Mostly pleased (2022-12-28)
First, sizing. I've ordered several KD pants/shorts but I always read reviews where sizing is noted. What this means is that sometimes I order up one and sometimes order "true" (WPG recommended) sizes and this generally works out. For the bloomers I ordered "true" but should have ordered one size up. Just a tad snug but then again I have my winter weight on so come summer and I these few pounds, they should be fine. I will not be washing these in warm water though!
Next quality. Generally very well made but the middle of the right front pocket got sewn to the inseam so I could not get my hand in. Had to cut the stitching and re-sew. The stitching was quite heavy and as a result, the pocket itself was cut while un-stitching and I had to repair that as well. This was why I knocked it down to 4 stars. Everything else was good, including the button holes which were not undersized!
Overall, happy enough with these that I would still recommend them if one asked me.

Versatile garmi (2022-05-24)
Super fast delivery and awsome quality and fit. True to the originals. If you don't want the extra high-water bell-botom look when you roll them down, just sew an extra button on the hem of each leg to put into one of the hem button holes and you can taper the legs for a different configuration when the legs are unrolled. I'll be ordering another pair. Perfect for a high desert summer! (hot during the day and cold at night)

I like 'em. (2021-06-19)
I'm a 36 and that size was too small. I swapped out and ended up with 42's as that was all that was left. I anticipated cutting them down to resize as I sew for a hobby. Well, they fit. Don't ask me how. It seems to be missing one belt loop. No biggie I'm shortening them and will scavenge some material and add it.

Great quality and fit. Would look just like the real thing with some aging. Excellent service, as usual and remarkably fast shipping.

Best repro gas cape I've come across (2020-12-29)
A must for WW2 British reenactors, as the originals are rare as hens teeth. These are also more convenient, as they do not smell bad like the originals! It would be nice if WPG made an accompanying gas hood / helmet cover to go along with it. Excellent service, as usual and remarkably fast shipping.

loved how fast I got them (2020-08-29)
Just wish I could have had a 44 waist but hey still great shorts.If you ever get 44 waist could you let me know?

Bombay Bloomers (2020-06-30)
A great reproduction of the classic Bombay Bloomers. The only reason I've had to replace my original pairs is that I've lost weight and they no longer fit.

Great Price, Nice Shorts! (2020-05-21)
They fit nicely and are very comfortable. A piece of historic clothing for less than the price of new shorts.

Bombay bloomers (2020-03-12)
As always arrived quickly ! I have always wanted a pair and finally I was able to find one here it WPG. Kudos gentlemen, they are awesome. Extremely unique, well-crafted, very true to size. I have a 38 waist at the Naval and that’s exactly what I ordered and that’s exactly how it fits. It’s perfect. Workmanship is very nice, I must say for reenacting and as well for summer shorts around the house, They are awesome. As always the quality and workmanship is there, I can’t say enough good things about them.

Fast delivery (2019-12-27)
Very happy with the garment. My only complaint would be the two buckles which secure the waist. They constantly 'slip' so that they need to re-tightened.

Once again, a nice item ! (2019-08-27)
These shorts look to be a real good quality one, and thea appear quite solid ! Ordered size 44, my waist goes perfectly in ! they just seem to be a little short in length when long, but looking photos, it seems to be normal. Short, just perfect ! Thanks WPG !

Excellent Price and Reasonably Assembled (2019-08-17)
These Bombay Bloomers arrived in a reasonable time from UAE; they’re well stitched with consistently lined up button holes which are sized appropriately; they fit high waisted and comfortably. The brass buttons appear sturdy and are well attached; when the legs are buttoned up they are evenly balanced on both sides and have just enough extra length to include one more moderate cuffing to keep the shorts just above my knees and presenting as a ‘sharp’ pair of shorts.
I typically wear s sized 34 just about anything and that will fit low on my hips, below my belly button: I bought sized 36 BB’s and they fit at my belly button snuggly but comfortably, I don’t give it a second thought that this is higher than most of my other shorts/trousers.

Bombay bloomers (2019-08-17)
Very nice! One of the best pairs of trousers (?) I've purchased from WPG. Very well made. (My only very minor gripe is the waistband slide buckles are incorrect, but whatevs.) I wear a 32-34 and the size 34 fit perfect.

Steve - US
Good quality (2019-06-24)
These are historically accurate, make great pants for white water rafting or desert hiking, go from buttoned long shorts, to roll up shorter shorts, to loose sailor like pants so you don't get sunburned quickly. I ordered a 38 and after laundering, they fit my 36-inch natural waist perfectly.

Finally Back In Stock! (2019-06-23)
The best repro BomBay Bloomers on the market! They fit well and are made correctly! While they were out of stock I ordered some from a place in India that just weren't right. They fit awfully, especially in the stride. I lucked out and found a used WPG pair on eBay. When I saw they were back in stock I ordered two more pairs. The fit is fabulous, and they are made in the correct style!

Craig - US
Perfect for the tropics (2019-04-20)
I wear these every day to work because they're just so comfortable. They're perfect for Hong Kong too; it's frigid on the metro or bus, then melting hot when you step outside to walk the rest of the way to work.

Nice pants (2019-03-21)
Really unique pants. Only drawback is that the straps that replace a fly button keep slipping; you have to fold it over to make it stay.

Bombay Bloomers (2012-10-29)
I was very pleased with the price, accuracy, construction quality and the shipping time. Buttons are pretty darned closed to the wartime stamped brass British ones, so I do not share the same complaints there. They seem to run on the smaller side so ordering up is a good call. (I can't believe a uniform component this unflattering ever got adopted by the British army, no wonder they're rare!) A good deal for the price, recommended!

Bombay Bloomers (2012-05-15)
Pretty happy with my order. The quality of the garment itself is somewhat lacking, but, given the low price and the fact that it is a reproduction, I'm not surprised. I'm content with the product and deeply impressed with the service of both the seller and the delivery company. Well done - I'm wearing them now.
