The M-1951 field trousers were issued during the Korean War and made out of the OG-107 colour way in a cotton sateen fabric. They had pockets similar to that of the M-1941 jumpsuit and were issued during the same time as their M-1951 jacket counterpart. Like the jacket it had a separate cold weather liner that could be removed.
This is a pair of vintage First Pattern US Army Cold Weather Wind Resistant Sateen trousers in Army Shade 107, Olive Green. With these being first pattern trousers we can date these to around 1951 (Korean war era) due to the exposed metal snaps on the front and back pockets, later versions had concealed snap pockets.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion, discolouration and marks. There is fraying to the pockets and hems as well as there being 2 holes to the left leg (as worn). The front left pocket flap has also been replaced due to previous damage. Not quite perfect but still a great bit of kit considering the age and history. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
