Finnish M65 wool trousers, dark blue, surplus
Finnish navy issue dark blue - almost black - wool trousers with cargo pockets! Get yours now, these proper good stuff made in Finland of real wool. Very limited availability.
- Made of thick proper wool
- Flat cargo pockets
- Made in Finland!
Pretty straightforward cut, with straight leg, neat appearance, belt loops, button fly and sometimes buttons for braces. Some later production trousers might have random little luxuries like a bit of waterproof fabric hidden inside the knees or under foot straps (we won't pick, sorry). The cargo pockets are a rare animal in army issue wool trousers. The army used these both for barracks and field use, paired with either shoes or jackboots, with the trouser leg of course tucked into the boots.
Made from thick wool, very nice quality stuff, costs a fortune these days. Wash in 30 degrees if necessary, air dry only. Usually just brushing the dirt off is enough, these don't even stain easily.
No wonder that these were still issued in 2007 in the northernmost reaches of Finland. This fine tradition came to an end when the stockpiles of larger sizes ran out and the rest was sold off as surplus. For the modern man these present excellent value for money if you're after a pair of old timey, slightly bushcrafty wool trousers that actually don't fall apart in use.
First up is the Finnish army system (height as a vague number and then standard Euro size), in the brackets the recommended users height & waist. Note: The old Finnish trouser sizing runs pretty much a notch smaller than the nominal size (for example, size 52 would normally be made for 92 cm waist, but the Finnish fit is best for 88 cm waist). Look at our numbers!

Used, but in serviceable condition. In the worst case these might have some visible repairs here and there, however in the main picture is a pair of unissued trousers.

The only other wool trousers I own are some M-1951 US Army ones from the Korean War, and while I love those pants, I actually like these better and can tell that their useful temperature range will be much wider. If they ever come back in stock here again, I will likely buy more.

There was a tuck/dart on the rear seam of both pairs that I let out to give me more room.. A great idea for those men whose trousers suddenly “shrink “ once we reach a certain age......
Would recommend these to anyone looking for really good quality wool trousers. Another great Varusteleka find.

- pesin koneessa 40c:n villaohjelmalla, jossa nestemäistä tavallista pesuainetta niukasti, mutta myymäänne villanhoito-ainetta reilummin = ihan kuin värit olisivat kirkastuneet
- myöskin käyttömukavuus parani huomattavasti
- outo juttu kuivauksessa, piti ripustaa lahkeista valumaan/kuivumaan, mutteivat muutaneet muotoa yhtään
. niissä polvivahvikkeissa on vain jotain liimamaista sisäpuolella, harmaissa ei
- tuota ideaa en oikein käsitä
