there is a place in England that has them, but they are not too cheap. I can get you details if you like?


actually, i just checked their site and would like to know if FSU has m69 in size 58-188 or 60-188 (they list the size as that) i hope that is the same as 58-5/6 or 60-5/6. It's got to fit someone with a 48 inch chest, and 40 or 42 inch waist, and a height of 6 feet.
can you e-mail them or phone them if this is in thier stock? everytime i send them e-mail myself I either don't get a response or the response doesn't answer all the questions (haven't quite managed to reach them on international dialing since i don't have that service in my landline or my cell)...and if you could ask them what is the shipping cost to Washington DC. thanks.

I will also send them e-mail about it, but as i've explained... they are hard as hell to get in contact with...




I e-mailed them earlier and they tell me they have 58/176 and 60/176, which i fear is still bad since i am 6 ft, and 176 is for 5'7 ft person. it's better than nothing though...

M69 was definitely manufactured in size 60-5, as I own a set I procured from FSU Connections (UK) several years ago, and Antisemtex you are quite right, it was definitely the definitive uniform of the Soviet ground forces from the late 1960's to late 1980's. However, I do not know anyone selling these in such sizes, and I suspect that large numbers of leftover M69 uniforms were bought wholesale for Hollywood productions during the 1990's (example: Goldeneye, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, etc).
Be are the pants are shorter than you might expect (compared with similar sizes in M88 afghanka, for instance), as they were intended for use only with sapogi.

hell i would even get a repro if available. and photos from soviet afghanistan war show troops wearing the breech-like m69 trousers with laceboots; not only sapogis.
