Vintage 80s British RAF Cotton Tropical Military Shorts 30 W

£45.00 GBP

  • This is a pair of vintage British RAF Tropical Shorts with a zip fly front and two waist side cinches. These are dated to circa 1980s based on the label codes and were manufactured by F.W Narmer & Co. Ltd, in England.


    Used and in great vintage condition, these hardly look to have been worn. 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.


    COLOUR: Light Brown


    SIZE: We recommend for size 30W. No size label and the actual full waist measurement is 32in, so these should be a good fit for size 30W, which allows room for a comfortable fit, as modern shorts are now typically 1 to 2” bigger than the actual waist size to allow for them being worn lower on the waist more like jeans - but it depends how loose you like to wear.


    FABRIC: 100% Cotton


    DETAILS:

    - Zip fly front

    - Clasp waist
    - 2 side entry welt pockets 

    - Rear button entry welt pocket

    - Waist side cinch belts

    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 (if applicable) on a flat surface:

    B - THIGH WIDTH - point where the legs meet at the crotch straight across: 13in (33cm)
