Product Description

Until 1941, the US Army used a blue denim uniform for fatigue, work and training wear. The same garments were also worn by the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps). Shortly before the US entered WWII, more practical green HBT uniforms were introduced to replace the denims. However, it took some time before these uniforms were fully replaced and they still appear in some wartime photos.

These are the M1940 pattern denim trousers. We copied an unissued original pair exactly: Made from 100% cotton, 10.4 oz. blue denim, they are assembled with interlocking leg and crotch seams for durability. They feature button fly, watch pocket, internal hip pockets and two patch pockets on the rear.

Fit: Like the later HBT trousers, they are cut with a high rise waist, full seat and thigh and straight leg. They were designed as work pants, and are very comfortable and offer good freedom of movement.

The rise is 13.5 inches- whereas most modern men's jeans are 11-12 inches. The look is frumpy- they are definitely not "sexy man" pants. If that's what you're after these are not your trousers.

Inseams on ALL sizes, when new, are 34".


Care: Washer dryer safe, but we recommend cold wash/ hang dry. It takes about 3 washings to soften them up.

Shrinkage: The shrinkage at the waist is nil- maybe 1/4". Inseams will shrink 2 inches so they will be 32" after washing. Do NOT hem them until after they have been washed once.
