Viking-style trousers are certainly one of the most important pieces of clothing for an authentic portrayal of a Viking or a Slav.
These trousers 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 has a 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.

To determine your dress size based on your body measurements, please measure horizontally at the widest point. For tops, please measure yourself around your chest. If you are between two sizes, we recommend that you choose the larger size.
