Men's Narrow Fall Breeches c. 1790-1820

$18.00

Pattern by: Laughing Moon

Pattern for all waist sizes 28"-56"

Made in the USA


This late style breeches pattern has a narrow fall front opening, with side frog pockets and watch pocket. They can be cut long, to reach to the calf, or short, ending just under the knee. The front fall closes with two buttons whereas the waistband closes in front with three buttons. Two more buttons are included to hold the side pockets closed. The front has two braces (suspender) buttons. The backs of the breeches have a very long rise and the tops are gathered into the back of the waistband. The center back has a gusset where fit may be adjusted and two buttons for the braces (suspenders). The breeches have leg openings that are faced and slightly turned to the front of the legs. These leg openings close with buttons and a tie, and are bound with a narrow band. The full leg lining is optional, but as constructed, the waistband, fall, leg openings, and gusset will still need to be lined. The breeches are interfaced wherever there are buttons or buttonholes. Breeches were worn for day or evening, formal or informal. In The Proceedings of the Old Bailey, London of 1802, in a theft trial a witness said "I had my watch in my breeches pocket, inside of my fob pocket".
