1930's Tweed "Man O War" Gym Trousers
Adorable, early 1930s, tweed sports pants. Made by the vintage brand, ‘Man O War,’ which formed in the early part of the 1920s and specialized in gym attire. The trousers sit high on the waist, with wide hips, a slight drop crotch, gathered pant legs, and button closures that fasten at the waistband and ankles. Additionally, thick square belt loops sit at the top of the waistband.
