“1950s Moleskin Dungarees with brass zipped bib pocket, These are the classic French dungaree design but with a bit of a twist; not only are they unworn deadstock but they are also made from thick moleskin. Moleskin, a tightly woven heavyweight cotton, was a traditional material for French workwear. Favoured for its strength and durability it ages beautifully, softening and fading over time. The shear quality of the fabric on these is among the thickest and best I’ve ever seen.

I have a bit of an obsession with vintage workwear. Maybe it’s that there’s something elegant about its utilitarian simplicity or maybe that it's made to last, to be hard wearing whatever the job at hand. Or perhaps it’s down to the way it wears- Gracefully aging to become a sun-bleached, patched old friend.

I’ve built up quite a collection over the years and I’m always on the lookout for stand out pieces. I keep a special eye out for French workwear as it is among the best and most durable out there so when I was recently passing one of my favourite dealers who’d just managed to source a whole load of 1940’s-1950’s deadstock French workwear I leapt in to have a good rummage!

I managed to pick out four amazing sets of unworn dungarees in both heavy cotton drill and Moleskin, all with their original labels still attached. I love dungarees they are one of those classic designs that is both practical infinitely wearable. Old French ones are some of the nicest, having much more shaping than their American cousins with their wide legs and cinched in waists.”
