This is a pair of vintage Swiss Army Salt & Pepper Denim Fatigue Prison Pants, with brace buttons and a rear waist cinch belt. Circa 1960s.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion, discolouration and marks. These pants are full of character as they feature darned repairs to the front of the pants, in particular to the crotch, lower left and right leg and a patch repair to the upper right leg (as worn). Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.
Please note these were designed to be worn as over trousers so the side entry access slits are not pockets and do not have pocket bags which means you may potentially be able to see what is being worn underneath them.
All our vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.
COLOUR: Salt & Pepper blue
SIZE: Actual full trouser waist measurement is 38in so this should be a good fit for L / XL or if you typically take jeans in size approx 36in (UK Sizing) or 34in when the waist is cinched in, which allows room for a comfortable fit (please see below for all key measurements to check against a similar garment of your own to ensure a good fit).
FABRIC: 100% Cotton, Mid-weight Twill
- Button fly front
- 2 direct entry pockets
- Rear cinch waist belt

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.
