Original 1940's Women's Land Army breeches.
Calf-length breeches made from light brown corduroy, they are cut wide at the hips and narrow at the calves and feature a fall-front, secured on either side of the waist by three buttons. There are two belt loops to the front and two to the back and they have lace up cuffs.
The tag on these is very faded but shows they are for a size 4 which was a 27" to 29" waist and I believe it says 5ft 4" to 5ft 5".
Inner leg 24"
Outer leg 34"
Widest point across the seat is 25"
They are in good, strong condition. The fabric is all in good order with no damage but there are a few points to note;
- slight wear on the left leg above the lace section
- there are some marks on them, see the photos for details. I have washed the breeches and the marks have not come out. Marks are especially bad on the left leg and looks like oil - possibly from a bicycle or tractor.
