High waisted quality pants
Excellent pants - I wear a waistcoat daily at work and modern pants just don't work as the shirt always sticks out. These high waisted pants work wonderfully with a waistcoat. High waisted pants and a belly mean they can look a bit shapeless and they were too large which I expected on arrival but a good tailor helped. Bought 3 pairs for work - great store and will buy again. Very Happy with my purchases.

Great pants!
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.

Edgar Striped Trousers
I bought these trousers as a sample first purchase before I dove in all the way on my Tombbstone/Doc Holliday/Val Kilmer outfit for my annual Halloween party. The quality and fit are excellent. I then ordered the rest of the outfit (Historical Emporium has the product lineup to essentially recreate one of the Doc outfits). Also excellent. I recommend their products. Very pleased. Customer support is also very friendly.

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.

Nice pants
They're great pants, but like all the pants on this site, it's hard to get a good fit. The 1 size up rule doesn't apply to all brands because they are made by different manufacturers. A lot say machine wash gentle cycle, but arrive marked dry clean only.

I'm super impressed with the quality of the fabric. It's soft, thick, luxurious. They are right- the fit is pretty snug for the size and the waist is outrageously high... both really work for the historical look, but it's something a bit different from the norm so be aware.

I was surprised when these pants arrived to see how long they were. My actor was not available to try them on so I had them shortened to his measurements and they fit perfectly. The rise is very long in these pants but they look wonderful. Don't be dismayed when you get them by how long they are.

Great, well made pants.
I found out that just ordering a size up is enough for the high waist. I initially ordered up too much, and they were way to big. Once I got the right size, and had the length altered, these pants fit great. I received many compliments on the styling. Well made, heavy material, and the lines at the seams matched nicely. And, a big shout out the the folks at Historical Emporium for excellent service. They were wonderful and easy to work with when taking care of my swap for the right size.

Although quite long, as the description states, I am without a doubt extremely satisfied with these pants! It is literally the best money spent on a pair of pants in my lifetime. The fact that they sit higher on ones pelvis crests (waist) gives a comfortable feel. And I like that I can down the road purchases real suspenders. Even without suspenders the pants do not fall due to the tensioning strap in the lower back.

These are the single most comfortable trousers I have ever owned! They advised going up one size for high-waisted, and that was exactly right. I am usually a bit apprehensive about buying fitted clothing over the internet, because you can't try them on first, but they were spot-on perfect! Construction is sturdy, the material is nice and heavy, yet very soft and comfortable, and the overall quality is outstanding! The braces and vest were amazing as well.

These are first-class trousers, made of a very thick cotton. All sewing and buttons are top notch. Regarding sizing, I wear Levi's in a 33 waist, but followed the instructions and ordered a 36 pair of Ludlows. Waaaay too big. Reordered a 34 which fit perfectly! Fantastic purchase!

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

Great Pants
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.

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.

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.

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.

Great Pants!
This is the second time I have ordered the Ferndale Striped Trousers due to their great look and reliable quality. While they are true to size as described on the website, it should be noted that because they are cotton, they do stretch once worn and heated up by the body - similar to how jeans will stretch out once worn several times. I highly recommend these durable trousers.

My favorite pair of pants!
These are probably the best pair of pants I've ever owned, I wore a pair for over a year or so before the constant use and abuse wore them out. I was devastated when I could no longer wear them and the Emporium didn't have my size at the time, luckily they finally came back in stock recently and I couldn't be happier! They're comfortable, sit nice and high, and have plenty of room in the pockets. I love the stripes and how they look once properly hemmed, I definitely recommend 'em

Wow! These are great! Wore them w/ my Vigilante coat to Church & received lots of compliments. I'm one of those jack of all trades kinda guys. I can weld as well as stitch a seam so I hemmed them with a 1" rolled up cuff for snazzy-ness sakes. Also, ordered a size up like they said to do & what a perfect fit! Now I'm ditching jeans as work pants & ordering the canvas version of these. They're that comfortable & well made :)

Great Fit - Great Advice
These period trousers worked perfectly for the theater costume I wanted to create. The advice of ordering one size bigger than your normal pant size was most helpful and assured that the fit was ideal. I normally wear a 36 waist (35 really) but to be cautious I ordered the Ferndale pants in a size 38. The higher-riding waistline fit me perfectly and once my wife hemmed them, and suspenders were attached, I was totally satisfied with the look and authenticity. The website stated that size 38 was "special order" and could take 10 to 14 days to arrive. Imagine my surprise when they came in 4 days. Great service and great product.

Terrific trousers!
I'm a little surprised I didn't buy these earlier. They're very nice on all counts. The pattern and color look sharp; bolder and more eye-catching than solids, but not so much that they're garish. The material is lightweight and comfortable. And they just look dang good. Frankly, I'm starting to think the matching vest is calling my name to go with these pants. In short: These are a good pick!

Superb period look & quality
The stripe in these trousers give it a great period look. The level of contrast between the darker and lighter stripe is perfect, just enough to be noticeable in a photo. Fabric sits in a nice comfortable zone between casual and formal; you can dress these up or down depending on what you pair them with. I concur with other reviewers, the navy looks more black to my eye...but this is good, makes these more versatile. Fit is snug, sizing up is a good idea.

Exactly what I wanted, I'm a tall guy and the extra length that comes with the pants made them the prefect length.

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
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.

Fantastic!
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.

Great Pants
The fit was great. Not what you would expect from mail order. I'm a little old fashioned anyway so I just informed my wife that I'm gonna order several pairs and wear these exclusively. They are so comfortable, I don't understand why these aren't still the fashion for men today.

Trousers
Although I prefer if the label were hidden on the inside, these pants were of an amazing fit & quality. Can't go wrong buying these, much easier than sewing your own.

Havent had them tailored yet, but they look nice. The fabric was much heavier and thick than I expected, but still like them

Perfect for School
Bought these pants for my sons birthday and even though they were the same brand as the brown ones we bought just a few weeks earlier, the 34 size was way to big, looked like my son was sitting in a barrel. So we exchanged them, very quick and easy process and now my son is happy and will be wearing these to schools at least once a week I am sure since they meet dress code.

Awesome Trousers!
Having ordered from other vendors, when I receive packages, I try to temper my expectations and generally prepare myself to be disappointed. But when I opened my HE packages, I was ecstatically surprised! All I can say is WOW!! You guys are phenomenal! The style, quality, fit, packaging, shipping, customer service... everything has been simply fantastic! I am very proud to be an official new customer! Actually, I have to say the style, quality, and fit of your clothes is superior to my daily modern clothes and I think I'm going to see where i can reasonably swap out your garments for my modern ones. I cannot say enough good things! Customer Service was very responsive in answering my questions about availability, etc. The other huge factor that is very impressive is your fitting directions! They were dead- on and turned out perfectly! I was worried about having to go back and forth to find the right size... but you nailed it! Your care and effort are greatly appreciated!! THANK YOU!

PERFECT!
I was nervous ordering without actually seeing these items. But no worries. They are 5 STAR! The trousers I ordered are top of the line! I was also nervous about the sizing. But if you follow the directions you wont be disappointed. My grandsons wear the same size in pants but different sizes in trousers. The directions say to go by the upper waist measurement only. So I did exactly that. One grandson wears a 34” in pants, but that is not what you should order. Because he actually measured 36” three inches above his waist. So I ordered a 36. They fit him perfectly! Another one wore at 34” in pants too, but measured 38” three inches above his waist. So I ordered a 38”. Again perfect fit! These trousers have a few inches of ease built into them, just like ever other pair of pants. Which you will need if you plan to walk sit or bend. So do not order you normally size. Order your measured size three inches above the waist for a comfortable fit. These trousers are the best I’ve come across. They are extremely well made and will last a life time for civil war reenacting. The only thing I have to do is remove the sewn on tag on the back. I also order suspenders. They were perfect 5 STAR as well!

Awesome
These trousers are Awesome. Exactly as described, and as with All of the trousers, needed to be cut and hemmed. They fit well with suspenders! Love these. The dirt (mud) does show quite easily on these, but when dry, the mud brushes off easily, leaving almost NO residue. Top quality! I have already recommended this site to several individuals, and will continue to do so! Prompt delivery, and reasonably prices, Even the duty was reasonable!

These black pants look even better from the back. Detail is great. Very long so that they can fit anyone. Have to tack them up on the inside. Don't forget to get the suspenders to hold them up and complete the look.

High quality trousers
These are really great! Heavy duty, heavy weight fabric that will stand up to a lot of use. I love how comfortable these are. When I took them in to have the hems taken up the seamstress said that she rarely sees clothing of this quality. Ensure you follow the instructions and order one size up from your usual trousers as these sit higher on your body. Make sure to order braces/suspenders as there is no provision (or need) for a belt. They match the classic black canvas work vest beautifully. I'll be back for more, I wish I could wear them everyday!

classic classy trousers
I bought these to replace a striped pair in our costume closets. We can use the black ones and my grandson was so in love with the grey striped pants he wore in a recent show that I gave those to him for his birthday. He loves them, his girlfriend loves them and I think it would be a good change for a lot of high school boys.

Pants that fit
I am a bespoke boot maker and live in a Victorian/Western town in the American SouthWest. The Black Canvas Trousers are a perfect fit for everyday wear, and a great replacement for Wranglers which I have otherwise worn all my adult life. The leg length is perfect for the stacked look which I prefer, and the smooth front waste feels secure and comfortable with suspenders. The heavy duty cotton fabric gives me great service as my everyday work pants. And the cinch belt at the back even keeps me looking like I still have my "glutes".

Good value
The fit was just as I'd hoped and the value for these pants is very very good. I'm not too crazy about the front pockets and metal buttons and button fly, but I understand these to fit with a western feel for what seems ot be the style of these clothes. Also, this canvas is quite stiff for what I expect to wear in an everyday trouser, but it's very sturdy material. Overall I'm really happy and intend to buy more of this style of trouser.
