Russian "BTK" desert trousers, surplus
Today the Russian army is all fine and modern, and when you gaze upon these desert clothes, you instantly know why they drink so much. Now available a small batch of current issue Sovi-, agh, we always get it wrong, Russian stuff used today in Syria! Ugly as fuck! Wonderful!
The "BTK" series field trousers clearly have their heritage in the late Soviet era Afganka uniforms, which were actually quite modern. As is, these trousers are pretty practical with a nice amount of pockets and a pretty decent cut. Now depending on the perspective of the viewer, these are either ruined or vastly improved with the pinkish scheme not unlike a pig's skin. No wonder, this is what the Russians call the uniform - 'piggy'.
Sizes in the good old GOST system: first the traditional Russian size numbers, with recommended user measurements in centimeters (height and waist).
Used and rarely washed, just like Russian stuff usually is. Because of the beautiful colour, any stains or dirt show up pretty well. These are however intact. Selling these to the civilian market is of course forbidden, but for the right amount of roubles an enterprising storeman could maybe lose them.

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
