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
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.

This is my second pair of Baileys from Historical Emporium. The material is light, but I've worn my original pair a lot with no sign of wear. Fit/length is great for me. The crimson of these is brighter than the photos show - you've been warned!

Not for the shy. But very fun and nice. I found the "32" inch waist was 34 inches when measured, but I've bought these pants before in another colour and ordered a size smaller than my actual measurement, and when they came they fit perfectly, so... The material is lightweight but seems strong. Certainly unique hah!

Owned these for a couple years and they still...
I've owned the Bailey Trousers for a couple of years... and I've not been nice to them. In spite of that, they still look great and fit great too. They are well constructed as well as comfortable. Even after repeated washings and being worn in harsh environments, they still hold their color. Great pants, that are versatile with many different outfits/costumes I have. I should mention these pants have no comparison to something you'd pick up in a costume shop... they are comfortable, wearable, and built to last. Well worth the money.

Great Pants/Run Small
These pants are really cool looking. They will be worn by my groomsmen in my steam punk wedding. They wear size 28, 34, and 38 pants. 28's weren't available, so I ordered that guy a 30. The 30's fit perfectly. The guy who normally wears 34 had to use the size 38's. The guy who normally wears 38 will need a 40, so I'm in the process of returning the 34 pants so I can get the 40's. Also the pants come unhemmed so my fiance will be hemming all the pants. Good thing she knows how to sew!

trouser fit
Got these for my husband to wear in the National Day of the Cowboy show in Sedona, AZ. The first pair were way too tight and cut really small. He has been a 32 X 36 for the 37 yrs we are married. I re-ordered from the 1st pair of 33 to a 36 waist and those fit him. Also the length is cut to a 38. He has no body fat or gut, wash board stomach and yet the cut on the 33 ran way too tight. Yes they ride higher than most pants so I suggest order up sizes. He is 6 ft 2 inches tall. Loved the summer light fabric and bright colors.

SIZING
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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

These trousers are a great choice for our upcoming production of "Newsies." They fit my actor well and he looks right in style for the historic period.

I Love these pants!
Let me begin by saying that I wear Historical Emporium clothing as part of my everyday wardrobe. Their products are reasonably priced and very well made and easily stand up to every day wear in my business attire rotation. I was looking for a lighter pair of pants for the warmer months and these are perfect! The material is sturdy, but very light weight and breathable. The pants are very comfortable. Why anyone would want to wear lower cut pants with a belt squeezing their waist is beyond me! The pattern is just as it appears in the photo. As with all Historical Emporium pants, they will need to be hemmed--but really, every gentleman should have a good tailor!

Great product, but read the sizing advice
These are very comfortable, and what I like most about them is their length - it's hard to get off-the-shelf pants long enough for me. The material doesn't feel very robust, but then I'm not going to be working on the farm in them. It would be nice if they were part-lined, but that would put the price up. Let's say I think they're good value for what they are. Be careful about the size you order. The product notes point out that these are higher in the waist than most trousers and that you'll probably need to get a couple of sizes bigger than you're used to. Believe it!

Classic Canvas Trousers Walnut
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

Wonderful!
The feel and look of these trousers will impress anyone who sees or wears them. Hardy material and quality craftsmanship make these trousers you can go to a fancy dress party one day and do farm work the next without a hitch. Great for horseback riding too.

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.

NICE WORK WEAR
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.

Wonderful, high quality
These pants are perfect for me! A short time ago, I discovered the joy of antique/vintage era clothing, especially when it comes to pants; both for how high upon the waist they fit and the fact that I don't have to wear a belt. This particular pair is exactly the one that I like, especially for its durable canvas construction, though I'm not opposed to other materials. Most of the week, I usually wear khakis, or jeans, but these will be perfect for sundays.

These pants is of amazing quality and craftsmanship. I normally wear a 34 but the 34 was a bit tight. I recommend a size larger. I called about the exchange and the nice lady was very professional and helpful.

The trousers are just what I was looking for. I really like the quality and fit of these pants. I was surprised at how deep the pockets were. I also liked that the pokets are made totally of canvas instead of thin cotton.

I Wear Them to Work
I'm sure others have different reasons for buying these trousers, but I bought them to work in. Let's get this straight: these pants are not costume wear. They are tough, heavy canvas with high quality construction. They are comfortable to wear when I get in and of a truck all day. Face it fellas, I'm not the only one out there whose belly is bigger than his behind. Regular jeans sag, and belting them so tight they don't sag means they're uncomfortable after a while. These are made for suspenders and they ride up by your belly button, which is comfortable but not the current fashion so I bought a matching work vest and nobody really sees the suspenders or the high waist. The day I didn't wear the vest, I had three guys - regular middle-aged working stiffs, Carhartt-type fellas - ask me where they could get pants like that. I've been wearing them for a month and will be buying more. Two final things. I didn't like the little "Frontier Classics" tag so I used a needle and a pocketknife to remove it. It took 5 minutes and didn't harm the fabric at all. And I got walnut because it's the color of dirt, but Ill probably get a lighter color next time. The actual dirt blends right in but they show lint and dog hair real easy. If I'd have been smarter I'd have thought of that, but anyway... Buy with confidence

I purchased the Classic Canvas Trousers - Walnut for a western movie. The pants were too long so I had them altered at the cost of $15. The first time I wore them I was on horse back. After the shoot, I went home and found that the crotch seams were ripped open. I would send them back but I have already had them altered. Now I have to pay to have them repaired.

If it was told to me that I could either wear these trousers or modern pants for the rest if my life I would throw away all of my modern cloths and gladly wear these trousers . They are seriously the most comfortable trousers I own, and that's why i ordered this pair and i know ill order more down the road.

Very good item.
These pants were very well made. I purchased for Civil War and Revolutionary War re - enactment, so I had to return. What I needed was a lighter fabric. These would make great work pants. The service was great and shipped very promptly. A good company to deal with.

Pantsy pants
I read a review to order a size or two larger than normal, and im glad i did. Im extremely pleased with the sizing, quality, and finish of these pants. Theyre perfect to use from my late 18th century to 19th century stuff i do. I highly recommend these, and if youre looking to make them look more worn they stand up superbly to tumbling and all the other aging tricks.

Great Pants
Found these trousers on a whim, searching for something my son could wear to school and still be observing the schools dress code. My son loved the pants, they worked great with the suspenders that he had purchased previously and fit great. As recommended we ordered a size up, they were a little big, but once you tuck in a shirt, put the suspenders on; they are perfect. I was also thoroughly impressed that we received them so quickly after ordering them, about a week and my son was wearing them to school. I am sure we will be making another order in the coming months.

These trousers are beautiful. They fit perfectly. Barely wrinkle. Why only a 4? Because the buttons are nice but have a flimsy sewing job to the garment. They popped off on the first day out. I do love them.

On the pants - Love them - I bought a size 38, it fits but it fits like a 36 Plus - It's OK, I wear a size 36 but I always like to consider shrinking over time - hopefully they will be OK.
