Default m40 hbt pants (not m43) ?

interesting hbt pants here
although site described as m43 combat pants....they seem far more like m40 work pants, with the simple extra addition of back braces loops.

https://fjm44.com/product/mint-m43-p...mbat-trousers/


no buttoned watch pocket as per m43s, m40s had unbuttoned pocket; no tightening tabs to leg bottoms, as per m43s, no front belt loops either. maker's specific side tightening tabs, buttoned not with friction buckle.

tailor altered, private purchase?.but not typical 'combat m43s' in my opinion. interesting pants though for sure.

These trousers, while likely wartime manufactured, are not for either Heer or Luftwaffe HBT service uniforms. This material was used for numerous work garments by many organizations. Who knows? Techniche Nothilfe? RAD? KM? Feurwehr? DRK? SHD?

A hoard? Most likely not! If you'd look closely you'd see those are the exact same trousers
