Full description:

A pair of green-brown over-trousers with beige stitching. They are made of a single layer of fabric, reinforced with a second layer between the knees and hips. They are higher at the back than at the front, and have a drawstring waistband with a rope drawstring. There are two white textile tape ties on each ankle, both stitched to the inside leg. There is a pocket in a different fabric on right side at the back. There is a split at the crotch seam of the trousers – this may be deliberate for displaying on a mannequin.
