These are produced in a very soft black leather that has some minor wear from use. There is a small (3”) seam separation on the upper left leg (I have photographed this), this is not torn, just separated. There is a small repair at the lower buttock area. There are vertical slash type pockets at the hips. A cinch belt (with metal buckle marked “prima”, missing claws) is seen at the rear. A four-button fly is utilized, also seen at the upper waist is a metal hook and loop. All buttons, including those for the suspenders, are present and produced in a black bakelite. The interior of the pants is fully lined (including the entire length of the legs) with a grey cloth. There are a few holes in the cloth, including one in the interior pocket. Affixed to the left front interior, by the fly, is a maker’s cloth label that indicates production by Fedor Schmieder of Berlin. Also noted here are the sizes of the garment. The right front has some handwritten information, most likely that of the owner. These are fairly large as (of course) they were meant to be worn over other clothing. That being said, they will fit someone standing about 5’7” to 5’8” tall, with a waist of up to about 34”. A sound example overall!
