A lovely pair of British army serge whipcord breeches, that conform to the pattern used by British & Commonwealth troops during the Great War.
Whilst they are undated or issue marked, they match up closely in detail to several different patterns of breeches that emerge throughout the war. They feature twin sets of brace buttons as per OR service dress trousers and white cotton drill lining. Like some other examples the buttons are made of vegetable composite, appearing on the front and rear of braces, along with the fly front and ankle portions.
The condition is very good indeed, with no real wear or damage, aside from some wear to the ankles. The lining is exceptionally clean with no marks or stains aside from the usual storage wear. There is a slight rip to the corner of the ankle opening.
They are approximately a size 35-36 waist, 25 inside leg and 6.5 at the widest part of the ankle.
Whilst there are unmarked they conform closely to the several patterns to emerge from the Great War and are believed to be a Great War pair.
The slash pockets are at a very slight angle and feature the same white cotton drill lining.
