Pirate Trousers ?

9 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a place where I can buy period correct style trousers for myself and my crew. I've looked everywhere, to no avail, and I thought that this would be the place to ask. When I say trousers, I mean something like what is worn by Anne Bonny or Edward Teach in their respective pictures from that era. Any and all help would be MOST appreciated!

I've looked at Jas Townsend, and they don't have anything from the 18th century like that. The closest thing, and I even asked them after I found them, are their fly front breeches from their mens 19th century collection. That's what I was looking at, and they did say that they should work, but I wanted another opinion.

One thing to really be cautious of, is even when you can find something that claims to be correct.... it is more often than not "drop front". "Drop front" style breeches, trousers, and slops all are from the later half of the 18th century... make sure if you are buying instead of making that you get something with a straight button fly (also referred to as "French fly)

Have you tried http://www.reconstructinghistory.com/ ?

They've got a great variety of patterns if you do end up trying to sew it yourself. You might also contact them and see if they would sew it for you, though I'm not sure if they have the time for that these days. Can't hurt to ask!
