Callahan Dress Trousers - Black

Item: 003801



You’ll take our Callahan Dress Trousers in Black to task, literally. Pleasingly practical, these useful pants will see you through your work day followed by a dinner out with your lady.It’s what to wear on your bottom half for that vintage 19th century look.

These are all era-specific design features found in pants from the 1800s. One inset pocket on the rear and two side-slant pockets in front provide room for a gentleman’s smaller items.

Made from a comfortable, wrinkle-resistant blend of 70% polyester, 18% wool and 12% rayon. Unlined. Dry Cleaning recommended, but can be washed in cold water and line dried. Imported. Inseam 36 inch Available in sizes 26 – 60. Part of our Callahan collection.

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.

Followed the size instructions when ordering and got a perfect fit. This order completed the period attire I was going for so is not my first nor will it be my last. I have always been well satisfied. Will be ordering again soon. Wore for the first time at an event at an antibellum home tour as a guide,received many compliments and request for pictures.

Great feel
Really well done! Great quality nice lightweight fabric suitable for the warmer weather. You will have to have the hems taken up unless you are really tall. These are very comfortable and they do sit higher than the usual trousers so ensure you go one size up when ordering.

Meh. Fit a bit large, not really well made, unfortunately. For what I paid I expected much better.

Very nice quality. The will fit differently so measure appropriately. They look and feel great. You will need to get the hemmed and be sure to get suspenders.

Black Callahan dress Trousers
Great fit for right out of the box except they had to be tailored for the length which I knew ahead of time so it was no problem. Goes excellent with the rest of the ensemble. Superb quality.

Very well made, but do run a size-maybe two-smaller than what I usually wear. These will last a long time.

This trousers are very light but comfortable. The material is a bit thin which makes me worry about catching it on something But my girlfriend loves the way I look in them.

These trousers are a personal favorite. I like the uniqueness. I like how they can be modified for fit. Great dressy set of pants.

Very thin and run very small
My husband and I went to Dickens On The Strand in Galveston in costume. He normally wears size 40 slacks -- at his waist, not slung under his abdomen -- so I heeded the recommendations and ordered size 42. They did not begin to go around him. I briefly considered exchanging them for size 46, but doubt even that would have worked. The deciding factor in my simply returning them was that they were surprisingly lightweight fabric and easily wrinkled; not what I expected for the price, nor what he needed for an early December Victorian event after days of travel. (Galveston temperatures are better than Kansas, but can still be brisk.) However, the design was good and they seemed reasonably well made. If you are slender and have time for an exchange or two to arrive at the correct fit, want pants for summer time or the tropics, and have ready access to an iron, these might be fine.

Perfect Quality and Versatility
I keep using the word versatile with my comments on purchases from the Emporium, and it is very true of these pants too! LOL However, I'll definitely add the word comfortable to the description. These pants are intended to ride high, so for heavens sake do not use your regular pant size when ordering, and get out the measuring tape. It does not matter which side of the Atlantic you are dressing for. They work perfectly with the Callahan Frock-coat, as expected, but it turns out they are also perfect with a formal Argyll Jacket, that you will normally only see worn with Highland regalia. These are the only trousers I've found that create the correct formal look with that jacket. On a cold winters night, it is entirely too drafty for kilts! This years New Years celebration will be much more comfortable, as well as stylish, for this old man.
