I only have 1 pair of guaranteed 40th shorts. so i can not really be sure. if i had a pair of suspect shorts I would look at the elastic all my vintage ones have a herringbone pattern, a bit like the body elastic but smaller (1/8th"). The 40th pair is more like the rifle slings with bands and a bit wider (5mm)

I'm not a huge fan of 40th, but having made in 'Hong Kong' labels when they more than likely made in 'China' is............Lucky it was just the one wave and luckier the 60s nylon footballer was never included in the 40th range.

That wouldn't surprise me Hong Kong has always been more Western, with more middle classes and better standard of living than China. Alot of electrical companies are now Japanese owned, and they too use China to make goods, as does South Korea.  Alot of the 40th range is easy enough to notice and I think a label with '40th made in China' would have been better.
