Dark Shade HBT Trouser Size*:

Product Description Sizing Information

Reproduction of the standard issue HBT (herringbone twill) trousers in the darker od#7 issued to all US Army troops (and some Marines) during WWII. These appeared in 1943 and were the most common combat/ fatigue trouser for the remainder of the War.
Our HBT's are patterned directly from originals, and have a full seat and thigh to provide freedom of movement in training and combat. These were never intended to be dress or parade uniforms.

In the original WWII design, the HBT trousers had the pockets positioned at or just below the waistband. This how they were made until the April 1944 contract, when the QMC changed the specs and lowered them several inches. Few if any of those trousers would have made it to Europe in time for June 6th. So, our trousers have the higher D-day pockets.
For more information and photos of originals see the About HBT Uniforms page.

Fit: These are slightly looser fitting than BDU's.

NEW Sizing 2022! These run smaller than before.

Our trouser waist sizes are 1" inch larger the marked size, which will be smaller than most blue jeans or casual pants which are typically 2-3" over the marked size. Thus a size 34 will measure 35".

So, what size do I wear?

1. If one wears a "size 34" in Gap jeans, Docker's, etc, etc, then our size 36 will be best work.
2. Suit pants, some work pants and original WWII trousers are usually accurate. So, if one wears a 34 in originals, or their waist tape measures 34 inches, then they can wear our 34.
3. When in doubt, find a pair of denim or cotton trousers (non-stretch fabric) measure the waist and see which of ours is closest.
Shrinkage warning: Like all cotton pants (or shirts) the inseam will shrink when washed. Our inseams are accurate, 34" when new. Final shrinkage is 1.5-2 inches on the inseams. Do not hem them until after they have been washed!

100% cotton.
