However, we have to use the labels to provide a tracking system for the stock we have available. So the sizes we list will have some interesting additional letters and numbers for our purposes.
Here's a few examples with a brief overview to explain a few of them.
For example - 170/84 = suitable for a person of 170cm height with 84cm waist
For example - GR7 = suitable for a person of 170cm height with 84cm waist
For example - 96/100 i/ii = suitable for a person of 170cm height with 96cm waist
(i/ii = short, iii/iv = regular height, v/vi = tall and vii/viii = extra tall)
For example - 88C = suitable for a person of 170cm height with 88cm waist
(C refers to short, R is Regular, L is Long)
For example - 6080/7080 = suitable for a person of 170cm height with 84cm waist
(The first four digit number i.e. 6080, refers to a height range of 1.80m to 1.90 metres tall. The second four digit number refers to the chest or waist size range, depending on the garment)
Other nations use a variety of random numbering methods where a number is allocated to represent a set height and chest/waist.
Therefore, you can see why we use the simplified method of measuring, and stating chest, waist, jacket drops etc to help you decide.
These genuine French military dress uniform trousers are stylish and durable. Made from a high quality Polyester, they are well tailored as befits well-dressed French military personnel. The French Foreign Legion are one unit that wear these trousers, but the same design is used throughout the nation's land forces. Typically the hems are turned up on the inside and held in place with elasticated bungies.
Chinos are derived from mid-19th century French and British military uniforms for units based in warmer climates, and the chino has become more of a casual fashion item.
Note! These trousers are intended for use tucked into high boots and so the hem is not finished squarely. So the leg will require hemming if they are to be used outside of boots or with shoes. Please see the French Army photo to see them in action.
The lengths we quote are therefore the distance from crotch to hem and if any tailoring is to be done, allow for this in your calculations.
Important Note: The trouser fly may be button or hook and eye, or a combination of the two.
Sizing Note: The letters after the sizing refers to the leg length; C = Short L = Long
