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. There are some marks etc but they are good overall. Please take time to study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that they are a pre-owned pair of vintage shorts which may have small issues commensurate with age. 

A nice pair of original shorts with some great details.
