Surplus Militaire

Military Surplus

For a long time now, clothing and accessories manufactured for the army have had a life outside the combat zone, adopted by the fashion industry and even worn by anti-war activists.  

It is hard to not get seduced by and attached to their quality and clean cuts, designed for durability, performance and comfort. On top of that, they age beautifully.

deTOUJOURS offers a carefully chosen selection of military treasures, never worn, provided by military surpluses around the world.

SWISS ARMY

MILITARY SURPLUS SIZE GUIDE

SIZE NATO

The codification used by NATO allows to standardize army clothing sizes. The interpretation is easy to understand and avoids any errors.

The code consists of 8 digits in the form XXXX /XXXX. The first series gives maxi and mini size and the second specifies the maxi and mini chest circumference.

Examples:

• 7080/9404 corresponds to an outfit for a person measuring 1 m 70 to 1 m 80 with a chest circumference between 94 cm and 104 cm

• 8090/1424 matches an outfit for a person measuring 1 m 80 to 1 m 90 with a chest circumference between 114 cm and 124 cm

Worship side

Although the Swiss Army is not known for being belligerent, it is however an excellent procurer of beautiful military clothing. It dresses everyone doing their military service, which is still compulsory in Switzerland and so the soldiers keep their uniforms all their lives, in case of a general mobilization in the event of war.

This denim jacket in its traditional grey-blue colour, was created in the 70’s. It is simple and practical though its shape stands out thanks to the adjustable inside waist band, which offers protection against the cold and style.

It was very popular in the 80’s when high waists were the rule and at deTOUJOURS, it is here to stay.
