Well-made pants
In my case, it is usual the length needs to be altered on these type of pants. It was not unexpected. They are of excellent quality, fit well, and look good.

Nice Product
The pants well made and look great. The BIG PROBLEM is the length. The sizing only takes into consideration the waist. It should also ask the customer for leg length. As a result I had to take it to a tailor for alterations. An additional expense.

Vigilante Man
How can anyone not like this pant, at least anyone who does not appreciate the turn of the century fashion. Perfectly fit my WWI suspenders. Strong yet supple material, all cloth, no polyester etc. Love the high waist, but may take a little getting used to for the novice. I wear them to teach college writing class, and students think I am dressed in the latest fashion. Imagine that! Really no need to comment on the quality of the construction or material and sturdiness. They are titled "Vigilante," after all. I used to pay $60Us or less for Dockers, but no more. Why not make a statement that most will not pick up on. Pockets, also. I will wear this pant tomorrow to teach ENG100 at University of Hawaii's Hawaii Community College (that is the official title), with the suspenders and a white German field shirt. Beautiful. So happy to have found a seller that cares about quality, precision, and old school accuracy. Aloha, Loren

The pants are good quality and fit except for being super long (about 12" too long) so I will have them altered. They work well with the shirt and suspenders.

Vigilante Pants - be on your guard and vigilant!
Way too baggy around the seat, hips, crutch and legs. The pants only fit reasonably around the waist. I can't imagine that ready-made trousers around the 1900s were that ill-fitting.

choose 1 size up
I am very happy with the style and construction of these pants but when they suggest you to buy 1 size up you should listen. I am a 34 inch waist but I ordered these in a 36 inch because of that tip and it was exactly right and the 36 inch waist fits me just right. The waist on these is higher than modern jeans / pants which is why the slightly larger size fits better. when I got these they were a bit too long to wear with my luchesse cowboy boots but after I washed them they shrank just a bit and now are a perfect fit with no modifications at all. These look great with the Wyatt shirt I also bought and I am very pleased with them.

Freakin' Sweet!
I'm a wedding DJ and a big one at that. I needed a pair of pants that didn't feel like Wal-Mart clothing but were worth the price invested. I got that and more. These are comfy, tough pants(order them 2 sizes too big, they DO run a bit small) that ride above the gutline eliminating belt turnover and digging into your stomach. They're long as previously stated, but it only cost me $8.00 to have them hemmed at a professional alteration outlet and they are now bomb (perfect)! Get 'em, you won't regret it.

Good pants. Just remember that the waist is much higher than in regular pants, so order them based on your measurement near the height of your bellybutton.

AWESOME pants! I did order one size up based on other previews stating that they ran a little small. Sturdy, well-made, perfect cut (not too sloppy or too tight). Look great with the matching vigilante vest and black elastic tail suspenders! Well worth the money.

Get these trousers! Fit is superb and love the feel. Easy to hem and extremely well made. Purchased this for our steampunk wedding, but can't wait to find more ways to accessorize these pants.

Quality was good for polyester
I was hoping these would blend in a little better with the Victorian Formal Tailcoat that Historical Emporium sells but the 100% wool coat is really too nice to have a pair of polyester pants under them and the color was a little off. They are nice pants but not for historical use. Wished they sold a pair of 100% wool pants.

The waist size is a little snugg, now I have to pay $8.00 to get them hemmed.

High Quality
The highland pants are of high quality. I now have highland pants, vest, and frock coat and I am very pleased with the ensemble. Be sure to order a larger waist size than usual. Also be careful when hemming the pants as you need to be sure to wear the pants correctly when measuring for the hem.

By themselves they look OK
Bought to replace my belted suit pants but when worn with nice cloths the polyester really stands out. Might look OK on stage. Would be fantastic in a 100%wool.

Great, but order larger
The quality of the Highland pants is excellent, but I found that the waist size runs 1-2 inches smaller than modern store bought pants, so I had to do an exchange, which went very smoothly. Great product for a good price.

Great fit!
I followed the instructions on the site and took an actual measurement of my waistline before ordering. My usual pants size is 36 to 38, depending upon the cut of the pants, so when I got a measurement of 44, I was hesitant to order that size. Fearing I was ordering too large, I went ahead anyway, since the Historical Emporium honors returns, and was glad I did. Sure enough, they fit perfectly. Had the local tailor hem the legs, without cuffs. Great match with the Highland Vest/Waistcoat that I ordered a few months earlier. The only quibble, a minor one, was the missing suspender buttons on the back waistband (although the front suspender buttons were there), but the tailor was able to add matching buttons easily. These dress pants are the most comfortable that I now own.

Fit as Described
These fit as described. Nice details abound. I do wish Historical Emporium carried some 100% wool pants as more faithful reproductions of the fabrics used, rather than blends. Having said that, I am still pleased with these pants.

Fine quality: be sure to buy a size up from...
Good quality, matches the rest of the Highland set perfectly. Be sure to buy a size up from your normal waistline, as the pants sit at a higher waist position than do modern pants. You'll definitely want a set of braces to hold them up. Be sure to order in enough time to get them hemmed to your proper length. I found the seat to be just slightly tight, but not so much that the pants are uncomfortable. This may be a feature of the garment?

Good pants
These are some good pants. However, do remember to read that they come un-hemmed and fit around your belly gentlemen. You will also need to get a proper pair of suspenders for these or else they won't fit as well.
Apr 23, 2012

Good quality pants
I generally wear size 37 or 38 pants but measuring my waist according to the instructions came up with size 43. This have proven too big. The pants themselves are sturdily constructed and when I get the right size will probably become my favoured work pants..

Wahmaker has a much different cut
The quality of fabric and stitching is great but beware, the cut on these is way different than anything else I've purchased on this site(Dorian, Livingston, Herringbone Tweed Trousers, etc.) The legs on these are 2"+ wider throughout and I could only synch the waist adjuster when wasn't wearing the pants. These things seem to be Wahmaker specific. The description says they have a "boot cut" but I've never had a boot cut nearly this wide. If you like the cut of the other non-Wahmaker trousers don't get these. Get the Classic Canvas ones instead.

I usually wear a 32 to 34 waist and ordered a 38 and they are very comfortable not to loose. Remember the trousers are 100% cotton and will shrink just a bit after first wash and dryer. Will order another pair of trousers and try a 36 this time knowingly they will fit also. Had the leg length shortened up to 31" and tapered as well. The bottoms of the legs are 9" wide and had them tapered upwards from 8". Great fit now. The Wahmaker trousers are very sturdy and well made. A solid pair of pants.

These black pants are classy enough to wear to a more formal occasion, the working mans churchwear would be a good description. They are also tough enough to wear to work. USA made and machine washable a person couldn't ask for anything else from a quality product.

Western Steampunk costume
This is one of three items purchased for my costume. These pants are great!! Super comfortable and they come extra long for proper fit. I wore these for the first time 13 hours straight, on my feet walking for all of about 2 hours. These will never leave my costume. But these are not "costume" clothes. I would feel comfortable in their durability as everyday workwear if you wanted. Thank you. I look forward to future business.

Durability Guaranteed
These are a pair of sturdy pants that feel like they are going to last. I have started wearing them to work, and so far they have been holding up better than my normal work pants. They fit a little loose, unlike some pants that I have found fit rather snug. Extremely comfortable and low maintenance.

Very well-constructed; an excellent value. Shrinkage is there all right on first washing but is quite minimal in the waist. Should be washed once before hemming.

Construction and price
The pockets are made from very thin material and makes it hard to retrieve your wallet from the back pocket. The buttons on the fly are a little small and the price is to high. The Frontier Classics are better constructed and at half the price.

I was looking for some American made work pants that are not blue jeans and I have been extremely pleased with these pants they are tough well made and comfortable. Since they have pockets they are practical for everyday use. I wear mine at least once a week. I would recommend them to anyone.

canvas pants
Very durable and hard-wearing item. Be careful of the waist measurement. As they warn, you can't use your existing waist measurement as these actually are above your belly button. I measured around my navel, added two inches to my normal waist, and they were still a bit snug. side The legs are quite long. I had to hem them up. Aside. from that , they are very comfortable and look good.

Hats and Ties
I placed an order for many ties, two hats, detachable collars and a pair of goggles. I was amazed at how fast I received the order. All items were present and fit perfectly. The fact that the Canadian government wants to make my custom as expensive as possible is infuriating as it limits my ability to make further purchases from this quality company. I recommend Historical Emporium.

I'm 5'9" and 150 lbs. I usually wear a 32 waist and I ordered the 34 waist for these pants as suggested by other customers. They fit perfect. An old style woven fabric, straight legs, not tight at the bottom. I cut a few inches off the legs. Nice deep pockets. I paired these with a Stafford wool vest in small.

beautiful, comfortable trousers
These are excellent trousers, like my other Wahmaker trousers. This particular pair of trousers is my most comfortable pair of trousers, and looks marvellous. I would strongly recommend buying Wahmaker brand trousers over the other brands offered here (which are still servicable). The slight increase in price of the Wahmaker's is offset by a vast increase in quality.

Great trousers
These are attractive enough for me to wear to work, and good fabric. I'm a bit odd because I buy this stuff to wear every day (I'm a priest) - it's well made, reasonably priced, and fits my oddball sense of fashion. And it's locally (read "USA") made.

Great Fabric
These were a great fit, though a little tight in the seat. There's lots of fabric to work with if you need to alter them larger or smaller, and the manufacturing quality is top-notch. The fabric itself is an amazingly soft, light yet thickly woven cotton and is pretty breathable. They sit just barely below my natural waist at 6'1, but if you're a little shorter they'll be the perfect height. I cannot stress enough how wonderful the fabric is, and can be dressed up or down to suit your needs. I would suggest, however, being mindful if you are athletic because the legs are a little stovepipe-like.

I am a cowboy shooter and needed to wear period clothing for our events. These pants fit well and had the exact appearance I was looking for. And, I'm comfortable that their construction will lead to years of good use. They were well packed and arrived in good condition. Historical Emporium will be my source for early period clothing in the future. Roger - Atascadero, CA

Don't "Dodge" these Trousers
These were not my first choice for pants. Unfortunately, the Emporium was out of my first choice. After some consultation with their excellent Customer Services staff, we figured that these would be the next best choice to go with the coat, hat, vest, etc. that I already have. And they are! The color is a good compliment to the other pieces, as we determined in our email exchanges. The material is lighter weight than I was expecting, although that is not obvious when simply looking at them. However, that actually goes in the plus column, as far as I am concerned, since I will be wearing them in summer with a hat and coat. Should help keep my temperature down a bit. They seem to be of sturdy construction and the claim is that they are machine washable. I may have them dry cleaned with my coat anyway, just to be sure they stay as nice as they are out of the box. I also suggest going two sizes larger in the waist. Add a nice pair of suspenders form Historical Emporium and, between those and the adjustable back strap, you'll be able to make them fit just right. I'm looking forward to many enjoyable uses of these trousers.

Durable and Dapper
Second pair... the first lasted about 4 years of near constant wear, being switched with a taupe pair of the same design. They always get complemented and admired. They're better looking and more comfortable than jeans. They wash and dry beautifully. Follow the directions for sizing and they'll fit perfectly. You'll probably want them hemmed to your preferred length, and you'll want to buy a pair of braces (if you don't already own some) to keep them at the correct height; the buttons to attach your braces are already there. Whether worn with a plain shirt every day, or with a vest and coat for an evening out, you'll always look dapper and just a notch above the crowd.
