The standard issue long pants were a basic uniform item for all unmounted personnel and was obligatory wear for all ranks for the field dress. The long pants were also worn by EM/NCO’s with the service, guard and reporting dress and by NCO’s with the undress uniform. The long pants with branch of service piping down the outside leg seams were introduced in June 1935 and were also worn by unmounted EM/NCO’s with the parade dress and by all ranks with the walking out dress. Originally the long pants were produced in stone grey fabric until 1940 when regulations dictated that newly produced long pants be constructed in field-grey fabric. Further production of the piped parade/walking out pants was discontinued at the out break of the war but could still be obtained as a custom made, private purchase option.

The vertical outside leg seams each have inserted red rayon waffenfarbe piping. The pants have straight cut, non-adjustable cuffs. The buttons appear to have their original stitching.  The pants are roughly size 36" waist.
