Didn't Fit
The Trousers didn't fit, when ordering I didn't realize the cut of the Trouser was to be worn high. I have a 42 waist at my belly button, but order a 38 waist because I wear my jeans at my hips. This was my mistake and not the Historical Emporium's. When ordering measure your belly button waist not your hips.

Quality Pants
I received my order within a week and the pants were exactly as described. They are made of heavy fabric and are quality throughout. Sizing was spot on. I bought them for Cowboy Action Shooting and a period correct for 1880-1890 dress. A durable, well fitting addition to my cowboy outfit.

Great warm weather pants
I bought this to wear in warmer weather. The fabric is thinner, but still rugged. I shortened the legs and had my tailor use the material to make a pocket on the left hip cheek to match the patch pocket on the right cheek. I've learned the value of having more pockets, and since I wear a long rifle coat with these pants, it doesn't matter if historically accurate or not; it just makes sense to have 4 pockets. The pants fit well and look good; not overly baggy but not rock-n-roll tight either. The fabric feels like its treated for repellency; they look good with the tuxedo shirt and vest. If you're going for the "Tombstone Marshall" look, these will work well.

size matters
I like the way these pant fit, but I ordered them in size 40 waist think that they would be loose fitting like my Wranglers... I think I may have to send them back to trade for a 42" waist size...

Well made nice 100% cotton
I really like these pants super comfortable my skin is super sensitive and these pants are no problem which really makes the difference for me. As for the fit perfect hangs really nice I have gotten multiple compliments while wearing them out regularly. I rolled the ankles but I might get the pants hemmed now because I know I like them a lot.

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 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'm a big man, and these fit after hemming.
I'm 6'2 and 360lbs, and these fit great, look great (and period correct), and did not shrink in the wash too much. If anything, I might have been able to go down a size (but they'll have plenty of room for winter long underwear). The only PITA was having to hem them, since they come ridiculously long. The fabric is very thick and durable.

Definitely Order Larger
The people who said order a couple of sizes up were a godsend. 2-4 sizes larger than you wear is a solid suggestion. I needed more than 2 sizes from my normal; I wear a 34-36 and needed a 40 in my case. Comfy pants, tho! Very comfy. Honestly wouldn't mind having a few pants that fit like these. Also when they tell you to plan on seeing a tailor to get these hemmed, they mean it. Plan to get these hemmed for your height. I had to return my first order to get the correct size, but the return was easy and free of any hassle. Would order again, but given the quality, I probably won't need to replace these any time soon.

Amazing Quality
These trousers are perfect. The material is heavier than I was expecting, but it's still comfortable on the skin. I was concerned with it being too hot but it's incredibly breathable and cool, probably due to being cotton and not synthetic material. The pockets are enormous, the fit is comfortable, and all the buttons feel durable and secure.

Long in the legs and snug but excellent quality...
These are very carefully made with excelent seams and sew lines . Obviously made by very attentive hands. Unless you are six foot 5 you will probably have to hem the legs. These are pretty snug for a 38 but they do sit high so if you have a belly go wider. Also they are thick material. Like a heavy dinim so expect them to be warm. Over all these are amazingly nice pants.

I mention the Duke only because I was re-watching Rio Grande and saw this very style being worn by all the Army personnel.

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.

Ive ordered two pairs of these now and my husband has 2 as well and the tweed ones (wish they had those in a 26 waist). These are pretty durable too. I would highly suggest these and other items from this brand as everything has been extremely satisfying.

Classic Canvas Indeed
I made the mistake of ordering a slightly smaller size, but that's on me, not on the pants or on the store. That being said, these feel like high-quality canvas pants. Like most other canvas clothing, it feels very, VERY, tough, and is typically stiff which is normal for canvas. I was surprised that the top button also had an extra button in the waist and there's also buttons for suspenders which is a really nice touch. Overall very nice pants.

I have looked for pants like these for years. They provide the vintage old west look I have always loved. They are built to take the punishment and still look good. I wear the black when I am hunting here in Montana, and I wear the black or tan when going to town. I love the way they fit as well. I am short and heavy but can still find a good fit in these pants These are very comfortable and again cannot say enough good about their durability. The button system at the waist is a dual button to allow for good durability and the fly buttons are placed well. Just a great pair of pants.

Very well-made pants. They have a good look and measure up in every way to their description. I am very dissatisfied with the Company痴 returns policy. After following their measurement chart with all honesty, I ordered the recommended size. I had to return them and order the next size up. The cost of returning was close to $20 and another $7.95 for the re-order. Pretty costly mistake when following instructions. It will probably be quite a while if at all, that I order more products while this return policy is still in effect.

I absolutely LOVE to wear these. They are fantastic, and if you do not have them you must PURCHASE THEM IMMEDIATELY! The canvas material is strong but there is plenty of space for your legs. However, these pants sit higher than your waist. Be sure to order a size up for a perfect fit. You may also need to have them hemmed or have to roll up the pant legs. But overall, this is an amazing pair of trousers.

Initially Unsure: Now, a Believer
Okay, hear me out. I bought these as an alternative to replacing my regular khakis once a year, hoping they'd be sturdy and well-made (they are!) Also- no need for a belt, so I thought that'd be nice. They arrived and were indeed high waisted, well above normal pants height (I sized up, and am on the fence. I may try ordering true-to-size, but I am slim). After a week of wearing them in, I'm sold. They're comfy, the canvas looks as if it might hold up for a decade, and after having them hemmed up (and removing that gaudy tag), I reckon they'll be my go-to leg coverings. I may order a more dress-pant version at some point, but they really are a very nice, unique, and comfortable cut of pant. I've already recommended them to a few friends.

Good product, sturdy and well-constructed
I work in traditional crafts - blacksmithing and carpentry - at a historical recreation facility, so the clothes I wear need to stand up to a bit of abuse. These pants work very well in this regard. The fit at waist, thigh, and calf is very good. The pants are intentionally shipped long with the expectation they will be shortened to fit. The fabric is sturdy. The stitching is even and tight. The buttons are good quality - better than the garment originally issued by the costume shop. The presence of real usable pockets is appreciated. It should be noted that as is historical they are meant to be worn with suspenders rather than a belt.

The perfect Rick O'Connell trousers!
I bought these for my husband's cosplay of Rick O'Connell from the Mummy. These trousers are perfect! I wonder if they're what Brendan Fraser really wore. The only difference is that these have buttons for suspenders and no belt loops. The pants are durable and heavy and seem like they'll last a long time. I have to hem them to fit my husband's height and I will use the extra fabric to make belt loops (and the belt will cover the suspender buttons). He has another pair of trousers from Historical Emporium that he uses for his Captain Mal Reynolds cosplay so I knew we'd get great quality again with these!

My go-to for Wild West and Civil War pants
I bought a pair in black a few years ago for Civil War reenacting and loved them so much that a few years later I bought a pair in brown for Wild West reenacting. The legs are long enough that I was able to take the left over fabric and make a second back pocket. These are high-waisted pants, so order based on the diameter just below your belly-button, not your hips. Also note that there aren't any belt loops (belt loops weren't invented until just after WW1) so plan to wear suspenders or use the adjustment tab in the back. I use both. The fabric is a durable canvas, and the legs are loose enough that you won't get hot in them. Button-fly closure and matching buttons for the suspenders. They're a sharp pair of pants, suitable for 1861 or 2022.

Quality trousers
I was not disappointed when I received these (and early). They look just like the picture, heavy duty cotton canvas. They are tricky to size as everyone's profile is different. Therefore read all of the sizing instructions and suggestions. I ordered measurements just as recommended and it turned out right for ME. But I don't necessarily think that will work out for everyone. It will depend upon variables in your body shape, probably more than just a measurement or two. Anyway, I am happy with them.

LOVE them!
I am very impressed by the construction of these trousers. Very well made. They are exactly what I had hoped they would be. For some reason, they were a little too large (I measured my waist carefully) but I had them altered and they fit like a glove, so comfortable I don't want to take them off. Definitely 5 stars!

Good Looking
My husband bought these for cowboy action shooting. They needed to be hemmed (as always) but they fit really well and he said they are comfortable to wear all day moving around. These have a skinnier fit than other styles.

As advertised
The trousers are well made, the stitching is excellent. The advertised size 42 was a true 42. The crotch area is very comfortable. The fabric is smooth, substantial but not heavy or stiff.

Ferndale men's pants
Outstanding quality and perfect fit (definitely order 1 size larger). Will be buying another pair or two in other colors. Shipping was very fast, received in less than a week. My husband and I are pleased, and highly recommend this source for all those steampunk items you can't or don't want to make yourself.

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.

Fit perfectly.
Do as other reviewers have suggested, and step up your pant size, just as I did. And don't forget to order your suspenders because if you think you can find button suspenders in your town as I thought I could, you will be coming back for a second order and paying additional shipping charges.

I love these trousers. Exactly as described, did need to cut and hem them, but that was expected. They fit well, and I am quite happy with this purchase. Highly recommendable Purchase.

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

light weight
the pants surprised me by being very light weight.. apparently i didn't fully read .. or they weren't described as such.... they do run smaller and rereading you need to measure your mid belly to get the right fit .. you cannot go by waist size and it does in fact say that in measuring for them SO pay attention..

Extremely Comfortable!!
Pants are GREAT!! Well made and much more comfortable than jeans. The rep I spoke to recommended one size up from my jeans size and the fit was perfect. VERY pleased with product and overall experience. Will definitely buy more clothing in the near future.

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!

Shiny!
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.

Well made, but large
Well made trousers, good quality fabric, but the size we ordered was too big. We returned & re-ordered a smaller size.

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.
