|Spanish term or phrase: bolsillos carpinteros martingola en trasero|
|Part of the description of a style based on late 19th and early 20th Century fashion...|
"Antiguas prendas de trabajo, grandes bolsillos carpinteros martingola (ceñidor) en trasero,..."
The martingola is what leaves me bewildered..
|carpenter pockets, back half belt|
I think Jane's right and it's martingala, but I don't think that martingala is a saddlebag. What's more, I have a feeling you may be missing a comma between carpinteros and martingala--seems like too much all together there.
Here are some definitions:
4. f. Arg. y Ur. Trabilla de adorno que se lleva en la parte posterior de los abrigos, chaquetas, etc.
martingala - half belt (on back of coat) (Simon and Schuster)
Prada Sport cotton linen flat front trousers with **half belt** detail in back, drawstring hem and zip front fastening.
Designed to the style of the Windproof trousers but with a waterproof dropliner. These comfortable trousers feature a wide self-supporting waistband that gives a **half-belt** for carrying small pouches, with buckles on the hips for maximum adjustability and comfort when wearing webbing.
Many other refs. to half belt on trousers at link below.
Lightweight denim 5 pocket zipper fly jean with hammer loop details on back with small **carpenter pockets**.
