An original pair of 'S.D. Pantaloons, Motor Cyclists' Clearly dated 1942 and in fantastic unissued condition.

These early war breeches are made from the heavier whipcord material and feature brass buttons to the fly and around the waist for braces.

The interior of the breeches features the War Department broad arrow marking which is surmounted by the letter 'O' which denotes 1942 as the year of issue. The number 10 is also marked in ink which most likely denotes the size.

When laid flat the breeches measure -

Waist - 15"
Inside leg - 26 1/2"

The breeches are in very good condition as is clear in the pictures. They exhibit next to no signs of wear or use with even the suede thigh patches being relatively free of marks and stains. They are of course a vintage item of almost 80 years old so may have small issues commensurate with this.

A very nice pair of original DR Breeches in great condition and nicely dated. Ideal for the collector and re-enactor alike!
