Description
Bondage trousers made in blue, yellow, red, black and green tartan wool. The straight-legged pants are constructed with a fly zipper that extends from the front waistband, through the crotch, to the back waistband. There is a zipper at the back of each trouser leg. Below the knee is a 'bondage' strap attached to the inner seam of each leg, and adjusted with two buckles. A black belt is at the waist with a purple towelling loincloth attached by 'D' latches at the front.
