These pants are known as "Grötbyxor" ("Porridge pants") in Sweden and were issued for the Swedish army back in the mid 20th century intended to be worn as casual clothing when spending time in camp.
The pants have a wide and comfortable fit and are made of a durable twill fabric. They have a chinch backs for easy adjustment of the waist size.

The condition of the pants is over all good for there age and given that they have been worn by the army one can expect that they have been used a lot but over all the condition is great. The fabric has developed a softness that only can be achieved by years of use and lots of washes. Making them a most comfortable summer pant!
