Dark Shade HBT Trouser Size*:

Description Sizing Information

Reproduction of the standard issue HBT (herringbone twill) trousers in the darker od#7 issued to all US Army troops (and some Marines) during WWII. These appeared in 1943 and were the most common combat/ fatigue trouser for the remainder of the War.
Our HBT's are patterned directly from originals, and have a full seat and thigh to provide freedom of movement in training and combat. These were never intended to be dress or parade uniforms.

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, J. Crew, LL Bean, 5.11's, etc 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, suit pants and original WWII trousers do NOT lie. If you wear a 34 in originals, or you tape measure 34 inches, then you can wear our 32.

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!

100% cotton.
