more good work (2020-07-02)
After looking at reviews I ordered up for size and they were large, washing them in warm water and they are still large which is not a bad thing. Construction looks great, they arrived a little slower than predicted (two days, also not a bad thing). I would buy them again when these wear down.

Great shorts and amazingly fast delivery (2020-06-20)
I love these shorts! Takes me back to my days in Tobruk (maybe in my dreams that is). These are very well-made and comfortable to wear. I was amazed to receive them after being shipped from the United Arab Emirates to the US in just 3 or 4 days. My one and only suggestion is that the two straps that fit through the buckles be made a little longer since it is a bit of a tight fit trying to secure them through the buckles. HIghly recommend.

Really good quality and material (2020-06-11)
Great quality and surprisingly quick delivery. They are not pre-shrunk, so order at least 2 inches more than your true waist size. Measure your waist just above the belly-button, as it's high-waisted to take a broad military belt. Oh, if the cinch straps slip on you, just run them back through the buckle like a saddle cinch. They'll hold firmly.

Exactly what I wanted! (2020-06-09)
I love the styling of all the characters on the TV show, The Durrells in Corfu. After doing research I discovered your 1941 khaki shorts were the replica of the shorts Leslie wore. Thank you for the prompt service. The shorts arrived in a timely manner and are exactly what I had hoped for! Thank you!

UK, KD shorts, 1941. (2020-03-07)
Worn very happily, brief-less, for 20 months in Djibouti. Airy, button fly; the lowest button is unnoticed when undone - allowing easy manipulation. Very well made, stitched and buttoned. The buckles slip; a broad belt is comfortable. Proper deep pockets for Mills bombs. Front, right, buttoned FFD pouch for toiletries and mozzie-rep. Perfect length for manly knee and sturdy calf. Confers a boon upon the wearer.

Fast delivery, good fit, waist fasteners don't grip. (2020-01-30)
Arrived in about four days after despatch. Excellent quality reproduction and good fit, however the waist fasteners at the front don't grip the fabric in the waist belts (unless I am not doing them up correctly) and so they slip open every time you bend or sit. Not an issue if you wear a belt. Still a great pair of shorts.

I give my feedback concerning my first
transaction: Everything went fine. The article is as I imagined, in a
good condition/material and the delivery has been very fast. I would
order again if there were articles of interest.

Great repro shorts (2018-08-31)
After the week long holiday in the Emirates the shorts arrived very quickly and certainly lived up to expectations.

Excellent Shorts (2018-08-24)
Very pleased with my 1941 pattern shorts. I usually wear a 36" in jeans, and got the 38" as advised. They are wide-legged and baggy, which makes them super comfortable in the summer. Although I don't have any original pairs of WW2 issue KD shorts to compare these to, I do own a pair of JG Australian Army post-war double buckle shorts, and I would say WPG's fabric is nicer than my originals. The buckles look and feel identical. Another reviewer noted that the waist closure straps tend to slip in the buckles, making them looser whilst wearing the shorts. This, in my experience, also happens with my Australian Army originals, so no loss of authenticity there. The brass buttons on the current batch have rounded edges, so won't cut up the fabric with use, and even have the fabricator's name stamped on the rear, so a nice attention to detail.

Great stuff, great timing (2018-06-19)
The Brit khaki drill shorts came on time, and are a perfect fit. My old ones now go to my son who will make good use of them .
Our next event in Conneaut Ohio will see their next practical use .
Can you make a pair in white, for our Royal Navy impression?

Good material and a good replica (2018-04-25)
It's all very nice, with good sturdy cloth and tailoring. My only criticism are the straps and buckles at the front. The buckles do not grip the fabric of the straps well enough to keep from slipping and coming loose. Fortunately a Sam Brown belt cures the problem. Thicker material on the straps would help. Thank you.

Quick delivery, excellent quality, good service (2017-09-21)
These are sturdy heavy duty, comfortable, and good looking. A little baggy, but that's what they are supposed to be. I'm a 36 waist and ordered 38, which works well. They will shrink on a first normal washing, one to two inches, so keep that in mind. These are the real service grade khaki. I really like them. I've ordered a few things now and the quality has been excellent and true to the original service pattern. I'm a happy customer. Customer service was very responsive, the one time I ever had a shipping glitch, and they corrected it right away.

Fast & Accurate (2017-09-10)
1941 KD's seem to be well made, hardware seems ok; and the sizing is very accurate.
My waist is 36" as measured. Ordered 36, and they fit exactly as they should
Measure where they say, not where you wear jeans (under the beer-belly).
And they look great

Fast delivery (2016-07-17)
I'll start by saying that I liked and am comfortable with my shorts. Even if what I point out is ignored, I'd still buy them.
But a few things to point out. Let's start with the belt buckles. These are small, square and thin. As a result the edges, though sharp, could very well fray and wear the belt straps. Surely this is an easy fix. My other objection is the Brass buttons used throughout. These may be due to wanting to achieve authenticity and be close to the original. If not so, dull plastic buttons would be my preference. But, again, I'm quite happy with them. And oh, BTW the advice to order them one or maybe two sizes bigger is spot on.
Overall, I like my shorts and will be ordering more.
Sizes, so they'll fit.

Would have rated them 5, except for the chrome buckles, which rather spoil an otherwise excellent item.

great product and service yet again (2016-02-16)
I outgrew my first pair of kd British shorts and needed a new pair. I swear the cut has improved since the last time I got these 5 years ago. The brass buttons still slice your flesh under the hot desert sun, just like the originals! Very quick service, thanks again Jerry!

Excellent product & Incredibly fast delivery to AU from the UAE (2016-02-02)
I ordered these shorts in size 46 for my 44" waist. They were much too large, so I put them in a large pot of boiling water and boiled them for about two hours, and then laid them out flat to dry, in the sun. This process, followed by a regular machine wash and drying in the tumble dryer has shrunk them quite well. They are still a 'little bit' on the large side, but that is quite okay, as my weight (and waistline) tends to fluctuate over the course of the year. I will get another pair in size 44 and then I will be set for year round wear and weight fluctuations. The quality of the product is otherwise excellent. A great reproduction.
