You all know how much of a fan of US Navy denim I am, and I'm always happy to present another beautiful piece! Introduced in 1943/44 this pattern of denim dungaree is part of the archetypal WW2 USN working uniform. They were made with a loose fit through the leg so they could be removed quickly in water and used as an improvised floatation device. This was combined with lightweight denim to help them dry quickly, though this has meant many have been lost to time or torn and repaired. It's remarkably hard to find a pair in both as good condition as these, but also in a size big enough to fit a modern body shape!
There is a name dyed into the reverse and a very faint service number, so it could be possible to trace the original owner if you so desire!
In beautiful worn vintage condition, amazing strong blue colour with some fading, and the denim is very much still wearable. No holes, tears or repairs to be seen on these beauties.
