An original pair of 1940s black coloured sports shorts made by 'Bukta'.
This style of shorts was used for sports throughout the 1940s by civilians but it is not uncommon to find civilian examples such as this as part of uniform groupings. The shorts are made from a black coloured, extra lightweight cotton and feature a short buttoning fly to the front. The waist is elasticated and inside the original label is present which features the classic graphics used on many Bukta items from this period. The size of 36 is marked on the label as are the words 'Made in England'.
The shorts are elasticated so can fit a number of sizes around a 36" waist. When laid flat they measure 14 1/2" and when stretched out the measure 18".
The shorts are in very good condition with only limited signs of wear and use. Overall they display very well but please take time to study the pictures before purchasing.
Altogether a nice pair of original 1940s shorts ideal for both the collector and re-enactor.
