    1936-1940 is there any particular reason that you think these were made in that time?...
    google doesn't find much on these kind of trousers on that period so hard to compare...

    Well I could extend that time to early continuation war 1941-42 at latest.

    Brown and black small bakelite buttons appear always in pre-war trousers. Brown buttons are definitely earlier made, before winter war.
    Black buttons do extend to year 1942 but are much fewer. And as war continued green bakelite buttons starts showing up heavily at year 1942-43 onward.
    And at last ones ~1944 army clothing factory made have metal buttons.

    And that back side V-opening extends only to year 1945. After that they stopped making that V-opening to trousers.

    Buttons are my quick thumb rule to determine age. And I have seen many tunic-trouser pairs to determine age more accurately.
