Work trousers for carpenters are usually equipped with pockets and other features, which are never used. Instead they obstruct usage of the other functions of the trousers or gather sawdust. Discarding the redundant features and keeping the few that are actually useful for a carpenter, the work trousers become more user friendly and gains a more stylistically pure look. Removable nail pockets gives the carpenter the choice of putting them away while using different machines in the workshop, and that way they won’t gather sawdust if there are items in them that keeps them open. Choosing denim as the material for the trousers refer to the origin of work wear, the durable jeans that Levi Strauss and Jacob Davies designed for the gold diggers of California, USA in the 19th century.
