    Recently found this beautiful KAZ57 parka dated 1960.

    Not an unusual find per se,  but not usually found  in this size ( about a 120 chest ) and conditions ( unissued ).
    It does have normal lenght sleeves, not the familiar short ones.

    I agree, a very nice condition early production piece in a HUGE size. As it so happens I just saw what might be a good size trousers for this parka. Looks to be 108cm.

    https://www.ebay.de/itm/Flecktarnhose-Osterreich/254430962169?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3D0840e12b2ab647e6be1f5e2838b802f1%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D233351114465%26itm%3D254430962169%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2060778&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507

    The price is pretty steep, but maybe after the guy doesn't sell it a few times the price will come down.

    Note that this is M59, not M57. Easy difference is snaps on M57, buttons on M59.

    Thanks Steve,

    Yes, definitely a  KAZ59, not 57.

    Thanks for the link ; they are definitely  big .      I dug out these near mint KAZ59 trousers today; they have been with me since the 80s.
