Nostromo crew trousers from Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror Alien. The crew wore their trousers throughout the film as they tried to fight off the ship's deadly interloper. The Nostromo crew's uniforms were designed by John Mollo, who was inspired by the work of French artist Moebius. The pockets of this pair appear to match Lambert's (Veronica Cartwright) death scene through distinctive folds and creases on the front left pocket. However, it seems these trousers were later repurposed for Ian Holm’s character, Ash.
The trousers are made of cotton and dyed light blue. They feature belt loops with press studs around the waist and Velcro fastenings on the pockets and leg cuffs. "IH (2)" is handwritten in black pen inside the waistband. The trousers have faded over time back to white and have lost a belt-loop stud. Modified for use in subsequent productions, the trousers' knee patches show evidence of alteration and the large shin pockets seen in the film are no longer present.
Estimate: £2,000 - 3,000 M
