Description Sizing Information

These trousers have 4 pockets, button fly, spec labels & belt loops. These replaced the denim pre-War fatigues and were gradually replaced by the second pattern HBT's from mid-1943 onwards. Nevertheless, these were used until the end of the War.Original 1st pattern trousers could have pocketing made from white twill or the same HBT as the outside. I own originals in both variations. We opted for the twill as it's a bit more comfortable. All Inseams are 34".

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 out 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!

Material: 100% cotton herringbone twill in sage green. The color is a dead-on match to originals. Unlike our US made fabrics we used in the past, this material has never had any sort of colorfastness problems. Sad, but true. These uniforms are imported.

Washing instructions: We recommend cold wash (machine or hand) and hang dry for all cotton uniforms. These uniforms will survive washing in warm or hot water and machine drying, such actions will speed up fading and decrease the life of the garment(s).
