Where can I find Cargo Pants in Zurich?

Hi - I've been looking for cargo pants in Zurich for a few months now. previously I had purchased it on-line but would like now to see and choose.
I think I have covered all the shops on Bahnofstrasse but I may have missed it.
Anyone can tell me where to go?

Try an army shop for a wide choice of cargo pants.

I found this one through google

I'm not alone. I love Cargo pants with pockets.
I find it difficult to find loose fit Cargo pants
New fashion lines are a bit tight on the bottom.
Ordering army stuff from Amazon is a bit risky size wise.
Will check this store if still around. Thanks.

You could also try the Military Megastore. They even sell Swiss Army chocolate.

Re: Where can I find Cargo Pants in Zurich?

There is a surplus army shop on Löwenstrasse, parallel to the right of Bahnhofstrasse, very close to the train station. The window display looks a bit on the kinky side, for some reason, but I think they carry cargo pants.

Search for Bundeswehr Hosen Schweiz
https://www.google.ch/?gws_rd=ssl#ne...+hosen+schweiz

I get all mine online, without the need to see in advance, from http://www.kraehe.ch/ with the thinking that if it is good enough for the army, it is good enough for me. However, I am no slave to fashion.

+1 on the megastore. Some of the stuff they sell is just junk, but not all of it. The real surplus stuff is interesting too, if you happen to want something like a stainless steel bucket or such. I go there all the time (not that this is likely to surprise anyone).

Re: Where can I find Cargo Pants in Zurich?

And they sometimes have stuff you can't get anywhere else. I found their knee high socks are great because they're thinner than the ones in other stores - perfect for spring and autumn when it's too cold for stockings and too warm for the thicker socks. Did get some nice thicker socks too, probably mid calf length on guys, but nearly knee high for me. They keep my feet nice and warm in the winter.

Some reason being the woman that inherited from her father is rather eccentric. She's been offered vast amounts for that building and won't sell.

Actually, if you stop and talk to her she is pretty nice. Not really all that eccentric, as eccentrics go.

Next time I'll stop in. I appreciate strong-headed people who won't sell to the next corporation no matter how much money is being thrown at them.

Re: Where can I find Cargo Pants in Zurich?

I was picking up some vinyl from my supplier in Dietlikon, googled the Military Mega Store shop and it was couple on minutes away in the Shopping Center Greenhouse.

Nice cargo pants. Down from 60 chf to 9 chf in my size.

What a bargain!
