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.

But the sizing is vintage. I ordered the 28 x 32 and they fit closer to a 26/27. Sad to return them
BTW, for those interested - these are a cotton/poly blend.
The Navy has come a long way, the bell bottom are a classic
fits fine, quality is great, and overall worth it!
