Original 1950s British Khaki Cotton Work Trousers

Original 1950s British Khaki Cotton Work Trousers

Code: 52213


A rare original pair of British work trousers made in Great Britain in the 1950s.

These trousers are typical of those worn by men in Great Britain in the immediate post-war years. Made from a khaki coloured cotton drill (the same as used on British military items worn in the tropics during the same period and chosen for its hard wearing yet light-weight quality) the trousers are cut in the style of the time with a high rise waist and wide legs. The breech is also generous to allow for easy movement. The bottom of the legs have turn ups as were still popular in the 1950s and the fly fastens with buttons which is another typical British trait of the period. Another nice detail on the trousers is the button and tab waist adjusters found on each side of the trousers. They are very simple in design and typically utilitarian. 

The trousers will suit someone with a 34" waist and when laid flat they measure - 

Waist - 17 1/4"
Rise - 14"
Rear rise - 18"
Inside leg - 32"
Outside leg - 44 1/2"
Cuff - 8 1/2"

The trousers are in good condition with some staining which is quite possibly from storage. They still look to be very wearable but please study the pictures supplied and remember that these trousers are a pre-owned pair of vintage work trousers and may have other issues commensurate with age. 

Vintage British work trousers are now very hard to find today, making these a rarity. These would make an excellent addition to any collection!
