This model is based on a mid 1930s wood worker pant. Hence the name: Chopping down the tree. During that period denims were still meant to be worn as an over-garment, therefore fits were rather loose, which is also the case with our 1936 Chopper Pant. The fabric Alcatraz White is a Prison Stripe. Prison Stripes came about around 1850 and were designed for quick recognition of prisoners who were on the run. The following details distinguish our 1936 Chopper Pant: - 100% cotton - high waist, loose fit - suspenders buttons - ruler pocket on the right leg - Made in Turkey Attention. The fabric is printed and may stain.
