SWISS SALT&PEPPER TROUSER - 1960’s
Wide Swiss Army workwear trousers used during the 60’s.
The Swiss Army have always demonstrated high standards and attention towards its uniforms, especially in the choice of fabrics.
These trousers were part of a military work uniform that represented a unique case in its genre, since they were made with a very strong and heavy cotton, characterized by a salt and pepper pattern.
Early models had metal buttons, while more recent versions used plastic ones.
The workwear uniform was completed with a jacket, made using the same fabric, and was commonly known as the ‘Tenu D Uberkleid’. The name of the trousers was ‘ Uberhose,’ which meant that they could be worn as a overall, due to their strong composition.
