Here's a few more shots of the pants, including interior. I'm starting to think they're not military at all. Appreciate all the help so far.

Sorry I never got back to this thread to thank everyone who gave it a shot. I appreciate you all trying to figure it out.

I think they might be post war german miners trousers. I haven't seen them with those two thigh pockets, but if you look at >>those here<<, they are made of the same fabric, a rough satin weave cotton fabric with the inside being fuzzy and they also have the "Zollstocktasche" (folding rule pocket) on the side, pretty typical for workwear in germany since the 50s. If the're not explicitly miners trousers, then I'd still suspect them to be post war workwear, nothing military.

I think you have it! You're right, except for the two thigh pockets it seems to match completely, so if not mining, at least some type of postwar work pants.
Thank you,
Dale

Another idea : CS immediate postwar Army uniform made in german
style postwar .
You can see many trousers in this period made on a british cut with german made
style ?
Sometimes with german cloth left-overs also !

Thanks, Nick. I actually got these in the Czech Republic so you may be correct. I'll try posting them in the international forum and see what i can find out.
Thank you,
Dale
