Wehrmacht M43 wool trousers, repro, used
The mid-war model of the Wehrmacht wool trousers. Used reproduction, these were worn in the newest Tuntematon Sotilas (Unknown Soldier) movie.
Although collectors have named these "M43", this model saw use from 1942 onwards. The low boots came to stay, and it shows in this trouser model, as they are specifically designed to be used with those generally disliked shoes. This shows in the mouth of the legs, which are radically different from the earlier model, with tapered ankles and drawstring to keep the trousers from riding up. Other differences include reinforcing in the seat and loops to accommodate the all-new trouser belt. Of course, buttons for the trouser braces are still there. The pockets have stayed more or less the same. Two side pockets, one rear and one watch pocket.
The material of these trousers is 70% wool and 30% viscose, which is, unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on the viewpoint), probably of better quality than the war-time materials. Colour is the basic Feldgrau.
You can machine wash these in 30 degrees Celsius, with wool cycle. Use of wool care products recommended but not necessary Air dry only, do not use a dryer. Best option is not to wash these at all. If they smell like a dead animal, you have acquired an unprecented level of historical correctness.
The sizes are normal Euro sizes with user's recommended height and waist in the brackets. The sizes run a bit generous, as these are field trousers.
Reproduction by STURM Miltec and these have been used a bit.
This item is from the Tuntematon sotilas movie wardrobe
We have been supplying stuff for the new Tuntematon sotilas (The Unknown Soldier) movie and this item has been in the film wardrobe. We cannot guarantee it was actually used on set or has any screen time. The item usually has various property markings; old Milform wardrobe, our own, and of course various tags from the Tuntematon sotilas movie set, many of these permanent. These are size markings, names etc. All markings are placed in a way they do not show outside when the item is used.
