After almost a century of sporting khaki shorts, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh has finally switched to trousers, in a bid to recruit young people and keep up with the times.

The brown coloured trousers went on sale at the RSS headquarters in Nagpur on Monday.

The Indian Express reported that a pair of trousers for waist size 20-24 is priced at Rs250, with an additional Rs10 more for every additional two inches. A white shirt, canvas belt, black cap, and black shoes are also included in this price, The Hindu reported.

This is the fifth change to the RSS uniform since 1925, when the Hindu nationalist group adopted khaki shorts, leather belts, long black shoes, khaki cap and a stick.
