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. Washed-down cotton, generous cut, four big pockets, and distinctive, slimming cummerbund waistband with buckles and adjustment straps. (Originally an economy measure [fewer sizes needed] that could be tightened when troops lost weight in the field; now good [for opposite reason] on gastronomic campaigns.) Unfinished inseam at 39". Hemmed or cuffed to order.

Men's even sizes: 32 through 46.

Hemming (max: 37") or cuffing (max: 34"), add $2 per pair. Please allow an additional 2-3 business days for alterations.

The pants are great
I am having problems with the buckles at the waist. The metal part that pokes through the holes to adjust the size doesn't lay flat. It stands up through the hole and catches on other clothing. I don't know why the buckles are not metal, it would be easier to thread the strap to adjust the waist

run quite small
These seem to be fine pants but they run quite small. This is particularly silly for pants that are built to be able to be tightened. I feel a bit bad about returning them a second time for a larger size, but while having to size up to a 36 is unusual for me, for the 36 to still be too tight is, well, a first!
