Description

This pair of shorts most likely dates from the 1910’s, 1920’s, and into the 1930’s. As you can see in the close-up, the original cotton laces are still on the back of the waistband.

These generic shorts could have been worn for gym class or a sport such as football, basketball, or track and field.

The shorts are in excellent condition and appear to be unworn and unused:

1. The color is even and unfaded. Any variation from one photo to the other is due to lighting.
2. The cotton is clean and free of spots, holes, dry rot, bad smells, or perspiration stains.
3. There aren’t any unsightly stains in the crotch.

All measurements were taken while the shorts were lying flat on a table:

1. The waist is 15” (30”).
2. The hips are 17 ½” (35”). This measurement was taken 7” below the waist.
3. The inseam is 10”.
4. The outer seam is 21 ½”.
