History of Gurkha Trousers
Designed to be practical, the Gurkha trousers and shorts take their origin from Nepal, more precisely : the Kingdom of Gorkha.
Like many other famous designs in the history of tailoring, Gurkha trousers were designed for military purposes. Rooted in British military tradition but modified specifically for use by the Nepalese Gurkhas elite troops after the Anglo-Nepalese war.
The Gurkha trousers and shorts signature is a double-pleated front and high, cummerbund-style waistband with buckle fastenings.
