These pants contain high-quality, natural European fibers, a whole pile of research and lots and lots of work. Anyone who tries on the E550 WORKPANT will quickly see, however, that all the effort was worth it. The pants combine the advantages of jeans and chinos with functional details, extreme comfort and a timeless design. F-ABRIC WORKPANTS are made of FREITAG’s unique Broken Twill, a weave of linen and true hemp that we developed especially for these pants. The WORKPANT is ready to wear, and its fit and patina adapt even more to your body each time you wear it.

The WORKPANT made of broken twill was developed by FREITAG during the past five years from the fiber up, put to the test by our F-Workers for several months. It was wrenched and ripped, worried, hassled, bullied, washed at extreme temperatures, put through the wringer and pretty much tortured by the entire FREITAG workforce. And now it’s one of our most well-loved colleagues. Welcome to the team, E550!
