    About this item

    An original pair of British Army 1960 Pattern Combat Trousers in good clean condition and in a size 5.

    These trousers came into use with the British Army in the 1960s and were based on the 1952 Pattern uniform issued to British troops serving in Korea. These trousers would have been issued as part of a set which included a matching combat jacket.

    The trousers are made from a plain olive green coloured cotton satten and feature a First Field Dressing pocket to the right hip and a map pocket to the left thigh. The trousers also have reinforced knees, slash pockets to the hips and belt loops. A metal zipper closes the fly and is marked 'Clix' to the front.

    Inside the trousers both original labels are still present. One label is an instruction label whilst the other is the issue label. The label states the size as No. 5 and the manufacturer as 'James Smith & Co. (Derby) Ltd'. Below this is the A78 contract number which dates the trousers to the early-mid 1970s.

    The Trousers will fit a 31" - 32" well and when laid flat they measure - 

    Waist - 16"
    Rise - 15 1/2"
    Rear rise - 18 1/2"
    Inside leg - 32 1/2"
    Outside leg - 47"
    Cuff - 8 1/4"

    The condition of the trousers is very good with only small signs of wear and use. They display very well and are still very wearable but are of course a vintage, pre-owned item which may have small issues commensurate with age. They are a clean pair overall which are still fresh and have seen little wear, if any. 

    All in all a very clean pair of combat trousers in a good size and with a nice clear label.
