    If there's any person interested of quality wool trousers from Finland, please let me know. These are mostly old new stock directly from a warehouse managed by the Finnish Defence Forces. The fabric is c. 16 oz (85 % wool, 15 % polyamide and c. 1.75 mm thick). There are currently two colours available at the moment, i.e. mid-grey and dark blue. Each trousers have two cargo pockets with two buttons. Sizes available roughly range from European size c. 48 upwards.

    They're meant to be used with wellingtons and/or thigh high leather boots and tucked in. The length of the inner seam of the trousers in size 8/56 is c. 86 cm, c. 84 cm in size 8/54 etc. The smaller number before the waist sizing refers to the Finnish trousers system where 7 = 170 cm, 8 = 180 cm and 9 = 190 cm tall person.

    One can get around 5-10 cm more diameter by taking apart the back seam of the trousers. Furthermore, a few centimeters can be added to the cuffs by taking apart another seam there.

    Martti am I right in saying a size 56 is a 40 inch waist?

    That is what my size table says, but as I wrote, one might enlarge each size about a half a size by opening the seam at the back of the waist.

    They're really great value these surplus wool trousers. Would cost a fortune if they were o the high street, but they always seem to have a massive ar5e. :lmao:

    I'd be interested in a pair 36 x 9. Whatever number that works out at.

    Will take orders for the next two weeks or so for the wool trousers and/or other items I might be able to purchase from the next Finnish Defence Forces' auction I visit. Prices according to the guidelines on my initial message.
