Mr. (2012-09-09)
Excellent quality. So much better than the ones sold by Banana Republic back in the 80s.

Love my shorts! (2012-09-04)
I owned a pair of these back in the 80s bought at Banana Republic. They wore out and I moved on but I have always wanted another pair. In an idle moment recently I googled "gurkha shorts" and found them on the WPG website. The rest is history: excellent product, attention to detail, and super-efficient delivery from UAE. I'm a 36 waist and that's what I ordered - the fit is fine but the style may not suit every anatomy

Super quality (2012-07-03)
I use a 34 usually, bought a 36, and they fit perfectly. Solid fabric, and overall great!

gurkha shorts (2012-07-02)
They fit to the size, great materials and design. Super fast service for an item coming from Dubai.

Very well done! (2012-06-21)
Positives first:
1 Fit as described! Finally something that does.
2 Great material, extremely well made.
3 Fast shipping! Really Fast!
Only one and it is minor. The buckles are low end, they will suffice for now, but the buckles are exactly what was issued (according to my uncle) and the POSITIVE aspect is that the buckle holders are buttoned so switch out will NOT be a bother.

Great product good price

Gurkha Short (2012-06-19)
After reading other reviews, I ordered my regular size - and interestingly, I found the shorts TOO SMALL (exchanged for 1 size larger and ordered an extra pair to boot !). For the last several years in fashion, men's casual pants have been worn lower and closer to the hip than the waist and so these shorts at size 32 were on my waist and I felt too small. I received the size 34 and using the smallest buckle hole they fit FINE (low waisted, as I wanted - AND remembered my original Banana Republic ones fit). So, very, Very, VERY HAPPY. And yes, the buckles need to be replaced with brass roller buckles (small price to pay for these great shorts).

Very good, needs better buckles (2012-06-18)
Very good pants, a little to long for my taste, but they look great turned up. However, the buckles are not satisfactory at all. They are not robust and not properly filed at the edges.

Wow these shorts are great. I wear them as normal in the heat of the day as normal clothing they complement nautical style t-shirts . For the price.. amazing!

Very well done. (2012-06-17)

Churkas Shorts are great. (2012-04-25)
I'm pleased with the shorts. The shipping was faster than I expected.

A fair price and good service. But I wish there were a back pocket.

gurkha shorts and gurkha trousers (2012-04-03)
quick delivery, I ordered little bit too large size, but my tailor makes it good.
good quality and awsome design!

Perfect. The shorts are super.

White - US
Great repro (2012-03-17)
Exact copy, no rear pockets as original, excellent fit. While some might complain about the length these are supposed to be over the knee, not kilt height. Looking forward to fittingbinto a smaller pair soon!

Sherwood - US
Ghurka shorts (2012-03-06)
Very good. Great color, cut and fabric. Much bigger than anticipated. I will have to order a new pair two sizes smaller

Caspar - US
size is not exagerated do not buy too big (2012-01-25)
quality and make are superb
the size is good as the cut is generous
do not buy them a size above as they are ok.
very nice

Krieps - LU
Great fabric, will takes some customization (2011-08-09)
I love the fabric, but the shorts will require metal eyelets on the straps and better buckles for long-term wear. They look and feel great otherwise.

Evans - US
Great product...made in Pakistan! (2011-08-09)
VERY well-made. I agree that the strap buckles are very flimsy and I will replace them, which is easily done because all you have to do is unbutton a strap. You can find better replacement buckles online for little or nothing. The button fly was a surprise, but the buttons are very sturdy and the button holes look to be very durable. My concern (and warning) is that, every other pair of pants that I own are 34" waist, and so that's the size I ordered, but they are too small. Since I am losing weight anyway, I am keeping them because I like them so much and will be able to wear them in the future. For now, I decided to order the next size larger so I don't have to wait until I can get in the 34's to wear them! Great looking product!

Shipped quickly and quality product (2011-07-26)
Must agree with other regarding sizing since wearing higher than other pants requires the extra inches. The photos don't do the pants justice, nice dark Khaki color and heavy duty material plus deep pockets.

Tatol - US
Amazing shorts (2011-07-08)
I Where them every day, even in winter.. WPG is the only place in the world on line that carries these

Dykes - US
Gurkha Shorts (2011-07-04)
Delivery excellent. The shorts are well-made but the buckles are poor quality and the tang has come out in both of them. Easily replaced though.

Gurhka shorts (2011-06-16)
As always great stuff, I did have some problem though, figuring out how to get the "straps" the right way around my almost, non existing waist but I fixed it! Heavy duty material with wide legs no crotch rot here!!

Thanks /Lars

Ghurka Shorts (2011-05-28)
Very quick delivery and a fine product. Shorts are long but I will hem them as they are not easy to fine. I used to buy war surplus years ago and best I remember, they were quite long, as well.

Cavazos - US
Mr (2011-05-06)
Great shorts with great detailing, a little bit too long for a short guy, but the tailor should take care of it.
THe service and delivery are fantastic.

Yee - US
Great shorts (2011-04-04)
Bought these on a lark with a few other items - and as it turns out - this is my favorite purchase. A bit long - but a little tailoring and I'm stepping out on the town in my new shorts!

Bess - US
great (2011-03-06)
very fast delivery. go along with comment above about the thin man, but.. look at old pics of the desert rats, they did not necessarily had soccerplayers legs. all in all great

UK Gurkha Shorts (2011-01-27)
I was worried that the smallest size wouldn't be small enough for me but the straps allow you to adjust the size to well below 30. Like others have said, the shorts are too long. I think this is probably just a characteristic of the style and a tailor can easily shorten them.

Excellent product and very fast delivery!!! A very serious company. Because of wrong size I try the return policy who was very effective.
I recommand WPG!

Gurkha Shorts (2010-12-22)
The fit was perfect. I prefer my shorts a little loose and the buckles take in the extra slack. Very comfortable and appear to be well made. A little thin on the fabric, however, these are warm weather shorts and I think that is the way it is supposed. Just finding them at this cost and this quality was great. Thank you!

Fine fit and quick delivery out of UAE. Thanks

Thadeus - AU
Gurkha Shorts (2010-10-11)
Unlike most others, I had to exchange for a smaller size, froma 34 to a 32.
The fit in the waist is now correct but as a few others mentioned length is a bit long and will have to be hemmed.
Any chance of getting these as full length trousers? I use to have a pair from Banana Republic.
Original order delivery was VERY fast. I beleive it came from US location. Exchange delivery was quick and that came from thr UAE.

McGuire - US
very nice (2010-10-05)
service: world-class. could not be better. quick shipping to USA from Dubai, of all places.

shorts: quite nice. i am a 33 and bought the 34, they're a little too big, even after washing, so whoever said to buy a size large...i don't agree. the straps, i have to tighten in all the way. so the 34 is like a 34 that expands to maybe a 38 or something. i will probably buy the 32 as well.

Gurka Shorts (2010-09-11)
The shorts were of good quality and I've only asked that they be returned because of the "fit". The fast service was excellent. I will shop here in future.

I Love These Shorts! Promptly delivered, superior in expected quality. Just wish they came in black.

Gurkha shorts (2010-07-20)
Excellent! Just make sure to take accurate measurements of waist. I took a bit too large a measure and so must tailor. MY fault though. Will be buying another pair though this time with correct waist. But yeah, they are beauties! I love WPG!

MacDonald - US
Long on value, short on shipping time. (2010-06-29)
Great Item and shipping was unreal (FAST!!!). Originally ordered larger size and replaced. I have two pair in the 80s (they are now threadbare). I now have three more new pair from you guys. My daughter hates these, which makes me love them even more.
Thanks again

Double Good (2010-06-10)
Arrived is swift time and the quality looks good. I'm not very tall (5'8") and
having them altered for length. What I have found is that the military look
is not only timeless its also functional. Thanks so much

Gurkah (2010-06-09)
Back in the day when you could go to Bannana Republic and find these things...I loved my Gurkahs until I put on an inch in the waist!

Now BR is so yuppie, there is no sign of the old surplus stuff anymore! Glad I found them here and well priced compared to the high end nock offs

Ghurka Shorts (2010-04-15)
Well made for the price,but due to strange buckle placement you need a "batman" to help you dress.Buckles need to be about 3inches closer to navel on each side,and the straps holding the buckles need to re-inforced with stitching to make them usable.Would gladly pay $20-30 more for better tailored shorts.

ghurka shorts (2010-04-07)
I have been looking for heavy cotton ghurkas for years. I wore out and out sized my last pairs. The fabric is a little shinier than I expected but....yippee...they fit great and are exactly what I wanted. Fast shipping. Thank you.

roope - US
Same problem as others concerning straps; probably should have ordered one size larger than my regular size.

Saliwanchik - US
Goorka Shorts (2010-04-03)
Very well made...I would advise one size larger(or carefully measure @ navel) because the adj. straps will custom fit them.And yes,they look best on a lad with some height and manly thighs!
