Särmä Worker Trousers, wool, dark blue
Särmä Worker Trousers in wool! 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.
- 50/30/20 % wool/polyester/acrylic
- Straight leg, comfortable vintage inspired trousers
- Made in Estonia
Old Swedish army work trousers are the best, albeit the colour is ugly and they simply are not available any more. We modeled our worker trousers after them and changed the cotton fabric to wool, because hell yeah. We can't emphasize enough the importance of darted waist - modern undarted waist 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.
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 540g/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 Trousers. For really cold you can even layer them up, wool on the bottom and cotton on top, thus negating the need for any further trouser purchases, hohhohhoo.
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 centimetre 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.

The test run
I was figuring these out with our Särmä design team and this is what we got (my number one colour suggestion, dark bordeaux, didn't fly). After some hot sourcing and ardurous 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 trousers at me and demanded tough use for a year. At first I had my suspicions about the fabric, containing as much artificial fibers as it did. Well I was wrong; these became my number one trousers 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. Howevr 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 trousers which are designed in Finland and manufactured in Estonia of Italian wool fabric for a very reasonable price. Hell yeah!
