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.

Vigilante Man
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sueded riding pants
This garmet was beautifully made out of quality fabric. Unfortunately the pair I received had a small flaw in the fabric in a visible area so I had to send them back. Fit: These riding pants would probably work best on someone 5'4" or taller. Also the waist is very fitted, no give, even though the garmet has lots of flowing fabric. I'm 5'1" weight 125lbs and the waist on the small was pretty snug ( my waist measures 30") Very disappointed they didn't work.
Oct 29, 2016
Absolutely, Gloriously, Perfect!
They fit is as if they were custom sewn for me and me alone. The pockets are fairly horizontal so they don't pooch out badly. The fabric is butter soft, and the rise exactly matches my waist to crotch ratio. They swirl nicely around my legs as I walk like a skirt, but since they are pants, my thighs don't have to be overly friendly. :) As I am not a small woman, my thighs do not always have a civil relationship with each other. I ordered the XL - I have a 40" waist and they measure exactly 39"... I'm okay with this. I WANT MORE!!! I can totally see what I am wearing this summer.

Excellent quality, but runs large!
The fabric for these sueded riding pants is lovely, and they are lined. The only initial disappointment I had when I received my first order was that the sizing was way off! I have a 31.5" waist and initially ordered a Large that was supposed to fit waists up to 32" but I was floating in them, they were enormous around the waist and not even wearing a belt would have helped. I returned them and ordered a Medium that was to fit waists up to 29" and they fit perfectly. So something appears to be a bit off in the measurement guidelines. I've noticed this to be true with sizing recommendations for blouses as well based on two purchases made. Aside from that these riding pants were a great find and I absolutely love them. The photo doesn't quite do them justice because I didn't think the fabric would be as high quality as it is. I would definitely recommend these riding pants if you're looking for an item like this, just be cautious about what size you order to avoid the hassle of having to ship it back to exchange it for another.

These riding pants are great, I have an American Quarter Horse and have used them to ride in, they are comfortable and perfect for this. The quality is very good and hard waring, only problem is they will get dirty quick using them this way so I will need another couple of pairs, might even have a blouse to complete the look. My stables are based on the Western theme and we have open days where we set the Dutch Ovens up over the camp fires, finding this Historical Emporium site will enable us to dress up to make it more authentic - expect more orders coming you way.

The skirt was way too big. When I was ordering it I was told that they run small so even though I usually wear a small or 4 that the medium would probably fit best. The medium was at least 2 sizes too big. I have experienced other orders that the sizing was undependable.

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.

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 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.

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.

Wahmaker Frontier Pants
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.

excellent quality
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

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 purchase these trousers every chance I get! I use them for all kinds of shows and characters and I love adding them to the costume stock. They fit, wear extremely well and actors love them! True to size. Purchase with confidence!!!!!

Awesome pants
I got so many great complements on these pants. I did have to have the legs hemmed, but that wasn't really a problem. The pants size matched what I ordered, and they fit great.

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.

Good Choice for me
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!

The pants fit perfect. Thought I would never see a button fly again.

Striped Trousers
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.

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

Great pants. On the heavy duty side so probably best for cool weather!

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.

Great trousers
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.
