1960s, Maybe even early 50s, pair of prisoner sweatpants. These are stenciled with CHS for correctional health services, and were likely given to prison inmates who were unwell and staying in the nurse/hospital area of the prison while ill. These are a great piece for wearing or display. Distressing and wear throughout with marks and discoloration. Only one elasticated cuff is till stretchy and elastic - the right leg. The other leg and the waist are no longer stretchy and don’t really expand and contract. The elastic in the right leg could be removed to match and make these slouchy sweat trousers. Waistband has no elastic quality but does have the original drawstring for adjustability. Drawstring likely needs to be utilized to wear comfortably. One repair on knee.
Measures like a 30/31
Waist: 16" across when laid flat, but adjustable with drawstring. Could work for 29/30 through 33.
Leg Opening: 8.5”
