Freewheelers Indigo Wabash "Longshoreman" Trousers (Modern Straight Fit)

Size Guide

FW 'worker' pants ain't like any other!

In the 1900s~ workers of the USA looked for quality workwear made of the 'STIFEL' fabric! This design with an alternating back pocket design, a re-inforced tool pocket and rectangular front pockets was worn by the dockworkers.

For added comfort, you can adjust the rear cinch back for the perfect fit. The waistband is also lined with an indigo hickory fabric for durability.

FW has taken this famous Wabash fabrication recipe to another level with denim weaving techniques.

This is a selvage fabric made from indigo-dyed threads, meaning that with time, you’ll see many shades of indigo fading up, unlike typical over-dying techniques. Check the pockets and waist

As for the Wabash pattern itself, they’ve applied two layers, an irregular beige dot with light burgundy speckles on top. This gives the overall pattern so much depth and looks nothing like any other Wabash. For added character, the backside of the fabric features a skilfully printed ‘STIFEL’ logo mark inspired by the legendary US fabric company.
