BRIEF HISTORY OF THE GURKHA PANT
In short, Nepalese Gurkha soldiers were recruited by the British army after a display of great strength and skill during battle in 1814. Their army was 6 times smaller than the British, but they held out much longer than anticipated due to their stamina and knowledge of the terrain. The British struggled as they were not used to the heat and unfamiliar territories, and as a result their weight fluctuated. The garment which became known as the "Gurkha pant" had an adjustable belted waist which allowed the trouser to be cinched and released as required, whilst maintaining a smart military uniform.
