Our staff is usually fully clothed in Varusteleka, but there was one constant exception: they wear jeans, and we didn't have them. We fixed this fault by making Good Ol' Proper Jeans.

  • No nonsense classic model
  • High waist, almost straight leg
  • Zipper fly
  • Fabric weight 326 g/m2, 98,7% cotton and 1,3% elastane

In short, these are what jeans are supposed to be: durable, comfortable, clean pants. These fit even if you're not a slim-legged hipster who hangs their pants halfway down, and there definitely is no stone washing or ready-made holes!

Then there's the price too. These are good quality jeans, made in Finland/Estonia. Jeans don't need to cost hundreds of euros.

Jeans cut like they used to be

Right now it seems to be fashionable to sell jeans only to skinny-legged people, with waists so low that people literally show their underwear. We don't like that. Furthermore, we have lots of well-muscled men, overweight men and well muscled overweight men who simply don't fit modern jeans because of their massive thighs and calves. Like the saying goes in Finland, if you can't buy it, you have to make it yourself. Perkele.

These jeans have what is nowadays called high waist, which is not high at all if you're seen military surplus. The waist ends just below navel. The pants are straight, so there's well enough room for thighs and calves without making these baggy. You might be even able to fit boots under them although these aren't really boot cut jeans. Zipper fly and six belt loops - the loops are large enough for wide belts too.

Proper material

If it's not "slim fit", it's made of some pre-washed or pre-torn crap. Not the case with these! These are a rarity, actually looking like a pair of new jeans with the nice dark blue shade. The only treatment these have had is the removal of starch, and that's it. This means they're also pre-shrunk, so you don't have to worry about that either. 98,7% cotton, 1,3% elastane, these are very comfortable and pretty hard wearing. Material weight 11,5 oz. The metal parts on these are nickel-free.

Size info

Sizes in normal jeans sizes - first waist, then leg in inches. If you already know your jeans size, it's very probable the same is the best with these too. If you like to fold the cuff, get a longer size.

The cut on these is just a tad roomy. The manufacturer states that there's probably two different sizes that fit you:

  • Measure your hip circumference from the widest point and look at our size chart.
  • A) Regular fit - pick a size with the same hip circumference as yours.
  • B) Tight fit - pick a size with hip circumference a notch smaller than yours.

Our model normally wears size 36", but here he's sporting a pair of 34" jeans.

Below you can find a size chart with the actual centimetre measurements. These are pre-shrunk so they won't get any tighter.

Excellent jeans. As good as some high street brands (the more standard wrangler and levi are still good imo) but at a fraction of the cost. Importantly, they take real belts.



Well made, and will look good when properly faded through real use.

I wear them all the time for work, I love them.
Only thing I ripped out the zipper at one pair (probably waitet too long to go to the washroom) and was glad it happened at home not somewhere far away from access to new pants ...
(BTW I could fix this very easy: I cut out the zipper parts an used press studs instead, works great and looks decent enough)

Joskus muinoin ostin kalliita merkkifarkkuja ja kiroilin kun ne kuluivat puolessa vuodessa sisäreisistä rikki. Nykyään en.

Miksi helvetissä näissä on vetoketju nappien sijaan. Ja jos kerran vetoketju piti laittaa niin miksi helvetissä tollanen pilipali rimpula joka menee paskaksi kuukauden käytön jälkeen. Hyvienkin farkkujen kanssa on vittumaista kulkea kylillä juluppi auki ja oli sen vetoketjun macgyvermäinen siimalla korjaaminenkin aika kusista näpertelyä, joskin siinä hommassa auttoi muinoin lekasta parilla kolikolla lunasteltu ompelusetti. Jään odottelemaan särmän raakadenim farkkuja, olkoon niissä napit.

Vau! Näissä on tosi tilavat taskut ja kangas vaikuttaa näissä todella laadukkaalta. Vihdoinkin farkut jotka on sopivat, ei liian löysät tai kireät. Suosittelen!

Oon käyttänyt näitä siitä asti, kun eka erä saapui (joulukuu 2015). Ei aiheuta liikkuvuuden kanssa mitään ongelmia. Taskujen sisäkangas saisi olla kestävämpää materiaalia. Puhelin on repinyt etutaskun rikki ja sitä on joutunut paikkailee useammasta kohtaa. Etutaskun muotoilu myös vähän ihmetyttää, miksi sen pohjan pitää olla pyöreä?

Tästäkin huolimatta, tilaan toiset samanlaiset heti, kun oikeaa kokoa on taas saatavilla.
