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.

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.)

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great product.
These well-fitting pants are made of tough canvas. The length was more than sufficient to allow alteration to my inseam length. They are comfortable and I look forward to many years of cowboy shooting in them.

Great looking, fitting & authentic pattern, well made & tough enough for the dirt & grime of the outdoors. Just throw them in the washer, cold water, & I dry in the dryer about half way, then stretch them out & lay them out side to finish drying & do not even need to iron.

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.

Excellent Quality By Wahmaker
I purchased a pair of the Wahmaker Frontier Canvas Pants for everyday wear, work or town you name it. I am extremely happy with the quality, workmanship and materials. I especially like the fact that they are made in the USA! I followed the sizing notes on the website and the fit is perfect. I would definitely recommend these pants.

I bought these to use as work pants I wanted American made and machine washable. These pants by Wahmaker are both. Since they have pockets they are practical for everyday use and comfortable to wear! I am extremely pleased worth every penny. I wear my pants once a week. And I am a blue collar guy so these pants see some wear and tear if you know what I mean.

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.

Great pants
The Frontier Canvas pants are some great looking trousers whose riveted button fly and suspender buttons make it feel really authentic. The canvas construction gives it a weight and texture you just can't get today.

I ordered these pants for my husband and he is already asking for another pair. He says they are very comfortable and help support his back. I ordered one size up from his normal size and the length was perfect. The bonus is that they are made in the USA!

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 bought a pair of Wahmaker pants 15 years ago. They still look good. When I decided to buy another pair, I found the store was no longer there. 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. The quality is excellent and the fit is very comfortable. I look forward to buying more pants in the near future.

These pants are excellent quality. They come really long. I had to hem them by hand which was extremely difficult because the weave was so tight.

Great trousers
These are very accurate reproduction trousers from the 20's and 30's. Real fabric! They do, however, need to be hemmed up as any fine pair of pants would be. So you will need a seamstress. I love how authentic the costumes are from Historical Emporium

wow
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.

Pretty much the same as the review for the Summerhill pants. The color combination for the Chadwick outfit fits what i wanted and needed for performing in the park. Do wish there was a spat option to really make the look.

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.

I'm part of a steampunk organization and these trousers fit perfect - the exact size ordered, not over or under-sized. You will need to hem the legs though - they are super long!

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.

Great compliment to the matching vest and frock coat. Pants are a snug fit on your waist, so if you want them loose, go up a size. Braces will hold them. Legs are straight but not skinny jeans type.

They are everything I hoped they would be. They are strong and well made, as good as any blue jeans. Sizing advice was spot-on, they fit perfectly. The only mistake I made was not buying suspenders as the same time. I have some but can't find them now that I need them.

very good pants
I bought these trousers for every day wear, and so far I am very happy. I am 6'2", 270 lbs and bought the size 44. They are comfortable and fit me well, and the pockets are plenty big enough for all my junk, including wallet, leatherman, lighter, pen knife, small magnifying glass, lucky rock, and occasionally a snub nosed revolver (I have a license). These are the second pair of trousers I've purchased from Historical emporium. I've had the first pair several years and I wear them frequently. If you like to wear something other than jeans, these are a good way to go.

Good pants
The pants were everything I hoped they would be. Build quality is nice, the back cinch is easy to use, and the material is thick but not uncomfortable. Legs are a bit long, but that is easily solved by a quick trip to a tailor, or rolling them up. The price is fair, especially for such a niche product. I'd say I'm going to buy another pair - but I doubt I'll live long enough to wear out the pair I already have!

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.

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.

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.
