Good trousers
These trousers fit my husband well. He wears them with Leather Buckle Suspenders Black (which he LOVES!). They look good with his Victorian Formal Tailcoat - Black Wool. Thank you!

Well made, but large
Well made trousers, good quality fabric, but the size we ordered was too big. We returned & re-ordered a smaller size.

No Way
I'm not happy with the product. At all! Just not what I had in mind. The fit is terrible, the material is substandard and the overall product is dreadful. The fact the organization sent me an invitation to review the product is a reminder to return the trousers for a refund. Yuck!

Cool style
I get lots of complements when I wear the high waisted trousers I get from Historical Emporium. I have several different pairs. The Callahan dress trousers are particularly sharp when paired with the vest. Does require hemming due to length, but that is very affordable at a local tailor. The retro style allows me to be comfortable in just short and pants, but not too casual. Perfect.

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.

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

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.

Nice and well made. You have to go by your high waist measurement to get proper fit. Husband's chest and high waist are 44 so that is the size I order. The fit is perfect. You will have to hem them or have it done by a seamstress. No biggie.

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.

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.

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.

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 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..

Great quality
These are well made and historically accurate trousers. I like the way they fit but the material, though cotton, is heavy. I thought it would be much more lightweight for the summer which is why I got the cotton instead of wool. They are closer to a canvas.

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.

My trousers arrived quickly, and upon inspect showed excellent quality of construction and material. My only regret is that I misjudged the measurement of the waist, not knowing exactly how high it was cut. I should have added three inches, not two. However, they will fit, albeit a bit snugly, and they will look great.

Terrific Trousers!
I got these pants because I liked the very similar Sable pants and wanted something "dressier." They're extremely good-quality, and pair very nicely with the Livingston vest or really any outfit. Gives it a nice offset. Note, though, that until you first dry-clean them, they tend to pick up hairs and lint.

Excellent product. This is my first buy in historical clothing and at this site. They answered questions about my sizing over the phone, and it arrived in the time window they projected. Great quality, very professional and sturdy. They look great. I measured my waist at belly-button and was surprised it was almost 38 inches(Usually a 34" pants is roomy on me), so I got a size 36 and its perfect. Snug at the waist, plenty of room on the legs for bending, etc. They come extra long, so be prepared to have to take up some, but that leaves room for a cuff if that's your thing.

Nice, but strange proportions
You have to be pretty skinny and very tall at the same to fit in these trousers without adjustments. Folding up the legs are easier than expanding the waist, so go for a size somewhat bigger than usual if you are not sure. The feeling and the look are superb, though.

I bought the Ludlow Trousers as part of a costume I was going to wear to Comic-Con. Never having been to one before I was a little vauge on what my look should be but being influenced by the First Doctor from the UK Sci-Fi show Doctor Who I was determined to abopt a Victorian/Edwardian look. Having "window shopped" the Historical Emporium on line for a while it was the first place I turned to for the products I wanted, and I was not dissapointed. The products I ordered are all top quality and the service just as much so. Can not reccomend or praise you high enough. Diolch

REALLY LONG WAISTED / STIFF MATERIAL
I've never been disappointed with any Historical Emporium product....until I ordered these trousers. The striping / colouring is great....but the pants are really long waisted (reaching the bottom of ribcage) and, after washing, heavily wrinkled and stiff as canvas. They'll need more than a good pressing to look good ....maybe rolling over with a steam roller! I WILL STICK TO WAHMAKER AS MY TRIED AND TRUE BRAND OF PANTS. They didn't come in humboldt stripe so I ordered this brand. Bad move. Maybe the manufacturer could consider pre-washing the material (stone-washed?) using some kind of softening agent before cutting and assembling these pants. Having washed them, I will keep them, but cut and sew them into a vest instead. Too hard and stiff for my comfort level.

A Little Roomy, But It's All Good
Picked these up for a costume. I'm a 32W/34L. The pants that arrived felt more of a 33W and 35L. I say this without having measured a thing. Ordinarily I would have sent them back for a smaller size, but the roominess allows me to make some killer dynamic poses. So it's all good!

Alterations
The trousers are well made. You need to have the inseam altered for your length. Also the Crotch needs to be brought up as it hangs to low. But its worth it for a pair of quality Trousers.

These are excellent quality pants! Worth the money! And they're extra long so you can hem them to fit

great pants
these pants are very well made, from a sturdy jean-like material. They are more bluish in color than the pictures show and you WILL need hemming - Unless you are 7' tall. Mine came with flat buttons (although the pictures show some ornaments on them). Also I followed the instructions and bought one size up from my normal pants size and they are quite a bit loose. But you can adjust the strap in the back - there is quite a bit of room. Overall I am pleased with the purchase - it should work quite well with the Canvas work vest I bought as well.

The Only Pants You NEED
I was thrilled when they arrived. Ordering one size larger, as suggested, the fit is perfect and very comfortable. These high quality, durable, denim-like trousers will wear a long time, and are just the thing to wear; whether you're laying track for a railroad or heading out for the Spring Quadrille at Mrs. Huffington's, the style is perfect. I use them for every day wear, and love them.

I give these trousers a five star rating.
I give these trousers a five star rating. Choose one size up. I went with a size 52 waist. Truly authentic victorian or western look and very comfortable. Unless you are super tall, be prepared to take up the inseam; for me, I went up 7 inches. I did it myself using special self-stick velco made for fabric, which you get at certain fabric chain stores. Or go to your tailor. I love these trousers. I also bought the matching homboldt vest. You need suspenders or Y-back braces to hold these trousers up.

Great Trousers
Great quality and fit. I followed the instructions and ordered one size up and had no problem with size. I will say I am medium build with proportionate weight. Even if you are larger in size I think one or two sizes up from your normal size should work with no problem.

A vision in stripes (Pt 2)
A nice change from the more traditional black and black pinstripe suits I'd usually wear, the Humboldt stripe trousers, when worn with the matching Humboldt waistcoat, are guaranteed to make you stand out. They work well as casual trousers or something more formal, or for workwear (try matching the Humboldt trousers and waistcoat with the Livingston black brushed cotton town coat, black boots, a white shirt and a black tie. Trust me - it works). The trousers are generously cut (a little loose in the middle, truth be told; the adjuster in the back takes up some of that slack), and the fabric has a nice texture to it that does lend itself to play as much as work. The buttons match the colour of the stripe perfectly, by the way. If you're thinking of buying them, I'd recommend it; you won't be disappointed.

Humboldt striped trousers
Pants vary in sizes, it's a hit and miss. One 34 will fit like a 33 or 35.

Perfect for the Tinsley House
My husband is a volunteer interpreter at the Tinsley House at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Montana. Our dress is supposed to depict the 1890' s homesteading era These pants to are just perfect. He is demonstrating the weaving looms and needed a look a bit more tailored than others who work in the gardens or the blacksmith shop. Stop by and visit the Tinsley House and farm. (The museum also has a great dinosaur collection.)

Best trousers
I was hesitant in ordering these online. But I am so happy with the product. The material is absolutely wonderful. We ordered one size larger and the fit was perfect. Will definitely be shopping at your online store again.

Rich color, excellent "feel" to the fabric
Had to return the first pair, my body shape required a different size than the size chart suggested. No problem, replacement arrived very quickly. My seamstress custom fit them to me, she was quite impressed with material and construction. They do have a very long rise, but drape well and look good while wearing them.

Great pants, fit smaller than other historical...
Title says it, the pants are AWESOME. Well made, durable, and beautiful. But be warned size up! If you have order historical emporium pants in the past and they fit got up an additional size for these.

Sable Cotton Trousers
Perfect choice to go with the sable frock coat. Good construction, but the button fly is tight and must be broken in. Soft cotton fabric with enough bulk to stay warm even on cold winter mornings.

A Little on the OD Green Side I was looking more for a dark brown. I had to buy a second pair because they run really small. I had to add 4 inches to my waist size to get a pair that actually fits Now I'm stuck with two.

Wish modern trousers were all made like this
Quality is spectacular and the shipping is as if I walked into the store and purchased it, delivery from the west coast was quick like I've never seen. Customer service top notch, size of clothing was as described. Best to get one size larger as with all dress clothes due to the high waist. Best clothing company ever!! Awesome customer service, will order again and again.

Brown pants Victorian
Absolutely fantastic! I am a seamstress but did not have time to make my husband a pair so I ordered these. They arrived very quickly and were absolute perfection. The waist size was small so I went up two sizes and they fit him perfectly. I've always had problems getting them long enough for him because he has a 33 inch inseam and these were way longer than he needed so I had to him them which was no problem. I would recommend these pants in fact I have to other members of my community for this purpose. A plus all the way!

From the material, to the fit, to the button fly, this is an authentic piece of late-19th-century clothing.

not a great fit
I received the pants and found them to be very bulky and wide for my legs. I had envisioned I could wear these pants in the winter casually, but they are more costume quality and oriented so I returned them accordingly.

Good quality and fit
I was pleasantly surprised by the thickness and sturdiness of the fabric for these trousers. In addition, the fit is very good; I have "child-bearing" hips and big thighs, so I was worried that there would be fit issues even though I selected the right waist measurement. However, aside from just a hint of snugness in the thighs (no more so than a modern pair of skinny jeans), the fit is excellent - very comfortable. They definitely need hemming, but that was expected.

HANDSOME trousers
These trousers are well-made, sturdy, and worth every penny. I DID have to have them hemmed and the waist taken in a bit, but again, worth every penny. Great fabric and color.

Sizing off
Slim cut in thighs and legs. Purchased one size up (normal 36, purchased 38) to compensate for high waist, yet insufficient room in thighs and legs. Not a "classic cut," more a "skinny jean" leg. Returning.

Bought them,,, wore them,, maybe I should have got one size smaller,, mail order is always a crap shoot as far as fit goes,, but they fit fine,, so far,, appear to be well made and should serve well for a Slovak impression,, or can even sneak into an 18th Century Rev War event as overalls... you do have to hem them which is good,, why a 4,, cost... but than again I'm cheap...Yes,, I would buy them again,,, go ahead and pull the trigger on a pair....O and yes they have brace buttons on the inside of wast band; so can be worn with or without braces...
