Old Swedish issue wool trousers, some from the World War 2 era. They don't make them like these anymore and this is no joke!

Finding a good pair of "skiing trousers" is nigh impossible. Well, now you don't have to look any further! The Swedish wool trousers feature a high waist, action cut, button fly, and buttons for braces. The leg cuffs have an adjustment system of some kind. In addition, these have belt loops. What's even better, the Swedes had the foresight to add cargo pockets to the sides, of course along with the normal slash pockets. The cargo pockets are a modification made after the WW2 to all of the trousers in the inventory and the Swedish army did such a proper job that you really cannot find a pair without them. We've seen maybe two specimens total. You can carefully cut them off if required.

Wool still works well in chilly weather and winter - it keeps you relatively warm even when wet, but doesn't get soaked without a good effort. It also resists soiling quite well. Of course it's not windproof, but the flipside is the good breathability. For windproofing needs you can wear some form of overpants. All in all, if you would require do-it-all trousers for the winter season, with these you can't go wrong!

Material and care

These are made of real and proper 100 % wool, the kind you will not find anywhere anymore, because it's so damn expensive to make. Wool is delicate when it comes to washing; machine wash in either cold water or 30 degrees Celsius with wool cycle. Hang dry. Usually you don't even need to wash these, just air them out overnight and give them some brushing. Wash is usually needed only if the trousers get really soiled!

Size information

First, the Swedish size marked on the trousers, then the measured waist circumference and leg inseam. These might vary just slightly from pair to pair, usually upwards if something.

Condition

In used, but OK serviceable condition. Some of these are made during WW2 era, some after the war. There are two distinct models with the main difference being the lack of front pocket flaps on the older model, while the the newer one has them. We won't pick.

Absolutely immense, fit as described, cuff of the leg is a little different, with no leather at all but some loops for a strap, with little metal hooks on the inside. Seemingly completely unused and dated 1941.

Aivan käsittämätöntä, että saa näin hyvät housut pilkkahintaan. Omalle kohdalle sattui täysin käyttämättömät housu. Piti vain öljytä nahkaremmit, jotka olivat ajansaatossa kuivahtaneet. Olin varautunut, että housut on sellaista karhunkieli sarkaa, mutta olikin hemmetin pehmosta. Pystyy hyvin vetämään jalkaan ilman pitkiä kalsonkeja.

Very nice quality product but the sizing was way off. Even someone 3 sizes smaller than me could not close them.

Ordered two different sizes as wasn't sure what would fit my waist best, one pair was a perfect fit and still had the factory manufacturing tags on so had never been used.
The other pair look to have been hardly used but are only just a little bit too big in the waist, although could fit fine with some braces fitted or brought in by a tailor other than that fitted fine everywhere else.

Both pairs were dated 1940's as well and very well made, if I ever wear these out I would definitely consider buying more in the future provided I could find my size and the were as reasonably priced as they are here.

These are a bit wide in the legs but they were perfect length and fit perfectly around my waist!

I made a gamble by buying a waist size of 78, while I normally wear 80. They are *slightly* tight, but perfectly fine if I don't tuck in my sweater. The leather straps on the ankles are uncomfortable if tucked into a boot, but I suppose they are intended to be worn over anyways. Decent pockets, quite warm, and I now finally have a (almost) complete 40s Swedish Army uniform. Now just to find those damn shoes...

Nice pair of m39/58 trousers. I have a feeling these pants just sat in a warehouse after having the hip pockets sewn on, pants have little, if any, wear to em.

Couldn't be happier with these pants ! Rugged, tough yet warm and comfortable. It's amazing to think that these date from the 40's ! They look basically brand new and except for that nice storage smell, there's nothing wrong with them. I fitted them with a nice pair of british braces and now I am warm when I go to work outside ! Thanks Varusteleka !
