Okay, I'm crap with guesstimating these sizes. What size would I need if I'm 34" waist?

34" = 86 cm. Size 50 would be 88 cm, but you probably would like to get size 52 (92 cm) if you don't want to open the back seam.
Thanks Martti. Can I order a pair of trousers then, size 52 please. Do you want a PM to confirm?

Will the boots be new Martti ?
As said, the boots are NOS or new-old stock. They were manufactured in the 1970s and 1980s and put away into warehouses. I have handled a few dozen of them and the leather is in fine condition (like seen on the film).

Any idea of the cost ?
Usually they will charge around 30-40 € per pair. For another 5-10 € you can usually buy spare NOKIA rubber outsoles and resole the boots when the original outsoles fail.

Do you ever see any M39 Wool field caps on sale or are they well gone ?
There are some m/36 field caps still available in sizes c. 54-60, most of which are made in the 1980s from wool-polyester fabric. However, previously I have managed to find a few of the 1960s style m/36 caps made from thicker wool fabric in sizes c. 56-58. The 1980s style caps cost around 5-10 € if my memory serves me correctly.

Hey chaps. Just received my parcel, and very pleased with it all. Wool trousers, brand new are awesome, fit perfect. Boots are brand new fit perfect with room either way for sock adjustment. Very happy chappy. Martti rocks. :)

Hi Martti,
I have seen Mors' review and would be interested in a pair of size 52 (short leg) if possible and you wouldn't mind, how do you want to sort out the details?
