During the Second World War the United States Marine Corps were developing new kit in order to meet the new styles of warfare which they were facing. Out of a requirement for an increased amount of gear that needed to be carried, the P-44 'Monkey Pants' were born. Fitted with a large rear pocket designed in order to carry a camouflage poncho and two large frontal cargo pockets to carry k-ration boxes, the pants were crafted from a sturdy cotton herringbone twill which was iconic of the period and finished with 'U.S. Marine Corps' buttons and a drawstring hem for customized fit. The additional weight of this extra kit was accommodated for, with grommets installed around the waist in order to allow suspenders to be worn to ease the load. 

This is a pair of Vintage P-44 'Monkey Pants' Combat Trousers - this pair is dated from the internal stamp to April 1945. These are the most distinctive and well-known trousers employed by the United States Marine Corps and these are the original, real deal.

CONDITION:
Used and in very good vintage condition considering these are circa 80 years old with general signs of wear and abrasion. An iconic bit of kit that is very hard to come by in this condition.


COLOUR:
Olive Green.


FABRIC:
100% Cotton.


FEATURES:
- Two frontal cargo pockets
- Large back pocket
- Original 'US Marine Corps' buttons
- Waist grommets
- Drawstring hem
- Belt loops
- Concealed fly

SIZE: These trousers are printed size 38 in the waistband but we've measured them to have a 36in full external waist so we recommend these for a 34in waist for a comfortable fit.
