Personally, and this is not a comment about, just a choice, I don't wear military pants with my military jackets. It feel too dressed up and I prefer jeans but those HBT are really nice...
I just wanted to rbounce on that. For 99.5% of the people, our military jackets are just leather jacket, nothing more, nothing less. Same for the trousers, if they are not camouflaged and/or have big baggy pockets on the side, they are just trousers to a vast majority of people. So I don't mind about it too much :)

As a matter of fact, I'm wearing my WPG M1937 trousers with a Sun Surf aloha shirt today!

Hey Cocker,

I agree that most people can't correctly identify original OD combat trousers from G-star or The Gap olive green cargo pants, that's for a look or fashion, and it's fine!

My interest in military garments is stimulated on many levels (Confection, material, color, history, time frame...) and I have a personal no cross zone on many levels too, it's just me, no judgement.

That being said, I found some first pattern HBT on rakuten from Buzz.

@Grant what do you think of these, close to originals?


Thanx,
Dany

Not everyone has to be a Marine.

ATF have first pattern.. (slightly more subtle) HBTs on special right now. I was going to grab another pair but the shipping leapt beyond US$100..

Pitter patter....

I agree with Cocker, most people could care less about our jackets or what we're wearing, and freely admit I'm a geek preferring wearing vintage (old) clothes. Sooo, if I'm going to wear repro stuff, generally I like to get as close as possible to the originals.
Amen on that!

I also get the odd look when wearing my Buzz chinos as the fashion is pretty taper or skinny.
:mad: Men should NOT give men odd looks just because their pants are big! Not unless the waist is down around your butt, and you've got an MLB cap with the brim flatter than a smokey cover and a friggn PRICE TAG on it.

As it is, they're just jealous that you are comfortable while they're packing their a**es into tight pants, all because of a bunch of skinny men who (nttawwt) like looking at boyish figures.
