Bill Thomas set up in 1990 to make khakis in the World War II army pattern when he could no longer obtain them in army surplus stores. He still makes them to the original World War II patterns, to give the same comfort and durability. The 8.5 oz. twill is 100% cotton, American made. The khakis are well constructed, nothing skimped, no corners cut, and your next pair will be the same as your last.
