Reproduction of the field grey German uniform trousers issued to the Army, Waffen-SS and Luftwaffe ground units. In late 1942 or early 1943, these trousers began to replace the M37 trousers used previously. They incorporated a number of improvements learned from 3 years of combat experience. The most notable changes from the earlier trousers were tapered ankles to fit the leggings better, reinforced seat for improved durability, and belt loops. (In order to lower one's trousers while wearing suspenders requires removing the equipment and the coat: This was found to be rather dangerous in certain situations.) Our reproductions duplicate the original garment to the last detail. The watch pocket, corded keyhole buttonholes, side-adjustment tapes and twill tape stirrups are all reproduced.
