An original pair of British military physical training shorts dating from the 1940s or 1950s.
This style of shorts was used by the British Army and RAF during the Second World war for physical training and were often referred to as 'PT Shorts'. The shorts are made from a lightweight, blue coloured cotton drill and feature a short button fly. Inside the shorts the original label is still present and is typical of those found on issue examples from the Second World War and 1950s. The designation 'Shorts P.T. is visible as is the size of 34 and the War Department broad arrow marking.
When laid flat the shorts measure -
Waist - 17"
Rise - 13 1/2"
Rear rise - 15"
Inside leg - 6 1/2"
Outside leg - 17"
Cuff - 12"
The shorts are in worn, used condition. Please study the pictures and bear in mind that these are a pre-owned pair of vintage shorts.
A good pair of original mid century shorts with some great character!
