Fatigue Pant in Bedford cord. Tapered leg, zip fly, flap back pockets. Made in Italy of Italian fabric.
Bedford cord, named after the town of New Bedford, Massachusetts, a famous 19th century textile manufacturing city, is a durable fabric that resembles corduroy. The weave has faint lengthwise ridges, but without the filling yarns that make the distinct wales characteristic of corduroy. It can have the appearance of narrow-width stripes with thin lines between.
Trousers made with Bedford cord are sometimes called "Bedford cords."
