Original 1940s Private Purchase Khaki Drill Shorts

Code: 51630


An original pair of private purchase Khaki Drill Shorts dating from the 1940s and in good condition.

These shorts are typical of those manufactured in the 1940s. Made from a khaki coloured cotton drill the shorts feature a button fly, high rise waist, single rear pocket and side adjusters. Belt loops are fitted around the waist and the interior features a white cotton waistband and pockets made from the same material. 

The rear seam of the shorts has been altered having a V shape put into it. This has been carefully done and looks like it could be altered back to original if so desired. 

 The shorts will fit around a 34" waist depending on desired fit. When laid flat the shorts measure - 

Waist - 17"
Rise - 15"
Rear rise - 19"
Inside leg - 7"
Outside leg - 20"
Cuff - 16"

The shorts are in good condition for their age and display well. They are still very wearable with only limited signs of age and wear as shown in the pictures.

A nice pair of original shorts with some great details.
