    My trousers arrived today.
    They're even better value if you order more than one pair.
    The material is soft & thick. Pockets provide great utility (see the photo in post #1)
    The cut & fit has an air of 'old-fashioned tailored' & they wouldn't look out of place as a 'dress' item.

    Martti was a pleasure to deal with, dispatch was swift & delivery quick.

    Recommended.

    ps I got size 8/52
    I'll take an inch of the leg length for my inside legs of 32"
    There's an extra inch or so in the waist for my 33" circumference, but I'll leave that in case of christmas feasting, otherwise a belt is all that's needed.

    As long as there is interest to participate in a group buy and these trousers are available in the depots, my offer to help buying these trousers will stand.

    The largest sizes I have occasionally seen are 58 and 60 EU. These also have around 5-10 cm more fabric to the waist if you take the seam apart and resew it.

    They have been selling these new-old stock trousers for 5 € (c. £4) for years now, so they might run out of them any day now. Hopefully the stocks will last at least a year or two more.

    8/58 = c. 104 cm (41 in) waist, for c. 180 cm (6 ft) tall person.
    8/60 = c. 108 cm (42.5 in) waist, for c. 180 cm (6 ft) tall person.

    I would be interested in one or two pairs of 8/60s if you can still get them.
