Särmä Worker Pants in wool! Classic design from back when men's clothing was both practical and good looking. The best thing about these is the darts in the back and pleats in front. These give more room around the hip area, so the pants do not crush your balls as all modern trousers do.

  • 50/30/20% wool/polyester/acrylic
  • Straight leg, comfortable vintage-inspired pants
  • Made in Estonia

Old Swedish army work pants are the best, albeit the color is ugly and they simply are not available anymore. We modeled our worker pants after them and changed the cotton fabric to wool because hell yeah. The color is dark blue.

We can't emphasize enough the importance of darted waist - modern dartles waists must be the women's revenge from years of oppression, or simply a cost-saving measure. With these pants, your dingly parts are free from oppression no matter what your posture is. Added plus is that your legs have complete freedom of movement and your pocket contents are actually accessible. These are so comfortable you'd think you're wearing sweatpants. Of course, when you think about it, the extra space provided to the hip area by the darted waist should be fine for the ladies too - it's a deal where everyone wins!

These have a cotton reinforcement inside the waistband, as well as reinforced cuffs.

The belt loops are suitable for up to 50 mm (2") belts, but for the practical working man, we have included buttons for attaching proper braces. Wear them up when working: hanging braces are a signal that you are off duty. The fly is also buttoned.

Materials

The suitable fabric was hunted down from Italy: 50% wool because wool is best, 30% polyester for strength, and 20% acrylic came in the side. Fabric weight 540 g/m2, comparable to old-timey civilian trousers and not overly bulky. From the outside, it's "unbrushed" because we wanted the slightly rough, matte look for these. On the downside, it collects a lot of hair.

These are definitely at their element during the chillier time of the year, so during summer, you should wear something else, like the cotton version of the Worker Pants. For really cold you can even layer them up, wool on the bottom and cotton on top, thus negating the need for any further pant purchases, hohhohhoo.

Sizing

If you know how to buy jeans, you'll do fine: just the waist and inseam in inches. Note that you can pick a precise waist: the thighs and ass won't be in your way. If you fall between two sizes, pick the smaller one. Lengthwise these are easy to shorten if necessary, or just turn the cuffs.

Below you can find a size chart with the actual centimeter measurements. These are pre-shrunk so they won't get any tighter; if anything, the small elastane content will forgive a bit and just finish the fit.

Made in Estonia, proper stuff.

These are designed in Finland and manufactured in Estonia.

The test run

I was figuring these out with our Särmä design team and this is what we got (my number one color suggestion, dark Bordeaux, didn't fly). After some hot sourcing and arduous thinking our R&D team found a suitably priced yet nice quality fabric and what do you know, one day we received the first factory samples.

The team threw the sample pants at me and demanded tough use for a year. At first, I had my suspicions about the fabric, containing as many artificial fibers as it did. Well, I was wrong; these became my number one pants for the fall, winter, and spring and I hated having to pack them in the closet for summer. They saw washing, hiking, biking, general walking 'round the town and even work use. The fabric does pile up just a bit from the most wear-prone spots. Fortunately, these are easily removed with a wool comb and the piling is very mild. However these do suck in every hair they come in contact with so they should be aired out once a day after use - you should actually make this a standard procedure with each garment you use daily to keep them fresh. Other than that, oh my God these are great.

So, this is how we got a pair of pants which are designed in Finland and manufactured in Estonia of Italian wool fabric for a very reasonable price. Hell yeah!

Mainiot housut! Ja mukavat! Mutta! Kyllä tämän hintaisissa ja -laatuisissa housuissa kuuluisi olla takasaumassa vähän ylimääräistä kangasta...JOS vaikka sattuisi vyötäröltä vähän kasvamaan myöhemmin. Ja vyötäröltä napakat nimenomaan kannattaa ottaa, jotta muu istuvuus olisi tarkoituksenmukainen. Vielä jäi seuraavallekin iterointikierrokselle vähän kehitettävää.

EDIT 280220:
Vedätkö pitkät kalsarit talvella slimmien toimistohousujen alle, ihan vaan työmatkaa varten? Ihan turhaa. Nämä kun vetää housujen PÄÄLLE niin on paljon parempi vaihtoehto.

Täsmälleen sitä mitä toivoin, ihan kuin puuvillaisetkin, paitsi että napit ovat merkittävä parannus. Viininpunaisetkin ostan jos teette.

Great, they have a very nice 1930's ample cut. I wear them for folk dancing, and look like a hipster when I put the braces, but it's so comfy ! An exceptionnal product.

Yes yes yes. Comfortable and very sharp-looking when worn with braces. I have a 96.5cm waist, and while the recommendation was to size down if between two sizes, I do need a bit of space for my bum and thighs, so I took the 38/32. They fit very well as I prefer a more relaxed fit in pants. The Helsingin Olkain braces are a match made in heaven for these, supremely comfortable and not half-bad looking.

The fabric is thick and overall quality is high. Strong stitching that should last decades, plus the buttons for braces have better stitching than on the cotton worker trousers.

Hieman huonosti istuviin farkkuihin tottuneena voin vilpittömästi sanoa, että nämä ovat valehtelematta parhaat housut, mitkä omistan. Istuu vyötäröltä juuri sopivasti. Vyötärö on myös sopivan korkealla ja laskosten ansiosta housut ovat sen verran väljät, että housujen kanssa myös löhöilee mielellään ilman, että ne hiertävät mistään. Enää ei tarvitse kotiin tultaessa vaihtaa heti olohousuja jalkaan. Housut ovat ainakin näin pikkupakkasilla juuri sen verran lämpimät, että pitkiä kalsareita ei tarvitse. Saa nähdä, miten näiden kanssa tarkenee sitten kun on ihan kunnolla pakkasta.

Oman kotini valaistuksessa housut näyttävät lähes mustilta, vaikka ovatkin väriltään tummansiniset. Ei sillä, että asialla olisi mitään väliä. Mustat tai siniset, kummatkin kelpaavat minulle.

These pants are awesome. The guy is so far from the hipster slim fit that we men have been plagued with for the past few years. Please make them in more colors (maybe grey or brown herringbone). I am between sizes , and went up, which is what is fat Americans always do. I am supremely satisfied. One pleat in the front makes a lot of difference when you sit down. Bravo...

Great pair of pants. I use them on outdoor trips when it's not too hot, and they're comfy, robust, warm... All you can ask from outdoor gear. And they look sharp.

Why not make a workwear jacket with the same fabric ? It would look great and make a lot of sense for mid-season work ! Check this : http://lavieenbleudetravail.free.fr/image/coltinmollaf48.jpg
