Finnish army issue gray wool trousers with cargo pockets! Get yours now, these proper good stuff made in Finland of real wool. These are getting a bit rare.
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. On some specimens the tags say the material consists of "at least 85 % wool". 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.
