An original pair of US Navy Private Purchase Denim Dungarees by 'Seafarer' dating from 1985.
This pattern of trousers was used by the US Navy for many years with the pattern remaining more or less unchanged. They are made from denim and feature two patch pockets to the front and two more to the rear. Belt loops can be found to the waist whilst a brass 'Talon' branded zipper closes the fly. The top of the fly features a chrome pop stud which features the brand name 'Seafarer'.
The trousers are cut with a flared or 'bell bottom' shape to the leg as was traditional for naval trousers. They have clearly never been worn or issued as they still have their original paper tags to the outside. The card label features period graphics, the size and the words 'Made in America'.
Inside the trousers retain their original paper makers label which states the manufacturers name along with a variety of other details including washing instructions. The manufacture date of 3 April 1985 is also present.
The trousers are designed to fit a 36" waist and a 34" inside leg and when laid flat the trousers measure -
Waist - 17 3/4"
Inside leg - 34 1/2"
Outside leg - 46"
Rise - 13"
Rear rise - 15"
Cuff - 12"
The trousers are in unworn condition and are still very wearable. There is a light mark across one leg etc but overall they are very good. They are a vintage pair of trousers however so may have small issues consummate with age.
A very good pair of vintage dungarees!
