Swedish M59 field trousers, green, surplus
Just like the superb M39 wool trousers, but made of heavy cotton-rich fabric. Absolutely superb trousers for demanding use, made with love in Sweden during the Cold War period.
The trousers are probably the best part of the M-1959 uniform - made of proper strong fabric, extremely well finished and actually very practical with a load of pockets and a comfortable cut. Other features include a standard button fly, 4 cm belt loops, buttons for braces and reinforcements on the seat and knees.
As these are cotton or polycotton blend, washing should be done in something like 40 degrees Celsius. Hang dry.
The original size system was logical, at least in theory. However, we threw it right out of the window after some measuring. So, first the original Swedish size marked on the trousers, then user's recommended height / maximum waist in centimetres. Look carefully./p>
For the record, here are the measured sizes, first waist, then leg inseam, these are taken dircetly from the trousers with a measuring tape:
- D96: 86/75 cm
- D92: 84/78 cm
- C148: 80/82 cm
- C46: 82/82 cm
- C48: 84/80 cm
- C56: 100/82 cm
- C146: 82/84 cm
- C50: 86/84 cm
- C150: 88/86 cm
- C152: 90/90 cm
- D100: 92/78 cm
- D104: 98/80 cm
Used, but in very good shape. If anything, you might encounter an occasional missing button or something else just as trivial.

Salaa mä tiedän, että varastossa olevat housut ovat pääsääntöisesti ihan mielettömän hyväkuntoisia, moni ihan präniköitä.

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
