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.

Really good quality-not a great fit
These were not very true to size. And they were way too long on me and I’m 6 ft tall. I had to hem 4” off the bottom.

really big in the seat
Style is what we were looking for. Have now tried second pair. Good in the waist but the seat area he could carry an extra load. way to roomy to take the time to alter. they will be heading back soon.

Great Value!
These are heavy, exceptionally well-made trousers. Like period trousers do, they sit extremely high on or even above the natural waist, and need a quality set of suspenders to complete the fit and look. They are easily hemmed (and can even be self-hemmed if you know what you’re doing; I happen to have a great tailor available to me!). Paired with the Livingston Brushed Cotton Frock Coat, and with the addition of a high-collar shirt and a nice waistcoat, the number of period/historical impressions that can be carried off is impressive. Wonderful value for the price; if you’re serious about historical dress (that can easily be worn in contemporary use) that isn’t “costumes”, these are the kinds of items to have in your wardrobe!

These were better than I was anticipating. Soft fabric and nicely assembled. Worth them money and sized as indicated.

Great service
I was very pleased with how soft the material was and the length was plenty long for my 35 inch inseam

Great Purchase
My husband couldn't be happier with the fit and fabric. We read other reviews, we measured and ordered one size up from normal size pants. They fit great. Thanks for a great place to buy well made clothes.

I wish I could give less
If I could give less than one star I would. I got these pants for my fiancee because he's a big man and pants are hard to find for him, especially the length. He put them on last night and no sooner did he sit down than the seam along the zipper busted right out. These pants were not tight, but they busted out anyway. Then, he put his hand in the pocket and the stitching busted out there. These are the worst pair of pants we have ever purchased for him.

Great material
The cotton material these pants are made with really add a lot of class and authenticity. Very sturdy, like you won't snag, wreck or split it no matter how much you try. Really glad I went with this over wool!

Livingston cotton trousers
Undoubtedly, when I ordered, did I not take enough measurements of this pants, because the legs were much too long: some adjustments should be made by the dressmaker before I can enjoy this pants of very good quality.

Good Quality
These are very thick, heavy and of good quality workmanship. I had to return them because I just couldn't get a comfortable fit quite right. But others may love them and get them to fit like a glove. Not a summer pair of pants! Very thick and heavy, great for cold winter months and you have to get used to the thickness of them.

They were made well however, they run a tad bit small to size

Better Than Advertised
Every one needs a pair of black trousers, and THESE are the trousers you need. Their fit, finish, and quality are unsurpassed. I ordered them one size larger than my usual, just as suggested, and find them to be perfectly sized and surprisingly comfortable. The fabric is much heavier, more durable, than I expected; this is a GOOD thing, as these trousers will give years of comfortable and stylish wear. I highly recommend them as an additiona to any man's wardrobe.
