Breeches should come to the bottom of the knee. These are close fitting at the knee with a full seat which is accurate to the period.
Breeches are offered with either the broad fall (from hip to hip) or narrow fall front and are made using lightweight civilian wools and other fabrics. Lighter colors are the norm for this time period.
These breeches are without any pockets as was common during this time period.
Breeches are pants that button or buckle either just above or just below the knee. Below the knee is by far the most common. The lower part of the leg was covered with knitted stockings. (see MEN'S SOCKS COLONIAL as an option)
Because the breeches are finished at the knee, an inseam measurement is needed to the bottom of the knee. See Inseam length below.
Buttons are your choice of either natural bone or pewter. The single button front is standard with double button front offered as an option. Back belt with buckle is available as an option for adjustment of waist size.
