SOLD

An original pair of French khaki tropical trousers dating from the 1940s. 

These trousers were clearly made in theatre rather than in France as they have hand stitched buttonholes and crude stitching which is a typical trait of clothing made in India and similar places before and during the Second World War. The trousers are made from a tan khaki coloured cotton drill material and feature a very wide leg which is typical of the 1930s and 1940s. Belt loops are positioned around the waist and are a shape which is often found on French clothing from this era. The buttons are also typical of the period. 

The trousers will suit a 36" waist and when laid flat they measure - 

Waist - 18"
Rise - 13"
Rear rise - 18 1/2"
Inside leg - 28"
Outside leg - 39 1/2"
Cuff - 11 1/2"

The trousers are in good condition with some signs of wear and age. Overall they display very well and are totally wearable but are a pre-worn pair of vintage trousers of approximately 80 years old so may have small flaws commensurate with age. Please take time to study the pictures before purchasing.
