68 Pattern DPM Trousers In Larger Sizes


Recommended Posts

Did they ever make 68 pattern trousers in a 44" waist?

 

Cheers

In short - no. As Jon has already said anything that big would be special order.

 

The largest waist sizes are size 3,6 and 9 - 3 short, 6 medium, 9 tall (more giraffe actually) but all three with waist sizes: 8595 or 85cm to 95cm = 33.5in to 37.5in

Thought it was a max of 40" waist but then again I have lost a little weight. You could try putting in a gusset (I think thats how you spell it) or alternativly either go on a crash diet (Tried that myself ended up putting on more weight..lol) or use repro lightweights which cover the size you need.

The '68 pattern trousers persisted into the 1980's with a sizing system that had remained largely unchanged since the 1940's...until the MoD finally realised that the average male had increased in size meantime.....

 

Never seen a "special" size trousers (eg: demanded for the odd-size individual) even though they were listed as available to demand in any size from the contractor.....I suspect cost + paperwork + QM = too much bother......I well remember an outsize individual in my unit having to squeeze into size 9 DPM's with the stores response "wear 'em or go naked....and now f**k off !".....
