This is a pair of vintage Military Finnish camouflage pattern combat trousers. These were originally issued in 1962 to the Finnish Army as a reversible pant, one side is camouflage while the reverse is off white to make it adaptable between woodland and snow terrain.
Used and in fair good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration. These pants look to have been adapted as they don't come with the usual drawstring waist. They feature an adjustable button waist front as well as featuring added belt loops and reinforced knee patches and seat. However, we think this only adds to the character of the pants. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.
Please note these were designed to be worn as over trousers so the side entry access slits are not pockets and do not have pocket bags which means you may be able to see what is being worn underneath them.
All our vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.
SIZE: 38W and the actual trouser full waist measurement is 36in, which allows room for a comfortable fit as trousers are now typically worn lower on the waist (please see below for all key measurements to check against a similar garment of your own to ensure a good fit).

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
