Finnish M/36 diagonal wool trousers, with piping, surplus
Old Finnish army diagonal weave wool trousers, these are just like the wartime M/36 trousers but they have piping of various colour on the side. Carefully remove the piping and these are like pretty much like the stuff our grandparents fought the war in.
The piping colour and style varies. Often the center stripe is sewn between the fabric, so it'll require some skill to remove neatly. Otherwise these are the bee's knees with a proper hight waist, suspender buttons and waist adjustment and what all, and THAT FABRIC. It's something you just don't see any more - very high quality, thick diagonal wool. They used to make warstuff out of this kind of luxury fabric, jesus christ. Don't put these into a washing mahine, brush dirt off and spot wash if necessary.
Sizes simply by the measured waist and leg inseam of the trousers. Measure your waist at the navel and compare. As said, these have adjustment tabs on the waist, so the size can be tightened a bit from the given measurement.
Priced according to sizes - larger ones are rare, so they cost more. All are pretty affordable for what they are, and we haven't seen too many of these in the market anyway.
Old but at least not worn in the field. While they are pretty neat and clean, there might be a few moth nips here and there. Being made in the 50's and 60's is bound to leave a mark or two...
