Before you read further, these are very small, very short shorts. I did at first think they may be a child's size - however they are an extra small pair of adult silky shorts manufactured in the seventies. With the classic adidas trefoil mark on the lower left leg, they are a sportswear classic.
The elasticated waist also has an inner drawstring, when relaxed they measure 9.5" / 24cm across and when stretched they reach 14" / 36cm comfortably so therefore fit approximately up to 28" waist/hip dependent upon where you want them to sit. The side seams have three white stripes stitched on, the middle of which has been tailored around a 1.5" / 4cm split either side of the leg seam. the waistband itself is 1.5" / 4cm deep.
From waistband to lower hem measuring from the side it is 8.5" / 22cm then factor in the split.
Back rise 12" / 30.5cm
Front rise 9" / 23cm
Leg width 12" / 30.5cm
The shorts have a small right back pocket and a cotton inner lining. The condition is generally good, some slight wear between the legs.
