What exactly is the reason that the older Brit pants have the button down belt loops? I havent ever been able to think of why
Thanks,this is turning out to be a labour of love, every pair I seem to pick up,has a slightly differnt pattern,I am determined to classify these types,I found out today that DPM's made in Northern Ireland ,have a distinct differnce in the Brown hue's.....so now I'm gonna have to dig through the whole lot and try and work out which ones were made in Ni
As far as I can tell,after some more research!!!...button down belt loops,are a feature of 66 pattern onwards-up until S95's.
The only reason I could find was ,so these trousers could be worn with sable belts,and Webbing belts...this still don't make sense,...the thing I can think of is maybe the belt buckles were too wide,to fit through the belt loops,hence the button off feature.....this is based on vauge references,and my own British sense of Logic
Thanks again mate
