This is a vintage British Royal Air Force Aircrew Suit Cold Weather MK3 Trouser with braces, an abundance of pockets for all your kit, and amazing detail throughout. Made in England 1985 and includes the British broad arrow on the internal label.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general heavy signs of wear, abrasion, small areas of fraying/holes, and discolouration throughout with numerous stitch repairs. The left hem has had the drawcord stitched down in one part and part of the string is hanging loose, and the other side is missing the drawstring. These are the real deal and have certainly seen some action.
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.
