Tanker overalls- tank crews had specially designed trousers, helmets and other clothing to facilitate their work in cramped quarters that were always too hot or too cold. "Trousers, combat, winter" is the correct nomenclature for the "tanker overalls".

This is the companion to the "tanker jacket" or "jacket, combat, winter". The trousers were made of the same 8.2 oz cotton shell and wool blanket lining as the jacket, cut in the style of bib-overalls as you can see in the top photo on the page. The first pattern had suspenders stitched to the overalls on both front and back.

The second pattern had attachment hardware in front, suspender adjustment clips, plus a groin zipper for relief. There are slits at the bottom of each leg to facilitate putting on or removing the trousers with the boots on.

Overalls are in good shape especially considering they are almost 100 years old, some moth holes on the interior wool lining have been stitched and a small wool patch has been applied to a hole too big to stitch up; these have been cleaned. Rise(from top of bib to inseam) 24. Top of bib to cuff 51. This item is made of cotton twill and wool.
