In 1814, Britain dispatched 30,000 troops to Nepal. The arrogant British officers and soldiers thought they could crush 12,000 Nepalese Gurka soldiers with their fine equipment. This army was mainly composed of mountain people. On the contrary, the British army won two years' bloody victory. This war is a lesson for the British, and they are impressed by the fighting capacity of the Gorkha soldiers. After peace, Britain signed a treaty with Nepal and enjoyed the privilege of recruiting Gurka soldiers, a tradition that continues to this day. GURKHA PANTS or GURKHA SHORTS were used by British soldiers employed in the 1940s and 1950s. Because of its special status, the appellation of this kind of trousers has been retained.
The military trousers with the belt adjustment function began to emerge after World War II. Front waist with double fold, the left and right sides of the adjustable loop retractable space can adapt to weight fluctuation caused by the waist girth changes, just pull your hands left and right, trousers will hang firmly on the waist, completely replacing the external belt. This is something that no other pants have set before and even has affected the fashion world. Its high waist setting will adjust the loops to look like medieval aristocratic waistbands. Of course, there are different opinions about this design, but it is undeniable that it still exists in a tepid fashion world.
The design of high waist double pleated double side cloth belt and wide trouser tube ensures comfort and range of movement, and takes into account the neatness and rigor required by the military uniform. The special custom sand washed twill can be restored to the British classics.
Great fit and good quality
Great quality and the fit is great!
Customer service was good too.
A decent high rise trouser for a great price. I bought one of each colour. Overall these are very nice pants for the price. Decent fabric, overall good construction, and of course that nice vintage fit.
My two pairs had a few flaws which I had to fix. Firstly, the buttons on the fly and pockets were coming off when I got them, an easy fix with a needle and thread. Secondly, the inseam length is listed as 34", but both of my pairs measured 29"? This is a bit too short for me, and gave them a "highwater" look. I unpicked the hem and restitched them with as little a hem allowance as possible, allowing me to just squeeze out an extra inch of fabric, now they just fit me, whew!
As for the fit, I too decided to size up on these, and I'm glad I did. I'm a 34" waist but went for the size 10 to be safe, and the fit on the waist is perfect.
Overall, great pair of pants.
Perfect product, perfect size!
Awesome pants, great quailty!
I'm a size 34/86cm waist and bought the size 8. They fit perfectly and I do them up on the lower end of the holes.
I really don't think Mr. Phoenix is a true 34 but a fashion 34 which is usually more towards the size 36+
Always use true measurements when buying online!
Pants are awesome, like description and photos.
Maybe I should have bought a size more, I usually wear a W34 and I can wear the size 8, that I purchased, at the largest position, using the last holes available.
I hope I won't gain weight in the future!
However, we are talking about a beautiful replica of a historical garment, well made and of quality.
I will purchase again form this guys!
I really like these pants. Sturdy construction, awesome style! I'll be buying another pair.
