Le Pantalon Apache
Inspired by turn of the century to 1930′s French tailor-made gent garb, our Pantalon Apache come in three different fabric options. Woven in Japan exclusively for MFSC, the fabrics were developed from vintage swatches and samples of 100 year old textiles from our archives.
They are not replicas, as we changed some yarn color combinations, tones and texture, giving them our trademark twist. The fabrics are 100% cotton, making them drape and feel the way we wanted. They were a real endeavor to mill and had some people pulling their hair in the process…
The trousers can be matched with our Gilet de Ville, cut from the same cloth. Throw a Veste Ouvrier on top to dress them down, or a vintage leather coat or blazer… Also great with a simple white Marcel (French slang for tank-top undershirt, aka “wife-beater”, no offense Mesdemoiselles), for the BBQ months. Add your own vintage buttons to hook-up your suspenders. Dress shoes, motorcycle boots or clunky old work shoes…
Work it out pally! Nice break from the daily denim accoutrement.
Original MFSC pattern, inspired by early French tailor-made suiting. 1930′s silhouette with higher-rise and fuller legs.
Milled in Japan, in small limited batches, exclusive to MFSC. The three options are NOT an alternate color way of the same woven fabric, rather three totally differently woven fabrics as follow:
GREY COVERT STRIPE:
10 Oz., all cotton, double cloth, 6 different colored yarns, white selvedge.
The garment comes in an individual old school chipboard box, exclusive to MF®. Please recycle those boxes, they can be used for home storage of small items.
WAIST & POCKET LINING:
All cotton MFSC stripe ticking and original MFSC Métisse 50% cotton/50% Linen plain weave, indigo dyed and black pigment coated.
Original MFSC Corozo natural wood buttons. (aka “vegetable ivory”, corozo buttons where an hi-end option for suiting from the 1900’s to 1940’s).
*Side adjustment slide buckle straps, with original NOS French metal hardware.
* Two back pocket with button dart flaps.
* Concealed waist hook, original NOS French metal hardware.

SIZING & SHRINKAGE:
All fabric options are RAW and unwashed, and will shrink and torque lightly with cold delicate wash/hang dry (about 1 to 2%). As you wouldn’t throw a suit in the washer (or shouldn’t, should one get the urge to do so), this pantalon Apache, although washable, should be treated with TLC.
The Apache collection is sized and labeled in French… (we do our best to measure accurately, but although sober, three different people measuring will come up with three different results…)
DO NOT get a size up and BOIL them...
