Vintage 90s Polo Ralph Lauren Double Pleated Front Check Chino Shorts 30 WRegular price £45.00 GBP
The Ralph Lauren Corporation started in 1967 with men's ties. At 28 years-old, Lauren worked for the tie manufacturer Beau Brummell, where he persuaded the company's president to let him start his own line. Drawing on his interests in sports, Lauren named his first full line of menswear 'Polo' in 1968.
This is a pair of mens Polo Ralph Lauren double pleated front check cotton chino shorts with side cinch waist belts. The internal label dates these to circa 1990s. Made in the USA.
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear and abrasion throughout. There is some fraying to the waistband metal bar fastener but this still functions fine. 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.
SIZE: We recommend for size 30W. No size label visible 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, and for a comfortable fit - but it depends how loose you like to wear. The best thing to do is to check the waist on your own shorts that fit you well using the size help diagram (please see below for all key measurements to ensure a good fit).
FABRIC: 100% Cotton
- YKK brass zip fly front
- 2 front side pockets
- 1 coin pocket
- 2 rear jetted pockets
- Cinch waist adjusters
- Branded patch logo
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.
