Second Pattern trousers issued throughout W.W.II. They feature belt loops and 2 hip pockets with bellows. Trousers are oversized slightly to account for shrinkage. Inseams are 34". These are the same as the 2nd Pattern HBT's, except that they are made in the sage green color.
Sizing/ Shrinkage: Our trouser waist sizes run about one size larger than marked, just like most modern pants (they lie about how thin you are.) Levi's, Docker's, and Wranglers are the same way.
So, what size do I wear?
1. If you wear a "size 34" in Gap jeans, Docker's, etc, etc, then our 34 will work. (They measure 35.5 -36 actual).
2. However, dress slacks and original pants do NOT lie. If you wear a 34 in originals, or you tape measure 34 inches, then you can wear our 32.
If you think I'm lying or trying to cover up a mistake, too bad so sad- I'm not. Get a tape measure and see what your waist really is. Or just measure your favorite pants if you can't face the fat. You'll be calling Jenny Craig or Nutri-System immediately afterwards...
WARNING! Like all cotton pants (or shirts) the inseam will shrink when washed! Our inseams are accurate, 34" when new. Final shrinkage is 1.5-2 inches on the inseams. Do not hem them until after you have washed them!
WASHED OR ALTERED GARMENTS ARE NOT RETURNABLE.
