Riveted buttons on the front and back accommodate your favorite pair of suspenders and an adjustable back offers the perfect fit. Matched separates also available in several color options.

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.

My go-to for Wild West and Civil War pants
I bought a pair in black a few years ago for Civil War reenacting and loved them so much that a few years later I bought a pair in brown for Wild West reenacting. The legs are long enough that I was able to take the left over fabric and make a second back pocket. These are high-waisted pants, so order based on the diameter just below your belly-button, not your hips. Also note that there aren't any belt loops (belt loops weren't invented until just after WW1) so plan to wear suspenders or use the adjustment tab in the back. I use both. The fabric is a durable canvas, and the legs are loose enough that you won't get hot in them. Button-fly closure and matching buttons for the suspenders. They're a sharp pair of pants, suitable for 1861 or 2022.

Quality trousers
I was not disappointed when I received these (and early). They look just like the picture, heavy duty cotton canvas. They are tricky to size as everyone's profile is different. Therefore read all of the sizing instructions and suggestions. I ordered measurements just as recommended and it turned out right for ME. But I don't necessarily think that will work out for everyone. It will depend upon variables in your body shape, probably more than just a measurement or two. Anyway, I am happy with them.

love the trousers
These are very high quality trousers. The only thing that I had to do is remove the label which took about a minute with a seam ripper.

Best ever
I have spent the last 25 years looking for this pant. It is everything I hoped for. It fits perfectly as long as you follow the suggested measuring guidelines. These pants are made of the highest quality material and will last for many years.

The pants I purchased are heavy duty. They fit perfectly when I used the guidelines suggested for sizing. These are top quality pants made of the highest quality material and duplicate the old west pants I have always loved but could never find in stores. They are great. I cannot say enough good about thses. They are worth every penny spen on them and I plan to order another pair. I have been difficult to fit. These pants are sized exactly as they are listed. I did not have to make any adjustments that you would normally have to figure out for clothing that is sized overseas.

Really Large
The waist was advertised as being larger due to where they ride so I ordered based on the recommendation size. I could easily fit at least a size smaller. The quality looks good though. Length is a little bit long but I was expecting that based on the website info.

As good as it gets!
These trousers are a better quality than my work pants. They do run a little large and as advertised will have to have the legs hemmed. Very happy with them!

Everyday use
The quality and sturdiness is wonderful. I will be using these for everyday use and not just for special occasions. I feel the style is great and been lost in time. Thank you for such a wonderful pant and product. I will be getting more.

Order a size up - they rock
These are pretty wonderful - I plan on breaking them in with some yard work and garage cleanup. I got them for fun - along with the braces. I'm wearing them now. I am happy with the purchase so far!

Great pants
I bought these for only occasional use but the pants are robust enough to be worn as work wear. Great product.
