A follower on Facebook sent me these photos and I said, “Oh, yeah! I’ve been meaning to do a post about Gurkha Pants!”
Well, the first thing I learned was they are NOT CALLED Gurkha Pants!
They were sold as British Army Drill Trousers. They have the same cross over, built-in belt at the waist as the design of the famous Gurkha Shorts, and were in some cases shown on the same page. I just thought that if there were Gurkha Shorts of COURSE there were Gurkha Pants. “Dashing on men and quite flattering on women,” these timeless designs were from a bygone age but felt right at home in the 80s. They were a part of the BR line for many years, even preceding the GAP.
