A pair of most wonderful workwear utility shorts, made from a stiff and hardwearing canvas denim, which I believe to be from around the 1940s, maybe earlier. With a high waist fit, these are comfortable and cute, and have many more decades of wear left in them. These were found with a naval cotton shirt that had the same name written inside. 

We advise paying close attention to the actual measurements of the garment. Please get in touch if you have any questions.


• Name written inside the shorts, including perhaps the naval regiment
• Mid blue denim colour
• Pockets to hips, small pocket under waistband, flap pocket to back
• Belt loops
• High waist
• Made from stiff heavy weight canvas denim
• Fastens with button fly


There are some light stains to the front, which are to be expected from work wear, shown in photo


Waist: 33.5in
Hips: 46in
