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.

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. As the blue model had a good welcome, here's a pair in classic black and with button fly instead of a zipper!

Särmä Worker Trousers, brown

Särmä Worker Trousers, brown

72.99 USD

Classic design back when men's clothing was both practical and good looking. The best thing about these are the darts in the back and pleats in front. These give more room around the hip area, so the trousers do not crush your balls like all modern trousers do.

Every man has to own at least one flannel check shirt. These really come to their element just about anywhere outside the office environment. Remember: if your flannel shirt does not have the classic check pattern, it's not proper and should be abandoned.

Särmä ankle boots

Särmä ankle boots

117.99 USD

Bullshit free ankle boots made by the Estonian Foxberg to our specs. Apart from the sole these are much like the US Army garrison boots from the Second World War. Very nice quality, these aren't just for show, they are good enough for real use.

Särmä leather belt, 40 mm

Särmä leather belt, 40 mm

22.99 USD

Proper no-nonsense leather belts are increasingly difficult to find these days, well at least until we started making these! This here is just that, a proper no-nonsense leather trouser belt, strong leather with a classical single prong brass buckle.

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 elasthane-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.
