Gentleman, beautiful retro, card pants are simply a man’s “pants”
It seems that I haven’t cared for half your body recently, I wrote a lot of internal and jackets. It’s time to write to write half your body.
There is a classic, never-time pants, which can be equipped with rough tooling, elegant gentleman suit, fashion and fashionable street tide card. It is a card trousers.
Many people may not know, have experienced multiple card pants with multiple interpretations of the times, and they are actually a military product.
The history of card pants can be traced back to 1846. At that time, a large number of British soldiers were stationed in the Indian colonies. India was very wet, and the traditional uniform of the British army was red cashmere jacket and white pants. It is also easy to expose the target in the war.
So, a British landmark called Harry BurNett Lumsden will design a wide pants with twill cotton, and extract liquid from plants such as coffee, tobacco, tea leaves, and dyed clothes into yellow brown, mixed with earth. It is easy to camouflage in combat, and is called “Khaki card” by the Indian language. This is the predecessor of the card. In 1902, the British army officially took the karamun military uniform as official uniform, called “From the Fortune”.
Due to the adventure spirit, gradually became the preferred pants of British explorers and nobles. And popular from India to the world.
During the US War, the US military stationed in the Philippines was also a card, but they clicked their trousers called twilight cotton trousers, and later soldiers brought this trousers back to the United States. Due to Khaka Cotton comes from China, the local people say that this pants are “chinos”, in Spanish, “China”.
It is a kind of knowledge that people often argue in Khakis and Chinos represent the same pants. It is just the different names of the British and US military.
In 1937, the US military officially approved the cards in the ordinary horse-pants, as a military garrison and field homework when using the military trousers.
By the way, add a knowledge point for ancient enthusiasts to resolve the year according to the design. In 1938, the military card before, due to the field of operational needs, the fabric used is more thick and wear. The trouser line uses a double-needle burying process to strengthen the degree of solidity. However, this sewing car was not popular, only the military card is like this.
In 1941, with the expansion of the war, the number of soldiers increased, and this high-quality card is in short supply. Single line or playing process is started for cost and large-scale production considerations. (The two-wire pants are still produced, only less than the amount)
However, the card of the single needle line has a disadvantage that the sewing thread is easy to burst. A lot of muscles can break the pants, which is too unsatisfactory for soldiers who practice all day. So the military has widened the trousers three times, and finally confirmed as a pantage number 6-254. Double needle burying is made of work, high quality metal buckle, heavy high-density cotton yarn squash fabric production. High-waist is designed, it is very popular.
6-254 Become one of the classic pants in the history of card, is also a lot of pants, a lot of retro enthusiasts, commonly known as “high waist broad”.
In the spring of 1942, the US military added a windproof board to prevent poisonous gases from entering the body through the button closed area. This card is named “Special Khaki Cotton Trouser”. The previous is called “Khaki Cotton Trouser”.
In the summer of 1942, the human strikes have replaced the card. The design is green, the fabric strength is better, and the larger pocket capacity is convenient. Although the human grape squash uniform is widely used in tropical operations, card pants are still retained as service uniforms.
After the end of the 1945 World War, the inventory card is pushing to the civilian market. Because the card is a few “military” characteristics, casual comfort, good matching, whether the veteran is still ordinary, all love this design, often wearing a card and trousers to attend various occasions.
A loose casual shirt, a card, is a typical American style dress at that time.
Especially in the 1960s, Ivy Style ivy style prevails, khairs as one of the essential signs of Ivy Style, standing on the trend, from this epidemic from unrequited recession.
That era, the American aristocratic government, Ivy students were tired of the old-fashioned suit, and they want more comfortable style. But for these famous gentlemen, jeans are not official enough, so the card pants will become the first choice. Compass with a suit jacket, leisure is not lost.
At that time, many working classes were worn in their trousers, but Ivy Style’s card is generally narrowed down. In order to maintain a gentleman, there will be a pleat crease on the trousers to show the work.
The card is now popular in the workshop. And mentioning card trousers, everyone will think of Dickies 874, because it is too classic. Now I saw a slightly “card pants”, “casual pants”, mostly based on Dickies’s 874 dressing pants improvement design.
Dickies, and Ben Davis, Carhartt, called “North American Trim Construction Brand”. Born in 1922, he became one of the main suppliers of US military uniforms during World War II, which rapidly developed rapidly during this period.
874 is the first tooling pants of Dickies, born in 1923, simple and durable, classic tailor, perfect interpretation of tooling culture, and its status can be comparable to Levi’s 501.
At the beginning of the birth of 874, there was only one kind of khaki. Later, as a specific trousented production, no matter what color, it is called a card. It is made of 8.5 ounce TC fabrics, 65% polyester and 35% cotton matching ratio mix, anti-fouling and wrinkles, not easily deformed. Based on a thick and thick work, it is more light and comfortable.
We often referred to as 874 straight pants. In fact, 874 is not a straightforward straight, and its calf is still harder than the thigh part. The line is simple, but it is not single. The proportion coordination, the medium waist design, elegant and casual, and I have not been tired. Nowadays, there are many casual pants, even in the tailor of trousers, there are few more than the 874 design.
After 1967, Dickies extends the 873, 872, 803 and other models at 874.
Among them, 873 can be simply understood as a reduced version of 874, the cut contour is not too big to be too large, just the pants legs, the trouser foot is narrower. 872 is more like conical pants, from the thigh to the calf, have significant reduction in changing. 803 is more like a tights.
Although today’s trousers are more rich, American retro enthusiasts still prefer 874. But you need to remind everyone that you must see it in the US version or the Japanese version when you purchase.
Japanese version 874 is Dickies brand after entering the Japanese market, specifically for the style of the Asian body improvement design, the pants tube is narrower, the waist is lowered, and the trousers are also shortened. The US version of 874 is more suitable for people who have a tall, follow the original standard trousers. After all, Americans and Asians are still slightly different in size.
Whether you are a rough tough guy, or an elegant male, or a handsome street route, card pants, worthy of life.
