A hard to find original pair of 1940s RAF officer's service dress trousers in good condition which were made by 'Burberrys'.
This pattern of trousers was worn with the matching service dress tunic throughout the late 1930s and 1940s. They are made from the regulation RAF blue - grey coloured barathea wool and are cut in a typical 1940s style with a high rise waist and wide leg. The trousers feature straight slash pockets and a twin pleated front as well as a button fly. More buttons are fitted around the waist to which braces can be attached. All the buttons are butterscotch coloured as is often found on wartime dated trousers. They also feature the maker's name of 'Burberrys London'. The rear features a 'fishtail' back which is commonly seen pre-war and is rare to find post 1945.
The trousers will suit a 29" waist and when laid flat they measure -
Waist - 14 1/2"
Rise - 13"
Inside leg - 31"
The trousers are in good condition and display well. They look to be very wearable and have no serious flaws or signs of undue wear. There are two very small holes to the rear which is illustrated in picture 9 and one of the pocket bags has a hole in it. Please take time to study the pictures and bear in mind that these are a vintage, pre-owned pair of trousers which may have small issues commensurate with age.
Original wartime period officer's trousers are very hard to find today and these could be paired with a jacket from the same period to complete a set.
