Red Kap knows all about “done right”. They have been creating comfortable, durable workwear since starting out in 1923. Red Kap also did their part, pitching in on the war effort by manufacturing gas mask carriers, combat fatigues and field jackets.
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear throughout with bobbling to the internal pocket bags. 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.
SIZE: We recommend for size 32W. The size label states 34 but these are vintage pants and measure true to size, whereas modern pants are now typically 1 to 2” bigger than the actual waist size to allow for them being worn lower on the wasit more like jeans, and for a comfortable fit, so these should be a good fit for size 32W - 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: 65% Polyester, 35% Cotton
- YKK metal zip fly front
- 2 side waist pockets

- 2 rear welt pockets, one with button fastening
- Belt loops
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:

D - RISE - point where the legs meet at the crotch to waistband top edge: 14in (35.5cm)
