Rare, and original, lined, heavy cotton Japanese Imperial Army issue 98 Shiki Gun-i/Type 98 (1938 pattern) winter trousers in very good condition. Made of heavy cotton twill fabric, with thick wool-felt lining throughout the entire garment. Has two slash waist pockets, belt loops, small bakelight fly buttons, and cotton ties for the calf/ankles. Unfortunately the ties on one leg are missing, and there is also a small repair at the opening where the button of the leg flares out.
Also some soiling to the exterior layer of fabric, but the interior is quite clean and unblemished. I cannot find any obvious stamps or markings on these. Size measurements are as follows: waist - 32 inches (81 cm), inseam - 28 inches (71 cm), waist to calf - 40 inches (102 cm). This comes out of a fairly large collection of Japanese military items accumulated over a 40+ year career as a militaria dealer.
