Description

Luftwaffe paratrooper's jumping trousers. A late war pair made with the typical brownish cloth as used for M44 tunics and trousers. Interestingly, this pair with constructed with all buttons sewn on instead of the press buttons usually used for Fallschirmjäger trousers.

Typical silk lining with four size stamps. Pocket bags constructed from linen. All buttons complete. All leg straps complete and in full length. 

Please note that the knife pocket / pocket flap was removed and the seam was closed. The press pockets were removed. You can stil see traces. We marked the 2 button holes on the pictures.

Slightly worn condition. Some minor moth damage.

Waist: 80cm. Length: 108cm.

Note: According to the consignor, these trousers were dyed after the war and the color was decolorized by him. After checking carefully we can't find any bit of color left. The cloth just came out again perfectly!
