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.

Railhead pants
Ordered one size larger according to the advice. Good fit after washing and shrinking. Probably could have done with the true size. Very nice quality material and excellent vintage style. Just the job.

Awesome Period Pants!
These are well-made, tough pants. They've already been through two dress rehearsals and three shows. Great price, too! One bit of advice: wash/dry at least once before you have them hemmed, or plan to dry lean them. They're cotton, so it's not a surprise. Great looking, great fitting. Perfect San Francisco Barbary Coast trousers!

Railhead Pants
Bought these pants to wear to a MountainMan Rendezvous and was thoroughly pleased with the style,construction and appearance of these pants. The pants are well made and fit the 1800's nicely. I will caution everyone to order 1-2 sizes larger than you normally wear ! Thanks Historical Emporium !!! I WILL be ordering more !!!

railhead pants
The pants look great, information said to order size larger than you normally wear, I usually wear waist of 32 so I ordered 34's. I also ordered a pair of westport stripe trousers in a 34 size waist. The railhead pants, size 34, I could not even come close to get to button up, too small. The westport stripe pants, size 34, fit great.

After reading other reviews, I ordered a size up, but found that they were much too large, so had to re-order. They now fit like a glove. These are fab pants and create a gorgeous silhouette. You could dress them up or down and are a heavy cotton ( like jeans ), so, sturdy and look to have a good life span. They're very stylish and based on the purchases I've made ( I also bought a pair of suspenders ), the quality of these products have won my loyalty. I will be shopping here again, for a long time.

I ordered these trousers and they were shipped to me in a very timely fashion. The price was very good in my opinion for the quality of authentic period wear. I was impressed with the quality and color. I did that one of the suspender buttons was a little off in spacing when compared to the proportion of the other side but it's not really a big deal to me. I would definitely recommend these trousers to a friend.
