Sable Brushed Cotton Trousers

Item: 002586



Our Sable Brushed Cotton Trousers are a welcome change from the black and khaki garments seen all over creation these days. In rich color of brown with all the late 19th century detailing, pull these pants up and transport yourself to another time and place. Part of our matched Sable collection and available in different colors.

Made from practical brushed cotton with that feels most akin to sueded leather, these trousers feature flat-front styling with two slant pockets in front and a single back pocket. Suspender buttons, a back adjustment belt and the V-notch back waistband will convince anyone that you are, indeed, from another era.

Made from 100% cotton and unlined for comfort, hemmed with a 36 inch inseam. Machine wash cold, line dry. Imported. Available to fit gentlemen of varied girth in waist sizes 26 - 60.

Sizing Notes

As you can see from the photos, these old fashioned trousers sit higher on the body than modern pants do.

For best fit, measure your torso (in inches) just below your belly button, and select this size of trousers.

In many cases, this will be one or more size above your customary pants size.


Our trousers come with a 36 inch inseam. If you need them shorter, you will need to have them tailored locally to your desired fit.

Brown pants Victorian
Absolutely fantastic! I am a seamstress but did not have time to make my husband a pair so I ordered these. They arrived very quickly and were absolute perfection. The waist size was small so I went up two sizes and they fit him perfectly. I've always had problems getting them long enough for him because he has a 33 inch inseam and these were way longer than he needed so I had to him them which was no problem. I would recommend these pants in fact I have to other members of my community for this purpose. A plus all the way!

From the material, to the fit, to the button fly, this is an authentic piece of late-19th-century clothing.

not a great fit
I received the pants and found them to be very bulky and wide for my legs. I had envisioned I could wear these pants in the winter casually, but they are more costume quality and oriented so I returned them accordingly.

Sable brushed cotton trousers
Perfect fit (I'm 270 lbs.) 44 inch waist. With these trousers I don't need to wear braces, although I sometimes choose to for the desired look. Most of the trousers I purchase from Historical Emporium I do need to wear braces(not a negative). This just happens to be a pair I don't "need" to if I choose not to. Very, very nice quality, soft material but very heavy and thick. Not a summer trouser.

Happy with These Pants
My husband loved the pants. Seem well made. Fabric very nice. We read other reviews regarding sizing. We ordered two different sizes to insure correct fit. One size up from his normal size was perfect. He's going to look fantastic playing music for the Tennessee Historical Society. I would highly recommend this company and these pants. Nice color.

Sable Cotton Trousers
These looked great and fit well but do need to be shortened and the material was a little heavier than I expected but manageable.

Very good
I ordered these from Australia, so there was no returns as far as I'm concerned. I'm glad I took the risk - I'm really happy with the fit, style, and quality. I use them in my professional context (counsellor) where in winter I like to wear a waistcoat under my tweed blazer, and high pants are much better for that. These fit the bill perfectly, and the material complements the other quality fabrics I wear. I normally wear 36 and so I ordered 38, and the fit was spot on.

Exactly what I needed! I perform old time music and needed traditional attire. I was hesitant to buy clothes online but this was spot on. Be sure to measure yourself properly and you will have no problems!!

excellent quality, look and feel. only down side was the length. as a size 32, was advised to order the size 34, which fits perfectly around the waist though requires some serious length trimming. either way, very happy with the product

Sable Brushed Cotton Trousers
Excellent pants and quality. You definitely need to order a size or two above your normal pants size as suggested.

Fine cloth
I received my first order today, the promptness of which surprised me, moreover, I was delighted at the quality of the merchandise, it being beautifully made and of a far heavier cloth than what I'd expected. I look forward to buying from you again.

Sized small
As other reviewers have noted, these pants are sized small. Someone recommended going up two sizes and I thought "that's ridiculous". Well, I'm now waiting for my exchange that is two sizes larger than what I wear normally. I would not have even fit in my normal size and one size up may represent period appropriate "fashionably tight" - I really don't know. Despite this the pants are excellent and well made.

For the Win
These pants are made for comfort. The fabric is extremely soft, though sturdy. They are "high wasted", though all that means is that they come up to your actual waist. As one of my co-workers put it, "It's like a hug all day". They don't restrict movement so if you're looking to buy for LARPs you can't ask for much more. I've bought them originally for a LARP event but now wear them for work and will be using them for a wedding as well. Top quality product, and amazing customer service! For size fallow the suggested messurments, they are pretty spot on. I'm only going to have to get them hemmed about half an inch. I also bought the "Livingston Black Brushed Cotton Trousers" and "Classic Canvas Trousers - Brown" same experiance on all of them.

Exceeded Expectations
I wasn't sure what to expect. Past experience with costume shops had me ready for average products, at best. So it was a big surprise to receive high quality, heavy weight trousers. The rest of the outfit was just as nice, in quality, and style. The clothing is easy to mix and match, so if you can't afford one of the more elaborate outfits, you can start with a shirt, and trousers, then add additional items later. It's not like the clothing is going to go out of style. My only caution is to pay attention to the sizing recommendations. I'm a slim, distance runner, and still had to get used to the higher waste on these trousers.
