Olaf Viking Pants, black
Description of the Product
These knickerbocker-style pants are narrow and tight-fitting below your knee and wide and airy upwards from the knee. This allows a unique look with free leg movement. This style pants are normally wrapped with leg bindings or tucked inside high boots below the knee and work especially well with long riding boots. Even though we named these pants as viking pants these suit well to many different eras to many different characters.
The leg bindings/wrappings kept the trousers clean, dry and in good shape and naturally also gave the lower leg some additional protection both when walking in the wild as in combat. You start wrapping your lower leg below instep or heel or around your ankle and stop at the knee. Windings are not included with the trousers. You can choose leg bindings separately to suit your style from our selection.
We don't have too many original Viking Era pants surviving till our times but it's commonly thought that this style pants were especially common amongst the Rus Vikings/Varangians that sailed, conquered and traded along the eastern river routes from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea. These river routes through modern day Russia and Eastern Europe are called the trade route from the Varangians to the Greeks.
Material is sturdy 100% cotton and the textile has been washed (pre-shrunk) before sewing. Pants can be washed in warm 40 degrees (Celcius) machine wash. The waist can be fastened with a drawstring. The waist of the pants is wide on purpose and makes part of the style.
