Pants of Glory.

Of all the statues along Whitehall in London (technically, the heart of the British Empire), my favorite is the sturdy Ghurka Soldier.

He stands on permanent guard outside the Ministry of Defense, rifle in hand, hat at a jaunty angle. "Bravest of the brave," reads the memorial inscription, and it's true; Ghurka regiments in service to Britain have won a remarkable 26 Victoria Crosses for courage under fire.

I can't promise that stepping into his pants will make a person more intrepid, but the way they look is a nudge in the right direction.

Ghurka Pants (No. 2363). A full-length version of the tropical-issue shorts, Khaki Drill, 1949 Pattern worn by these fearsome Nepalese recruits.

Shorts as Organism
Have owned these for several years and about to order several more. Shorts as organism: they live with you, expand when you do, and just as important, contract when you do. Buckles, hooks and buttons are sewed on tightnothing pops off, loosens or goes missing. My grown children don't like this style, but that's too bad. They never saw David Niven perform in a pair.

Six Stars!!
If I could, I'd rate these shorts a 6 on a scale of 1 to 5. I had an original pair 30 years ago and nature taking it's course, I outgrew them. They are in my opinion the handsomest of any short out there. The waist adjustment is different but cool. They are also well worth the money and will last a good long time. And - they get better looking with age.
