BUZZ RICKSON'S M-1951 Field Trousers Cargo Pants Olive BR41962


Restock on April 4, 2024

Field trousers with cotton satin lining adopted by the US Army in 1951. Around this time, the Army adopted the M-51 series set-up layered system as combat uniforms for cold regions. A wool field shirt and field trousers were worn over an undershirt and drawers, and a cotton field jacket and field pants were worn over them. All M-51s were loose-fitting to keep body heat in and keep out outside air, with consideration given to wearing them in cold regions. The cord loop on the inside of the waist is a detail for hooking the metal hooks at the ends of the suspenders.
