White Breeches

Knee breeches were a common pant in the 18th century, and are appropriate for French and Indian War through the American Revolution. These are made of a medium weight cotton and fit true to waist size in inches. 

Additional sizing information:

The size of the breeches is in inches with the gusset completely closed. In other words, the size is the smallest the waist will go. For example, if your measurement was 37 inches, you would wear a size 36 breeches. 

To find this number, measure around your waist where the breeches will sit (should be between the top of your jeans and your belly button).

We do not recommend dying these, but if you do wish to dye them and would like advice, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Very good overall

    Very well made, for the most part and material is comfortable for a long day's use. Only issue was one of the central buttons fell off when putting on the breeches for the first time. White is tricky to keep clean, but washed up easily.

    Breeches for Mt. Harmon

    The 2 fellows (brothers, both in the Navy now) that wore the britches worked them out hard, wrestling in addition to spending a weekend reenacting at Mt. Harmon. The britches survived and, amazingly, came clean after about 1/2 bottle of Shout was applied to them. Something another company does that I'd love you to consider, is sew 2 spare buttons into the inside, for when they get lost.

    White breeches

    Very quick from order to delivery. Breaches fit great. Buttons on the other hand look like they were on a bench grinder but over all happy with the service

    White Breeches

    Very good. When received there was a small black spot on the breeches. Did not choose to return because they will no doubt get dirty during use but did not expect them to arrive "pre-spotted". Otherwise, very pleased with quality and shipping.

    white breeches

    perfect fit - will coordinate with our Clark's Regimental uniform - good value for the money - button holes a little ragged but I will just sew the button holes myself again.

    The fit on these breeches is exactly as described, and well constructed Measure your waist and if your belly if bigger, go with that since these are worn high, Maybe go one size bigger.

    great quality

    I've purchased several of these breeches and am very very pleased with them fine quality and great fit, additionally for those interested or wondering they dye great, being white they take very well to a tanish khaki as well as Navy blue, and Red for a 1750's British infantry and the tan-ish color fits perfect for Virginia early rev war use... Will definitely get more! Great results with regular rite dye

    Not too good

    After an extensive communication concerning buying Breeches off the rack in a pinch I ordered a pair after being told they would fit no problem..the said item ,,made in Pakistan,,not well fitted poorly made buttons that all but one fell of first day of wear,,and the problem that was stated in the beginning of the purchase concerning the twist in the actual pattern causing the closing knee buttons to align straight over the knee happened...with no recourse than to wear them and sew the all the buttons on again throughtout the weekend....The Waistcoat on the other hand is great and fit as it should.....lesson learned as I knew in the beginning...you cant buy Breeches off the rack............especially if they are imported...

    Fantastic Breeches!

    Thank you Samson Historical for really fantastic pair of breeches! They really feel great and they fit like a glove! I had no issues with them and they'll be great for my reenactment needs. Thank you again. Great job!

    Quality and Careful detail!

    Well made! Perfect for re-enactment of the 18th century. Many levels beyond "costume quality". My brothers in the Sons of the American Revolution have found a new period clothing outlet. The price point is perfect. Very well done!
