 construction. Therefore, it's perfect for workwear where comfort is important.
