Alongside the DENIM DUNGAREE JUMPER the U.S. NAVY DENIM DUNGAREE TROUSERS made up the fatigue uniform of the U.S.N during the Second World War.
The pattern has been diligently recreated to echo the design detailed in the 1941 U.S. Navy Uniform Regulations. These trousers are distinguished by their straight-leg, high-waist cut, a signature of WWII "theater-made" dungarees.
A key characteristic of the original design is the lack of outseams, whereby each leg is cut from a single piece of fabric, running seamlessly from the waist all the way to the inseam. This construction method was practical for sailors and helped them hold air better if removed and used as an improvised flotation device.
The Denim Dungaree Trousers of this period are characterized by large patch pockets at the waist and that curve on the thigh. Here they have been bar-tack reinforced with Cotton thread
The trousers are constructed from a 10oz. Gray Weft Denim and are finished with flat-felled seams. Closed with Urea buttons, the first of which features a U.S.N anchor motif on the 5-button fly. To the back are rear darts and patch pockets.
