1940's WWII U.S. Navy Denim Trousers

Wow! This really nice personalized pair of denim dungarees sold for $383 recently on eBay. Nice patina with some repairs, this exceeded my thoughts on what they would sell for. Word to the wise when buying a pair of these, the hips are the same as the waist so buy 1 size larger than you normally would.

Still surprising to me...I bought a deadstock pair for $350 at Inspiration earlier this year in the same size. Nice! I can add my own patina with wear.

Somewhat off topic, butI'm curious did the Navy issue bibbed overalls?
