Reproduction of the standard issue trouser for all Army (including Air Corps) personnel throughout WWII. These pants were worn both in the field and with the Service Coats or Ike Jackets. Our reproductions are made from wool serge cloth custom woven in the correct WWII olive drab shade. (It looks like an olive brown).
Our trousers are the Wartime cut which have a high waist, full thigh and seat. Trousers made from the 1930's until mid-1942 had a a closer fit like normal dress trousers, which looks far more attractive but field use leads to split seat and crotch seams. Complaints from the troops were dismissed by the QMC at first, but a deluge of letters from officers finally led to the pattern being altered. The thigh, seat and rise were substantially increased to give better freedom of movement for squatting, kneeling, crawling and running.
These do not include the suspender buttons, you can buy those with the suspenders on the site.
Our sizing is equivalent to all casual modern trouser sizes such as Gap, J.Crew, LL Bean, Levi's, etc..
If you wear a 36 in jeans, our 36 will fit.
All inseams are 34 inches.
Dry Clean or....
Other Cleaning Options:
1. Hand wash in the sink or a bucket and air dry- as in the open air, on a clothes line. Not in a dryer!
2. I have had good luck with the "hand washables" setting on the new high efficiency washing machines. This is NOT equivalent to the "gentle" cycle on older machines. Air dry, as above- not in a dryer but outside in the air you breathe.
