An original pair of West German Bundesgrenzschutz camouflage trousers dating from the 1950s.
In the post-war period the new West German Bundeswehr Army introduced this pattern of camouflage trousers which was based on those used during the Second World War. Due to its similarity to the WW2 issue items, they proved unpopular and were discontinued in the late 1950s, making them rare to find today. The camouflage pattern is Sumpfmuster , Marsh Camo, Tan and Water pattern camouflage.
The trousers feature a button fly, flapped pockets to the hips and cargo pockets to the outside of each leg. Reinforcing patches are fitted to each knee and a separate waistband which features belt loops. The waist is also adjustable via tabs which are connected with a piece of elastic. The tabs have been stitched in place although these could be unpicked to let the waist out if so desired. There are also two rear pockets which both feature flaps.
The trousers will suit around a 32" waist and when laid flat they measure -
Waist - 16 1/4"
Rise - 13"
Rear rise - 17"
Inside leg - 19 1/2"
Outside leg - 42"
Cuff - 9"
The trousers are in good condition with signs of wear and use. There are some small holes and a small L-shaped tear to the bottom of one of the trouser legs which are illustrated. Please study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that these are a pre-worn pair of combat trousers which may have small issues commensurate with age.
A great looking pair of camouflage trousers which would make a great addition to any wardrobe or collection!
