These shorts takes inspiration from the Gurkha shorts, with its double pleated front, high waist and knee length wide legs opening for optimal airflow. They have been simplified by adding a regular waist band instead of the high, cummerbund-style waistband with buckle fastenings, otherwise characteristic for Gurkha pants.
They have been crafted in a heavy duty black twill with piped seams throughout.
Today, this style is still produced in various forms and colors by fashion designers and manufacturers of military-style clothing – a testament to the enduring style and functionality of this jacket.
The M65 Enhanced version has been done with the scope to enhance all quintessential design elements of the jacket while at the same time staying true to its original design and heritage.
