Vintage 90s British RAF Cotton Tropical Military Shorts 36 W
This is a pair of vintage British RAF Tropical Trousers with a zip fly front and two waist side cinches. These are dated to circa 1990s based on the internal label codes.
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 36W. No size label and the actual full waist measurement is 39in, so these should be a good fit for size 36W, 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: Cotton Blend
- 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:
A - WAIST - straight across the waistband (double for full waist): 19.5in (49.5cm)
B - THIGH WIDTH - point where the legs meet at the crotch straight across: 14in (35.5cm)
C - HEM - width of leg opening (double for full circumference): 9in (22.5cm)
D - RISE - point where the legs meet at the crotch to waistband top edge: 13.5in (34cm)
E - INSIDE LEG - point where the legs meet at the crotch to the hem: 27.5in (69.5cm)
F - OUTSIDE LEG - top of the waistband to the hem: 40in (101.5cm)
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.
