After the M-65 trouser made its way back stateside after the Vietnam war, “cargo” pants and shorts went mainstream (who knew we loved pockets sewn on the outside of our pants this much).
Form, function, and the intrigue of clothing with combat in its DNA, has always fascinated. For this reissue, we kept all the pragmatic function but went with an Italian-cotton Bedford cord fabric, which, as you know, is not a corduroy but rather an extremely strong and durable woven cotton with faint vertical ridging. The results…
All the gritty substance with extra rations of comfort and style.
M-65 Reissue (No.G1014). Pure Italian cotton with some stretchy stuff woven for comfort and fit. The pleated cargo pockets have flaps that are ingeniously sewn down at the inner corners and equipped with snaps at the outer corners to lie flat (even after washing). Deep front pockets and snap-flap back pockets offer unrivaled stow-and-stash security. Engineered seaming on the leg panels. Military-spec buttons. Button fly. 32 ½” inseam. Made in Portugal.
