Kriegsmarine Tropical Shorts. Unissued 34" Waist

A very good unissued and unworn pair of Kriegsmarine tropical shorts with a measured waist size of 34”
Made of a heavy ribbed cotton with a zinc buttoned front fly, they have two diagonal front slash buttoned pockets, a watch pocket and one slash rear buttoned pocket.
Along the waistband are six heavy cotton webbed loops to take the service belt along with the original manufacture’s label. At each side are waist fine adjustment straps with Prima marked buckles. Surface rust from the buckles has transferred onto the cloth in these areas.
Inside, the shorts are profusely marked with the Kriegsmarine clothing depot stamps for Wilhelmshaven with a 1942 date and the manufacture’s name, Muller & Koch again present.
It would be difficult to upgrade these shorts.
