ITW G-Hook Wave

ITW G-Hook Wave

3.99 USD

A super simple, super reliable option for attaching any 25 mm (1") strap onto PALS-webbing or a webbing loop. The G-Hook is a stamped steel glide buckle with a hook, extremely low profile and silent too! This is the Wave model with the wavey middle bar for added friction and security.

If you're looking for tough jeans without any corners cut, look no further. Despite being starched denim, the Särmä Raw Denim jeans fit you really well once you've broken them in, much like a good pair of leather boots. Soon enough you won't want to take these off!

Raw denim jeans are manufactured from 100 % cotton, which is only dyed and starched. This should please traditionalists, as the material is elastane-free and not pre-washed or -worn either. Our model also has a selvedge, which means the edge of the fabric is self-edged and doesn't fray. Weight 13 ounces / yard, or 441,3 g/m2, mid-weight stuff.

The model is basic with five pockets and a button fly. The cut is a bit narrower than our Särmä Common Jeans, but otherwise similar. We really didn't set out to surprise anyone with these, just meet the demand, which is a tall order these days.

So how come these are so pricey? Raw denim with a selvedge comes 79 cm wide (a hair over 31"), so a double length of fabric is necessary for one pair of jeans, as opposed to trousers made from regular fabrics in the region of 1,5 m (5') widths. Material expenses aside, these are not hastily made in a far-away sweatshop, but with skill and care right across the gulf from our place. The fabric itself is made in Turkey, where stiff traditions die hard.

Sizing

Please pay attention: the size and care go hand in hand. These jeans shrink in the first wash.

  • Pick a size that fits, but not tightly
  • Wear as long as you feel like (this can also be "not at all", if you don't want to create fades)
  • Wash, the jeans will now shrink to fit

If you own Särmä Common Jeans, you can pick the same size. These Raw Denim jeans have a slightly closer fit, but are sized with the same folks in mind.

With a 33" test size we observed a 3 cm reduced waist and 2 cm reduced leg girth. The difference is likely a bit larger or smaller for larger and smaller sizes respectively, but nothing major. Also, denim will stretch to fit again, so if it's a bit tight after washing, just keep going and it'll loosen up a bit. If it wasn't tight before, it'll be fine after washing as well. As you can probably tell at this point, the fabric is unsanforized.

Washing will also reduce length, but this models assumes a cuff, so the amount of folded fabric will just be reduced. There's a couple of inches extra length compared to the designated length: for example a 34" length (86 cm in metric) is actually 36" (92 cm) long when straightened out, before washing. If you want a prominent cuff even after washing, pick a longer size.

Bigger than 42"? Sorry, the fabric is narrow and sets limitations.

Washing

Machine wash separately in 40 °C. Liquid detergent, no bleach or softeners. Hang to dry.

The human mind can't fathom how much the colour runs when these are washed. Wash separately and expect a much more blue appearance after excess colour and starch has washed off. Unless otherwise mentioned, the product pictures feature jeans before washing.

Varusteleka Särmä

Särmä is our own brand of clothing and equipment. When you buy Särmä you get purpose built stuff at a decent price, something that will fill it's intended role well and not cost you an arm and a leg!

Made in EU

These are Fenno-Estonian work as follows: our subcontractor is a Finnish company, MASI - the paperwork is done here, the fabrics come from Europe and the sewing work is made just over the gulf in Estonia. These are entirely European-made, you'll be hard-pressed to find better workmanship.

Järkyttävän hyvän tuntuiset farkut näin lyhyellä käytöllä. Riittävän syvät taskut ettei kamat putoa taskuista. Vielä kun saisi tämän tuntuman pysymään ensimmäisen pesun jälkeen niin ettei pehmene liikaa tärkin poistuessa housuista. Muokkaan arvostelua kunhan housut on pesty, joskus kuukauden päästä.

Tosiaan nykäsmäiset pöksyt, mutta ei lainkaan typerän näköisesti. Mukavan jämäkät ja varmasti kestävät, nämä jalassa voisi lähteä tutkailemaan ranchin tiluksia ponin selästä, kalkkarokärmeksen hammas taittuisi housun lahkeeseen.

Mainospuheiden ja hehkutuksen perusteella odotin ehkä vähän liikoja.. Loppupeleissä aika perus kangasta, ei mitenkään paksumpaa (väriä kyllä lähtee ja kulutukset saa näkymään). Ei pysy pystyssä pelkiltään ja "peltimäinen" on hieman liiottelua.
Kuitenkin jälleen hyvät farkut ja tulee pysymään vaatekaapin särmä-collectionissa, ei vain vastannut odotuksia.

Ehkä vielä joskus särmän über raw denimit. Sitä päivää odotellessa.

Loistavat ja mukavat farkut! Toimin ohjeiden mukaan ja alkukäytin pari viikkoa ennen ensimmäistä pesua. Pesun jälkeen farkut muokkaituivat juuri siihen kokoon ja istuvuuteen mitä luvattiinkin, lopputuloksena erinomaisen istuvat (ei lökötä) mutta myös mukavat housut. Hyväksihän tämän mallin tekee nimenomaan nykyhousumalleista poiketen korkeampi vyötäröleikkaus jolloin liikkuminen ja istuminen on luonnollista ja mukavaa ilman että selkä tai vatsa jää paljaaksi ja miehinen anatomia puserruksiin. Kangaskin tuntuu kestävältä.
Suosittelen mitä lämpimimmin.

Fabric is stiff as expected, although much thinner than I imagined, given raw denim's supposed sturdiness. Not sure what to make of that.

I am not a skinny hipster type, but these jeans are enormously baggy, and obviously designed for very fat people. They don't look anything at all like the model--I thought Europeans were supposes to be skinny!. For $120 plus shipping I hoped to get something that at least *kind of* fit, instead of an expensive pair of 'dad jeans', but am completely screwed. VARUSTELEKA products are effectively non-returnable--these jeans in particular have to be washed by the buyer to assess fit properly, and buyer-pays-return-shipping means you get punished for even attempting an exchange.

If you're very large and into expensive, fashion-forward workwear, this might be for you--the look and feel of the fabric seems good. Otherwise stay away.

Mukavat ja laadukkaat farkut.

Nykyisiin miesten farkkujen matalaan vyötäröön täysin kyllästyneenä on mahtava tunne käyttää housuja joissa ei pylly vilku jo pelkästä kyyristymisen ajattelusta. Farkut istuvat hyvin eivätkä purista tärkeiltä alueilta. Malli omaan mieleen parempi kuin kansan farkuissa (hitusen kapeammat lahkeet).

Kangas on paksua ja uskon että nämä kestävät minulla käytössä useamman vuoden. Alussa hieman jäykähköt, mutta pehmenevät käytössä nopeasti. Iso kiitos nappisepaluksesta. Vetoketju ei vaan kuulu farkkuihin.

Käytin näitä n. 4kk ennen ensimmäistä pesua. Ennen pesua olivat hieman lököttävät ja juuri tästä syystä jouduin nämä pesemään ennen 6kk maagista rajaa. Pesun jälkeen farkut muuttuivat hyvin istuviksi.

Kulutuksia muodostui kuukausien aikaan hieman, enimmäkseen taskujen kohdalle missä tavarat on. Ei mitään mahdottomia "trendikulutuksia" jos joku pelkää että pesemättöminä nämä muuttuisivat heti kivipestyjen näköisiksi. Riippuu varmaan paljon siitä mitä tekee farkut jalassa. Itselläni nämä eivät ole kävelyä ja istumista rankempaa aktiviteettia vielä nähneet.

En keksi miinuksia. Hyvää työtä. Suosittelen

Tulee ihan nuoruus mieleen, jytäkät farkut. Panin pesuun heti, koska en halua mitään "rendivillityksiä" vaan tavalliset housut ilman elastaania, joka ilmeisesti muun muoviroskan kanssa kuuluu Saatana (tm) -tuoteperheeseen. #Mikromuovi, #Kierrätyskelvoton


Kansan Farkut ovat osoittatuneet sen verran kestäviksi, että näillä pääsee nelikymppinen mies varmaan hautaan asti.
