Roomy pants are trending up, and there is no better way to get in on the style than a classic pair of salt & pepper indigo work pants. The work pant is probably the easiest way to add some on-trend workwear into your look without completely overhauling your closet. They're sturdy, comfortable, and look downright cool on pretty much everyone.

From the factory to the farm, the garage and the delivery route, the humble work pant is an emblem of hard, honest work. The most popular of the last century has undoubtedly been the chino trousers style, and one of the most common fabrics of the first half of the 20th century was salt & pepper.

The Daybreak Work Pants are made in a selvedge, 10-oz. Japanese-milled salt & pepper fabric that's both light yet sturdy, has a soft hand yet hides stains, dirt and other marks with uncanny ease. There's a reason this fabric was so popular with workers, especially mechanics.

The Daybreak features double-welted back pockets, a double-welted watch pocket, button fly with Japanese-made urea buttons, and a period-correct one back-pocket urea button styling.

The inside inseams are double-chain stitched and flat-felled, and the outseams have a double selvedge edge.

Rounding out the pants is a Japanese-milled 5 oz. Wabash discharged-dyed fabric waistband and back pockets. In addition, there are also taped fly seams, a garment workers' tag, and seven raised belt loops.

Last but not least, the Daybreak is made in Japan in collaboration with John Lofgren & Co. to John's exacting standards of quality and ethical manufacturing.
