Men's Trousers

(17 reviews) Write a Review
Customer in Classic Trousers, made from cotton denim

SUM is now offering reproductions of commercially available trousers.  Our trousers feature side seam pockets and do not have a watch pocket.  Facings are minimal and are from 100% cotton muslin.  The trousers feature front and rear suspender buttons and a button fly with hand finished button holes.  The rear of the trousers features a belt back with japanned or brass adjustment buckle.  A great example of a commercially available trouser of the period.  These are the quintessential trouser of the mid-19th century that will last for years.  The pictures not do these trousers justice!  

If your size and color/fabric choice is not in stock at the time of order, a wait of approximately 4-6 weeks might be necessary.


Sizing information:  Like all of our trousers, these trousers are sized at NATURAL WASTE size, which is your true waist at the navel (bully button).  That usually will not be what your modern jean size is.  Jean sizes have "vanity" inches built in, so please measure your waist with a tape and make sure of your actual natural waist size before you order.  For example, if you wear a modern jeans size of 38, your natural waist might be a 40 or 42.

    Great fit.

    As a somewhat taller individual, it's fantastic to have a pair of trousers that has a decent rise. They come up to wear they should and fit properly, giving a nice silhouette around the waist and hips. Furthermore the pant-legs have a gentle taper downwards, which gives you some options compared to the looser fit seen in other reproductions. They fit true to size and held up for me, I would recommend these for the price-point any day.

    Great Trousers

    Posted by Jason Harris on 2nd Dec 2020

    I received my trousers and was absolutely delighted. The fabric is a great print and weight. The craftsmanship is excellent. They fight just like I would hope they would. I liked them so well I ordered an additional pair.

    Excellent Quality

    Excellent quality and historical accuracy for the price. You may beat these pant, but not for the money and not without making them yourself.

    Terrific Period Correct Trousers.

    Posted by Michael S. on 5th Dec 2018

    These are an unbelievable value. I don't know what elves Chris has making these up for such a low price, but you are getting authentic, period "Ready Wear" trousers in quality fabrics for the price of sutler row. I won't question how he is able to do it, but I plan to order a few more pair while they are available. HIGHLY recommended!
