Folkwear's Australian Bush outfit (c. 1943-1953) has its origins in British Colonial history, when regiments stationed in tropical or desert climates required functional, lightweight uniforms. Over the years the functional aspects remained; design changes reflected only current fashion trends. Bush Jacket, Trousers, and Walking Shorts are sized for men, women's equivalent sizes are provided for a man-tailored fit.

The hip-length Bush Jacket buttons in front and has a standard pointed collar and lapels. Front darts and shaped side-back seams provide fit, as do back pleats that drop from a gently curved back yoke. Two-piece sleeves are pleated into buttoned cuffs; a buckled belt is worn slightly high-waisted to further enhance the slim tailoring. Safari pockets and deep flap pockets complete the detailing.

Bush Trousers have a buttoned front fly closing and are pleated into a wide waistband, which adjusts with overlapping buckled belt tabs. Deep angled side pockets, button-flap back pockets, and left-side pocket are authentic touches.

Walking Shorts are the Bush Trousers cut and hemmed shorter. Roll them up to wear them as the Aussies do!

A diagram is included for an authentic "Slingeroo" -- the Australian shoulder bag.
