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.

Nice pants!
I wear a 38" normal waist, measured where they say to and ordered the 42". It was a perfect fit, Heavy duty and made well. They are dry clean only but to loosen them up I put them in the dryer with a damp towel on a no heat setting for a bit. They are long and will need to be altered.

Good quality
They are pretty impressive and the fit is good. Note that they are very long so you will probably have to hem them.

As advertised
These are a good item. Feels like cotton denim. Nice thick feel to them and true to the size chart.

I ordered this and several other items for my daughter's upcoming wedding. The entire package arrived several days earlier than expected, and I was skeptical of the purchase, but once receiving all the items I realized the material quality was high the fit was perfect and the price was great. I could not have bought a suit for the same price. I am amazed at the outstanding customer service from historical Emporium. I even had to change my pants size day after I ordered and it was corrected and I received the proper fit.

They are great but..
They are wonderful they are everything i wanted but they dont fit. I got a size 38 same style from this site and they are grey and they fit perfectly not sure why these are so much smaller. Luckly im on a weightloss journey so they will fit soon

I'm a big man, and these fit after hemming.
I'm 6'2 and 360lbs, and these fit great, look great (and period correct), and did not shrink in the wash too much. If anything, I might have been able to go down a size (but they'll have plenty of room for winter long underwear). The only PITA was having to hem them, since they come ridiculously long. The fabric is very thick and durable.

Definitely Order Larger
The people who said order a couple of sizes up were a godsend. 2-4 sizes larger than you wear is a solid suggestion. I needed more than 2 sizes from my normal; I wear a 34-36 and needed a 40 in my case. Comfy pants, tho! Very comfy. Honestly wouldn't mind having a few pants that fit like these. Also when they tell you to plan on seeing a tailor to get these hemmed, they mean it. Plan to get these hemmed for your height. I had to return my first order to get the correct size, but the return was easy and free of any hassle. Would order again, but given the quality, I probably won't need to replace these any time soon.

Good quality
The only negative thing is they come in standard inseam length of 36”. Please offer other inseam sizes.

Just okay
Pants were okay and fits well but the quality is pretty poor. Once again, not made in USA :( I would gladly pay more for better quality and made in USA.
