An original pair of British Jungle Green shorts, dating from the 1960s and in good condition.
These shorts are made from a green dyed cotton drill which is the shade used for all British military jungle shorts and trousers for a number of years. The shorts are cut in a typically 1960s manner with a short rise, tight seat and narrow leg openings. The buttons fasten with green coloured plastic buttons, along with some period replacements. Side adjusters are fitted to each hip which are another nice period detail. The front of the shorts features twin pleats and angled patch pockets, belt loops are fitted around the waist and there is a single rear pocket.
The short will suit around a 30" waist and when laid flat they measure -
Waist - 15"
Rise - 11"
Rear rise - 15 1/2"
Inside leg - 5 1/2"
Outside leg - 15 1/2"
Cuff - 10"
The overall condition of the shorts is very good with some limited signs of wear and age. They display well and are still very wearable but are of course a vintage, pre-worn item which may have small issues commensurate with age.
A nice original pair of shorts which are quite possibly a private purchase pair of military shorts.
