The waistband also has a small stitched on metal loop for securing a watch chain still intact. The reverse of the breeches have a single horizontal slash pocket to the right seat with a single button closure. The reverse of the cuffs each is tied with draw strings. All intact, one of the four strings is worned / cut of and is now about 2-3 cm long.

Overall very good condition with light signs of age and use.
