Pair of blue-grey battle dress trousers. At the waist, there are 3 blue buttons and 2 button holes. They are directly above the silver zipper. There is also a tab with a silver hook with a crown on it. It fits into a silver "loop" that has "WING KEE MADE" imprinted on it. At each side of the waist are 2 buttons and a tab with one button hole on it to adjust the waist. There is a brown fabric lined pocket on either side. The trousers are pleated at the front. At the back, on the right side, is a pocket with a button and button hole to close it. The trousers are pressed and there is a crease running the length of the trousers on the front and back. The pants are hemmed. On the inside, the waist is lined with blue material and there is a tab (used for hanging), at the centre back. At either side, is a strip of striped fabric (maybe used to reinforce sides). The brown lining of the 2 side pockets is visible as is the white stitching on the seams.
