US Navy Denim Bell-Bottoms
• Blue Denim
• Dated from the 1980's
• Vintage US Navy Bell Bottoms
• Made in USA
The bell bottom trousers were adopted by the US Navy for a lot more than the stylish look, popularized in the 70's. The bell bottom trouser was introduced for sailors to wear in 1817. The new design was made to allow the young men who washed down the ship's deck to roll their pant legs up above their knees to protect the material. This modification also improved the time it took to take them off when the sailors needed to abandon ship in a moment's notice. The trousers also doubled as a life preserver by knotting the pant legs.

I ordered these pants as part of my Halloween costume and they were perfect for that, but I'm sure they'd be just as good for real work on a boat
I have been wearing my original dungarees for 20 years and I want to get another 6 pair and these were exactly the same and fit great. Will be purchasing more soon
They were a nice pair of bellbottoms, a little bit bigger than I anticipated them to be though but overall really good.
