Fantastic and rare, this is a genuine pair of 1940s WWII era US Army shorts. Made of olive drab cotton. They feature high waist cut, front and back pockets, buttons at back waistband, and a button fly. In very good condition, showing a washed look to the cotton. No holes or stains. See all photos in detail.
There are no tags. While these were originally men's shorts, these will best fit a modern women size XXS - XS.
