An original pair of British khaki cotton shorts made in the 1920s.
These shorts are typical of early shorts in design. They feature a flat front and a narrow leg which give the shorts a typical Edwardian to 1920s look when worn. They are made from a cotton drill material which has a deeper hue to the colour than later shorts and is typical of Khaki Drill items made for the military in the Great War and early inter-war period. The shorts feature a button fly which fastens with brown plastic buttons. Belt loops are located around the waist and straight slash pockets can be found to the side seams.
The shorts will suit someone of a 28" waist and when laid flat they measure -
Waist - 14 1/4"
Rise - 11"
Rear rise - 14"
Inside leg - 8"
Outside leg - 18"
Cuff - 9"
The condition of the shorts is good, especially considering their age. There are only limited signs of wear and use and they are still very wearable. Please take time to study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that these are a vintage, pre-owned pair of shorts which may have small issues commensurate with age.
A nice pair of early British shorts with some great details.
