Vintage 60s Vietnam US Army ERDL Camouflage Tropical Combat Trousers L ShortRegular price £75.00 GBP
This is a pair of vintage Class 2 US Army Wind Resistant Ripstop Cotton Poplin ERDL Camouflage Tropical Combat Trousers dated 1969. Made in the USA. The ERDL pattern, also known as the Leaf pattern is a camouflage pattern developed by the United States Army at its Engineer Research & Development Laboratories (ERDL) in 1948. It was not used until the Vietnam War, when it was issued to elite reconnaissance and special operations units beginning early 1967 and was used up until 1979.
Used and overall in good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration throughout. These have a great washed well worn look. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.
All my 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.

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.
EXTERNAL MEASUREMENTS: Please check against a similar garment of your own that fits you well, measuring flat and fully zipped or buttoned up on a flat surface.
