This is a pair of US Air Force Military Extreme Cold Weather Type F-1B Trousers dated 1962 Vietnam Era. Fully lined with a wool / cotton blend and ribbed hems these are guaranteed to help beat the elements. Made by H. Bernstein & Co, in the USA. These also come with the original braces and US Air Force front waist print.
Used and overall in very good vintage condition with minimal signs of wear, there are some holes to the hem ribs and one seam on the back right (as worn) seat area has come away a little but the seam is still sound.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new, 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.
