Swedish wool trousers, surplus
Old Swedish issue wool trousers, some from the World War 2 era. They don't make them like these anymore!
Like so many other pants of their time, the Swedish wool trousers feature a high waist, button fly and buttons for braces. 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.
Wool still works well on chilly weather and winter - it keeps you warm even when wet, but doesn't get soaked without a good effort. It also resists soiling quite well.
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.
In used, but OK serviceable condition.

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.
