US jungle trousers, first pattern, repro
If the Americans did something right during the Vietnam war, it's the jungle uniforms. These are a proper good reproduction of the 1st pattern jungle trousers, probably among the best trousers ever made for hot/humid weather. And by a good reproduction we mean these also are well made, along with being almost identical to the originals.
The jungle uniform was made in three patterns during the course of the war. While the general outlook was the same for all of these, the most visible detail of the first pattern was the exposed buttons - on the later models they were hidden under the flaps to prevent snagging.
Pretty much like the classic BDU trousers, but not exactly the same: along with the visible buttons, these have a roomier cut, thinner poplin fabric, tie-strings around the cargo pockets and button-operated adjustment tabs at the waist. Other details are pretty much the same: button fly, 6 pockets total, about 4 cm wide belt loops and drawcords at the cuffs. If you love the BDU cut (who doesn't?), get these for hot weather use!
Wash in 30 degrees.
Sizes according to user's height and waist. The waist can be tightened almost 10 cm with the tabs if needed. Being 100% cotton, these might shrink a bit on the first washing. This is taken into account in the sizing.
If you really want to know, here are the measured sizes, first leg, then waist:
- S-R: 78 / 86 cm
- M-R: 80 / 96 cm
- L-R: 80 / 104 cm
- XL-R: 82 / 110 cm
- 2XL-R: 82 / 118 cm
