An original pair of British Khaki Drill Trousers dating from the Second World War and in good condition.
The trousers are typical of wartime period British military trousers featuring a high-rise waist, wide leg, slash hip pockets and a single rear pocket. They have a button fly and a tabbed waist fastening and two buttons to choose from to the interior. Belt loops are found positioned around the waist and waist adjusters are located to each hip - a typical period feature.
Being of private purchase origin there are no labels or markings. The stitching and the material used for the pocket bags are typical of theatre made items however as are the buttons which are a mix and include zinc examples as are often found on Indian made items.
The trouser will suit someone of around a 30" waist and when laid flat the trousers measure -
Waist - 15"
Rise - 14 1/2"
Rear rise - 18"
Inside leg - 29 1/2"
Outside leg - 42"
The trousers are in well used condition with signs of use or wear and use. There are some small holes, some period repairs and lots of wear. Please bear in mind that these are a vintage pair of pre worn trousers and may have small issues commensurate with age.
A well worn pair of original trousers with some flaws which are reflected in the price.
