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.

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.

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.

Slate gray
These seemed to run a slightly thinner fit through the legs than the cotton and canvas pants, this is fine for me. The pants are a very nice gray, lighter than most slate grays, it seems to pair well with almost any color of shirt. The pants are a quality feeling wool mix, great winter pants. The buttons are quite a bit larger than the metal style trouser Historical Emporium sells, and unfortunately I'll have to replace them for my suspenders. Overall, these are some pretty good trousers, as with everything I have bought from HE it's a well made garment and I am thoroughly impressed.

Fit right out of the box. Well constructed, material has a good weight without being too heavy. Seem very durable. Looking forward to wearing them at my next living history event.

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.

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.

John Wayne would have been proud to wear these.
I mention the Duke only because I was re-watching Rio Grande and saw this very style being worn by all the Army personnel. The quality is so good that I wish I could wear these everyday, much more sturdy even than my blue jeans I have. These trousers were purchased for my Airship Pirate Doctor, excellent for sailing the open airways.

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.

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.

Humboldt Stripe
This is my new favorite outfit. I feel like a fancy banker or perhaps a mobster. The color is like a worn/distressed navy and the stipes add a dapper touch that accentuates my 6'3" super slim frame. The buttons match the stripes nicely. I feel as the fabric and pattern will wear well for many years. I'm a bit in between sizes, 42" chest, but the medium fits handsomely. 36" waist is my normal, stayed with 36" and they fit great. I do wish the best came in a tall option, but it covers my suspender tabs and waist strap on my trousers. I couldn't wear it with modern waisted pants, but again I'm 6'3" and 190 lbs. I have several vest and trouser sets from Historical Emporium, super excited to finally have something blue.

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!

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.

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.

Wahmaker Frontier Pants
These pants are great, very sturdy and a great color. They are very comfortable as well. This is the second pair of canvas pants I have bought from Historical Emporium and have found that they stand up very well to wear and tear. *Note: for those who have never bought a pair of pants like this, you need suspenders (sold on this site as well) to wear these pants effectively.*

Excellent Trousers!
I took the advice of everyone who left a review. Buy these in a size larger than your regular pants size. It'll be much more comfortable. These are the best quality trousers I've seen. They're sturdy and will make the envy of others. Great for working in or making a statement. You won't be disappointed.

Nice pants but
I bought these as a woman to wear. They are amazing and the quality is wonderful but the buckle in the back has some kind of strange prong closure that makes it stick out and it will not stay flat. It is uncomfortable when sitting or leaning against a hard surface. Not much I can do except change out the buckle for another type since I've already washed the pants. Otherwise very nice.

Wahmaker canvas pants
It may take some getting used to the 19th cent. fit. These are correct and well made. I had to exchange my original pair for a larger size by 3"larger than my actual waist. They sit at the bellybutton, so bare this in mind. Once used to them, with a pair of suspenders, they re comfortable and actually easier on the stomach than modern pants. Highly recommended.

I found your site on line and am pleased to say that the pants were exactly like my first pair. Actually, they are better. I gained weight over the years and the new pants fit a lot better.

I have been wearing heavy canvas pants with suspenders for 10 years while operating a historically accurate canal boat. Heat and the bulk of the pants have made them unbearable. My new lightweight cotton period pants have allowed for easier movement and less suffering from the heat.

These trousers are perfect for our upcoming production of "Newsies!" They fit well and are perfect for the end of the Victorian period.

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.

I Need More of These!! :)
I absolutely have fallen in love with these Khaki trousers. I have integrated them into my daily wardrobe, and for my body type (medium/large - "Husky" build), suspenders and trousers like these are a perfect fit. I've paired these trousers with a brown leather shoes, a light brown tweed vest, and a light blue collared shirt that has a cream and white check pattern in it for a timeless, dapper look. I would love to immediately buy 3-4 more pairs of these and add them to my wardrobe, however my size (40) is out of stock, with no replenishment date set by the manufacturer at this time. You better believe I'll be checking back for these on a regular basis so that I can buy some. In the meantime, I'm considering going to a local tailor and having a couple of pairs of Chinos made that feature the high waist, and the suspender buttons that are featured in these trousers. These are absolutely fantastic.

Great Trousers!
I am always impressed by the quality of Historical Emporium's clothing. These trousers and are a nice weight, but not too heavy to be hot in warm temps. They fit as expected from the other pants from HE. I received many compliments on my outfit (bought the matching jacket as well) at our Mardi Gras ball. I am anxious to wear it Mardi Gras day! Thanks HE!

Shoot em in the coat, the pants are mine!
In 2016 I weighed 468 pounds, had a 60 inch waist and a 64" chest. I went on a diet and lost 200 pounds. I put on my old pants and they fell to the ground. I followed the instructions and ordered thees wunnerful pants one size greater than what I now wear. The 46 waist is very nice. I must shorten the legs inseam to 31". The pocket placement is perfect for me. Vertical on the front and deeeeep!

I got my order on time, and the product is exactly what I wanted. Very comfortable! As always, make sure you read all the info regarding the sizing so you don't have to exchange it anything. I purchased this pair of pants for my Malcom Reynolds (Firefly) cosplay at Denver Pop Culture Con 2019, and cannot wait to try it out! Thank you Historical Emporium!! Sidenote for any other cosplayers going as Malcom Reynolds....It does not have Mal's signature stripe down the pant legs, so you will have to sew it on yourselves. This is not a complaint, but something to take note of.

Khaki Pants
These pants are perfect khakis for a gentleman like myself. The pants have a classic rise that comes to the navel and a fish back. The pockets are lined in the khaki canvas. If you are a slimmer gentleman like myself you will want to order in the same size (or even a size smaller) than your typical pants as these sit at the stomach and not at the hips like modern fashion pants.

Great pants
These lightweight twill trousers are just the thing for summer wear. Extremely comfortable and (except for the length prior to alteration) a perfect fit. I wear these all the time, not just to "Western" events, simply because they are so comfortable, especially in hot Texas weather. Why we ever transitioned to bluejeans, I'll never understand. I'm very happy with these, and plan to buy a couple of additional pairs.

Perfect!
These pants were exactly what we needed! We ordered one size larger than my son's usual pant size and the fit could not be better. Excellent quality and the lightweight twill will be perfect for summer. We have previously purchased these pants in the cotton canvas and were also quite pleased with the fit and quality of those. Shipping was incredibly fast. Even though we were told it would be about a week, we received the pants in a matter of days. We would definitely purchase these again!

classic canvas trousers
I started buying these trousers for reenactments (suitable for a wide range of impressions and periods), but now I wear them all the time. I hope you stock them for a long time because they take forever to wear out. I particularly like the comfort of a "suspender" fit and the fact that the pockets are made out of the same tough material as the pants themselves. It's impossible to put a hole in them.

These trousers are amazing! The Fit and Quality are excellent! and look great on the Husband. Amazed at the thickness of them, these will be replacing his jeans. We'll be ordering more, he prefers the cut and fit to 'modern' pants. thank You for offering such great clothing. Cheers, Tere

I use these pants as a costume and they work for early Victorian through the 1950's as well as for Western wear. I have purchased many of these pants over the years and they never disappoint! They are true to measured size.

Quality trousers
These trousers are comfortable, fit great (did purchase one size larger like was told) great for men who carry a gun in pocket because of very deep pockets, also can carry my gloves, etc. when out in pasture working. I am very pleased with the quality and fit. I purchased the suspenders from you also.

Good trousers
Overall, just as described. Trousers fit well, and are comfortable. Only negative comment, minor issue where the stitching attached the front fly to the legs. Just unbuttoning the fly and the stitching ripped, can repair by hand, but seemed like the stitching wasn't very substantial from the factory.

These pants are definately work wear. If you were punching cattle, on a rail gang, or any other hard work you would be wise to choose these trouser pants. The cut, fit, and style is made for work. They are sturdy, no "hen skins". I am completely satisfied.

Classic canvas trousers
I'm very happy with the quality of these trousers, they washed up nicely. These are not a light weight summer trouser by any means. At this point I don't know how the color will hold up after a few washes with them being crimson. It looks to me like these trousers will last for a very long time, even if the washing machine fades the color.

Classic canvas trousers
I followed the recommendation of purchasing these trousers a waist size larger than what I normally would wear. Instead of a 42 waist a 44...perfect fit in the waist, very comfortable, the workmanship seems to be high quality. I like these trousers very much.

Great fit but there is an issue
Giving this five stars because they fit very well, once shortened by the tailor. They will look just right as my husband works at a Victorian Western theme park. These crimson pants will be used while he's running a carousel and a Ferris wheel at birthday parties. I'm hoping that they will not fade with frequent washing as the last pair did. That pair which we ordered about 6 months ago, was black and lost their sharp color within a few weeks. He can still wear them while teaching gold panning on different nights, as the faded look works OK with his 49'rs character. But for the price, I'd hoped for more. He will probably stick to browns from now on as they fade much less. This is Jim's 5th set of trousers from Historical Emporium in the past 3 or 4 years. If they were a bit less we'd probably purchase them more often.

fab fit
I am 6" 1' and weight 183 lbs and normally wear a size 34 for normal pants. So I ordered a size 36 for the crimson canvas and it fits me very well. Had to get the length adjusted by a professional tailor. Despite not having a lining, the canvas pants are very soft and comfortable. Will probably go for the olive green next time.

Santa likes his pants!
Professional Santa needs work and less formal clothes. These period trousers are perfect for Santa to wear with special needs kids and adults that are intimidated by the full formal Santa look. C9lor is a dark purple-ish crimonson, which is a nice change, but woild like a good scarlet in Santa size. They also are tough enough to take the wear and tear of people sitting on your lap. Wash up nice, kind of yack tolerant. Will buy again.

I really like these pants. They fit well; the waist is high so that it looks better compare to todays 'low-riding' pants. I like the long inseam because I can hem the pants to my desired length. I will certainly show at Historical Emporium again!

Pants look great. The fit is good, if you realize that they intentionally ride very high (middle of my stomach) and *need* suspenders.

The high waist seemed uncomfortable at first, but they make perfect sense with a waistcoat. It's hard to slouch while wearing that combination.

measurements ??
I like the trousers but would like them even more if they fitted me. Despite following your explicit measuring formula exlicitly, the tousers were so big that i could have fitted myself into them twice. I had the trousers as a gift from my wife on Christmas day. You can imagine her disappointment when i unpacked my present. After having paid import duty and the shipping cost they became a rather expensive pair of trousers which I can't use. Dissapointment all round. As we don't live just around the corner (Europe) it's too difficult to come around to exchange them for a smaller pair that would fit me and too expensive. So here we are, i'm stuck with them. May I suggest that you review your measuring chart, or, if the chart is correct check that the garment measures up the the size on the label. It's a pity that things didn't turn out as we had hoped.

Nearly Perfect
I love these trousers. They look great from the front but be aware that on large fellows like myself, when coupled with suspenders they look a little like a pair of wading trunks one might wear trout fishing. My advice is to never wear them without a vest or jacket on of some kind to cover the waist.
