Marine Corps Utility Trousers P53

Designed to be worn with the P53 Utility Shirt, the Marine Corps P53 Utility trousers were made from sage green herringbone twill (HBT) cotton.1 They featured two front pockets, a watch pocket and two hip pockets, the left one of which was secured with a single button. Replaced by the P56 sateen utility uniform, the P53 trousers were very rarely worn in Vietnam.
