Hey guys,

Soon I will reproduce german long underwear. I have an original pair for reference.
I will try to find a similar comfortable fabric and also original white paper buttons. I could make them adjustable or not (the latter would be correct)
These will be custom tailored to the sizes you need.

Would anyone be interested?

Here are some photos. Paper buttons are still missing.

They actually fit in the Keilhosen very well.

You can attach them with the little loops on the inside.

And tie them with the string on the back.

I will try to find a cheaper fabric. They will be around CHF 50 (= $52 = €46 = £35).

Excellent. I'm trying to find an accurate but cheaper fabric. I will update the (missing) pictures as soon as I found something.

Hey guys, here's the update:
I reproduced my first pair for a customer. I found a nice and comfortable fabric, hence I will be able to sell them for $55 only. If you're interested, send me a PM with your sizes or in case you have any questions. They will take a while, since I'm out of original paper buttons.

Pictures will follow.
