Default Joe Louis Training Shorts?

Anyone know what to call these shorts Joe Louis is always wearing while training? They don't seem like just normal white shorts to me, I was wondering if there was a specific name for the type of shorts these are.

Yeah lots of old boxers wore them, they were made by boxing companies as well, Joe wore ones made by Benlees and later ones from Everlast, they must have a name to them I just wonder if anyone knows.

Here you can see the Everlast logo.

Those are cotton krunkaloons. Little known fact; they were outlawed in Georgia in 1911 for all black fighters. No one knows why.

Ah, dang, didn't even think about the name. Plus the 'little known fact' made it seem legitimate.

I think they always have that leather belt if that helps.
