Blaklader 1959 Work Pants

Blåkläder is best known for its work pants, most of which have external kneepad pockets and waist-level nail pockets akin the ones found on tool belts. The 1959s (video below) have most of the features found on other pants from that brand: triple-stitched seams, multiple leg pockets with zipper and Velcro closures, pencil pockets, and the like. What it doesn’t have are external kneepad pockets, nail pockets, and a two-tone color scheme.

Made from Cordura-denim, these pants are designed to be more stylish (they have a button fly) and look a bit more like regular jeans. They’re a single color and the kneepad pockets are hidden inside. The pants are designed to be worn with a tool belt, so they left off the nail pockets because they’d be impossible to get at and in the way.

These pants are available in Europe but not in the United States. Blåkläder is thinking about bringing them here—which is why they showed them around at The World of Concrete. I found the 1959 pants on Blåkläder’s UK website, where they list for 73.50 Euros (at the current exchange rate—about $84 US).
