Uncle Sam's Motor Cycle Dispatch Rider pants are from Italy. Take the feel of popular literature in this motorcycle uniform with pants held by suspenders, buttons on the side of the pant to close, and two large cargo pockets 10" long. At the calf of the pant, riders will style with straps. It is a safetly method to keep pants tight to the leg along with stirups for boots. . The accessories to accent the Ernesto "Che" Guevara look as seen in his memoire film, Motorcycle Diaries. The accessorcies would be a flight jacket, goggles, or aviator shades. More stories and books like THREE DAY ROAD by Joseph Boyden have been written about the dangerous job of dispatching. The fashion has become famous. Set in the bush country of Canada and the battlefields of Europe, Three Day Road takes readers deep into the horrors—physical, emotional and spiritual—of World War I. Quoted in the book, "Her father, Guy, had been a motorcycle dispatch rider in World War I, had had the dubious distinction of being wounded on November 11, 1918, the last day of the war.

Comments about Motorcycle Dispatch Rider:

I was very excited to get these and tried them on as soon as they arrived.... Unfortunately Italian men in that time period were mysteriously thin and short legged. The wast fit fine as did the hips and thighs but everything below the knee was horrid. I could barely get my legs into them unbuttoned and the were about 5 inches too short. I would have to wait for my legs to atrophy and cut my feet off above the ankle for them to fit. The material was fantastic and very comfortable.... Maybe I'll just cut the legs off and have some weird looking lederhosen....

I bought these pants for an early airman costume. Pants are a great period piece, very cool looking.

Comments about Motorcycle Dispatch Rider:

I purchased these pants with much anticipation and high hopes for rounding out my steampunk wardrobe.

They fit great around the waist, however, the fit around the calves is extremely tight and uncomfortable. My wife has been able to move the leg buttons out somewhat and expand the leg, but it is still too tight. We are now thinking of adding a strip of cloth or leather on the outside seam to widen the legs a bit more.

Great style, but unfortunate tailoring in the legs. I recommend these pants, but only if you understand the fit issues and either have matchstick legs or can tailor them for comfort.
