  • Straight-leg cut
  • 2 sets of friction buckles and inner belt
  • fly with 6 buttons
  • Scalloped flapped front pockets
  • High right rear pocket
  • No lining but reinforcements made from same fabric.

It was very common for an NCO to wear this trousers with the fliegerbluse as an order of dress.

Historical Information about the Luftwaffe off-white Drillich Uniform

Since the formation of the Luftwaffe, the troops required a Fatigue (Drillich) to serve as an overall and protect the issue uniform while performing barracks drill, indoor cleaning work, training, at the firing range and during combat training. The uniform consisted of an HBT Blouse, based on the fliegerbluse and a pair of straight leg trousers, made from strong linen in HBT weave. The colour of the fabric ranged from raw-gray, to off-white colour and was eventually superseded by a reed-green version in 1943.  

The special working uniform for ground crews, as their service uniform, had exactly the same cut as the Drillich uniform, but dyed in black.
