Viking Pants / Rus Pants Olaf, brown
Viking-style trousers are certainly one of the most important pieces of clothing for an authentic portrayal of a Viking or a Slav.
The pants Olaf
were inspired by the Viking Rus'
(ca. 8th to 11th c.). It is believed that the Rus' people were originally Scandinavians, more precisely
Swedish Vikings, who crossed the Baltic Sea and raided their way through Eastern Europe, where they eventually established trading settlements and gradually
assimilated with the local, mostly Slavic population.
Pictorial evidence of the existence of loose-fitted Viking trousers can be found for example on some of the pictures stones of Gotland (Broa, 8th c.).
Our Rus' trousers are made of sturdy cotton fabric (twill weave) and are very comfortable to wear. While the top part boasts a quite voluminous cut, the legs are
gathered below the knee and taper to the ankle. Additional winningas
or legs wraps (available separately in our shop) can be wound over the trousers
around the tight-fitting calf part. The wide waistband is equipped with an individually adjustable drawstring for a perfect fit. Side pockets and small side slits on
the leg hems allow for even more freedom of movement.

How to find the right size:
To take your body measurements correctly in order to determine your clothing size, please always wrap the measuring tape horizontally around your body at the
fullest part. For trousers, sizes are based on your hip circumference.
If you happen to fall between two sizes, we recommend that you go up a size.
Ease is included in the pattern and reflected in the finished measurements.
