These are the
shortened "Cut-Down" canvas leggings worn by US Army soldiers while serving in the field
specifically in the European Theater of Operations. To the best of our
knowledge this field modification was done for comfort/convenience
purposes. There is substantial photographic evidence that soldiers
all over the ETO shortened their leggings.
We make these in heavy duty robust cotton duck dyed in OD #3
(Not Khaki #1), with authentic eyelets, hooks, custom made laces, and
webbing buckles and square tips. Hooks are guaranteed not to pull out.
