Detail of Excelsior jean trousers

We are excited to offer these meticulously crafted trousers, available in our custom woven tan or gray 50/50 wool and cotton jeans cloth. Patterned from an original pair in the collection of the Merchant Tailor Museum, these trousers closely resemble those found in the Gettysburg NMP Museum. They stand out with their unique features including no waistband, an external watch pocket, side seam pockets, and a belted adjustment back.  While a common pattern of the period, they are still a departure from the more commonly seen patterns among living historians and reenactors.
