Introduced during the Vietnam War era, the M65 trousers are a tough and weather-resistant version of lighter BDU pants and can be worn along with a well-known M65 jacket as an outer garment in cold and wet climates. These pants can be dated to 1972 via the internal label.
This is a pair of vintage US Army M-1965 Cotton Sateen Military Trousers in Army Shade 107, Olive Green. Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration. There are some faint stains to the front of the pants, however, this does not detract from their quality and character. Freshly laundered and ready for their 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.

Actual trouser waist measurement is 34in so this should be a good fit for a 32 waist or if you typically take jeans in size approx 30W-32W (UK Sizing) as the pants have side cinches but it depends how loose you like to wear (please see below for all key measurements to check against a similar garment of your own to ensure a good fit).

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.
