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 very nice medium weight 80/20 linen cotton with matching covered buttons and fit true to waist size in inches.
Additional sizing information:
The size of the breeches is in inches with the gusset completely closed. To find your size, measure around your waist where the breeches will sit. Then enter that number below to verify your size.

My husband bought these to wear when attending a recent event with me. He’s not used to the fit of 18th century breeches and has gained a little weight, and he found the fit a tad bigger than he found comfortable. In time I’ll alter the fit a little to accommodate him. Otherwise he looked great and we received numerous compliments on his attire.
For warmer weather these linen breeches are great! Good tailoring.
My advice is to order your natural waist size and do not think you need to order up in size to be safe. If you measure accurately size stated online will fit.
The back of the pants tie and adjust a bit smaller to larger than stated size and if you order bigger than you measure there is a good chance you'll have to gather in the cloth and re-adjust the knee buttons to close the material and keep your knees from rattling around in your breeches when fully buttoned. (like I just had to! Lol)
The breeches' material itself is very comfortable against the skin even though unlined and much cooler than wool. Very good price for the quality I received.
Will probably buy another when offered in different color than brown.
