BW neck tie, surplus

The problem with civilian neck ties is that they just fall apart in real rough use. Military neck ties are made to withstand combat. And if you plan on going to a fight without a tie, maybe you're not a real gentleman!

Särmä Worker Trousers, brown

78.99 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.

First we were like "what, you don't get a decent folding knife for that price", but after handling the first batch minds were changed: fits the hand, works and cuts. Try it out yourself!

A traditional Henley style shirt, but made properly - these have only real, functional features and are woven from Merino wool. Works equally well in everyday use and outdoor activities, both by function and looks, both as an undershirt or as an additional warm layer. What's not to love here?

Tämmöinen terästarjotin tekee lautasista turhia, sillä näppärän lokeroinnin ansiosta eri ruokalajit pysyvät siististi omissa oloissaan sotkeutumatta keskenään eikä pestävääkään tule tavallaan yhtään niin paljon. Olettaen että ruoka lämmitetään jossain muussa astiassa, on tämä voittajan ratkaisu!

Särmä viscose hoodie, black

59.99 USD

We already made a superior hoodie out of Merino wool, but that stuff is expensive. For the plebs is available this cheaper option which retains the superb cut and features and while not as fancy as the woollen one, still works like that to a degree - at less than half the price! If you just need a damn well designed hoodie for casual use, this is the ticket.

Särmä Worker Flat Cap, brown

34.99 USD

A basic flat cap, and that's what's so nice about these; timeless colour and form, no flashy logos or ugly details. It's a hat you could wear with anything. At the same time this cap will demilitarize anything else you are wearing. Just add braces to your trousers and you look all ready for a proper bar fight!

Soviet Ready for Labour and Defence of the USSR badge "GTO", surplus

Soviet Ready for Labour and Defence of the USSR badge "GTO", surplus

2.99 USD

"Ready for Labour and Defence of the USSR", abbreviated GTO, was an All-Union physical culture training program in the Soviet Union. Unlike the Unified Sports classification system, the GTO didn't concern athletes, but all subjects of the state from toddlers to grandparents.

Like a modern men's blazer, but even more like an early 20th century worker's jacket, which it sort of is! This jacket is very likely vintage prison wear, definitely Swedish. Garments like this just look better with use and wear. These are in excellent shape, and with a surprisingly good size selection too.

Unlined, open-collar design with three open pockets. Not at all formal looking. The fabric looks very peculiar, it changes colour when looked from a different angle. That's because the threads used in the weave are of different colours. Pair it with rusty red and brownish coloured stuff and it works like a charm. Wash in 40 degrees Celsius, about.

Size info

Sizes in standard EU sizes or straight-up centimetres because different size marking standards, but please pick the jacket by our recommended user's measurements (height & chest) seen in the brackets; our measurements are more accurate than the actual fit by the official size numbers! For example, normally in the Swedish system size 96 would be a long 48, but these are quite erratic.

Being prisoner issue, maybe even made by prisoners, possibly even inspected by prisoners, these are not the fanciest quality when it comes to details such as this.

Our model is size 175/96 cm and wears size 52 jacket in the pictures.

Condition

In excellent condition, most aren't even used. These do have a musty warehouse odour to them. This will fade away in use. These are probably made in the mid 1900's, so what can you expect!

Tää on THE Spurgutakki: kumpaankin sivun taskuun menee tollainen Markiisipullo tai mitä ikinä juokaan ja kangas kestää kaikki katuojissa pyörimiset. Miinusta tästä ei oikeastaan edes hakemalla löydy. Istuu kuin hanska ja lompakkokaan ei paljoa tästä ostoksesta irvistänyt.

As a 160cm stick thin midget with short arms, the 44 size fits like a tailored blazer, but just generous enough to feel comfortable with a fleece or sweater underneath, with the sleeves slightly long. That being said, the sleeves can easily be shortened with some needlework as there is no lining. Who'd guess that prisonwear could have such aesthetic?

The rusty brown/grey/green colour blend is a nice change from the olive drab jackets that I usually wear, and the material feels like a hardwearing but light and thin denim.

Lastly, mine arrived in pristine condition, and the build quality is superb. Very happy with the product and service from Varusteleka.

The is a beautiful jacket; The fabric is a shot-weave cotton twill, with the warps a sort of pale red-grey-brown fleck, and the wefts a dark bottle green, which basically means that when the fabric creases or folds, it shimmers from a sort of red-grey, to olive green and back. It is really, really strange and I'd bet money that this particular fabric wasn't woven for anything else.

Despite being ostensibly a shabby bit of outerwear for prisoners, it's got a lovely neat finish to it; All the seams are pressed and felled (There's no raw edges of fabric showing) and other than the buttonholes being a little rough (They're cut open, but not frayed back; They will fray into a smoother shape over time though) it's a very well finished garment. It has a Fristads' workwear label in it, which I suspect could be used to date it exactly (Fristads was founded in 1925)


The sizing is true; I bought the same size as I would wear in any jacket, and other than the arms being slightly over-long, it fits like a glove. The arms are straight seamed and have a simple hem rather than a cuff, so they could be turned up easily anyway (and I probably will do so). Better that the arms are over-long than over-short.

Aika puli takki kyllä. Haisi tosi pahalle, mutta pesun ja monen päivän tuuletuksen jälkeen lemu alkaa jo olla OK.
Hieman ompeluvirheitä tästä löytyi, mutta kyllä se vangille kelpaa.
Valitettavasti takki ei istunut tarpeeksi hyvin päälleni, että kehtaisin käyttää kylillä.
