Ok so 5/5 for the fabric color, texture, and construction. 2/5 for the fit. (for reference I am 6'0 205lbs and ordered a large) The waist is perfect but the legs are SUPER long, almost down to the ankle more like women's capri pants than traditional breeches cut. I will make due, as I don't want the hassle of return, but will have to find a way to get this length taken up.

I'm worried the material will snag easy. For photos they will do the trick but I can't see doing events in then.

Our Men's Satin Polyester Jacquard knee breeches, also known as colonial knickers, feature two side pockets and an adjustable elastic waistband with elastic at the bottom of the legs, typically worn just below the knee. These breeches were popular in the 18th century and worn by men, including the Founding Fathers and historical figures such as Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson. They were a symbol of America's growth and evolution in its earliest years.

Made with attention to detail, these breeches are perfect for reenactments, theater, or any other event that requires an authentic colonial period look. They can be paired with other colonial clothing and accessories to complete the look, whether you're portraying a revolutionary war hero or a colonial gentleman.

They are also great for Halloween costumes, themed parties, or any other event that requires a colonial outfit.

 What size should I order?

"Selecting the right size is crucial when ordering our garments. Please refer to the size chart provided for each individual item, as it is tailored to the specific measurements of that item. You can find the size chart as a photo in the product listing or on a separate informational page. Please follow the measurement instructions provided on the size chart.

Our garments do not follow standard modern-day sizing because they are created based on patterns from specific historical periods. The measurements we provide on the size chart represent the dimensions of the garment itself, not body measurements.

 If you're unsure about your size, measure a similar, NON-STRETCH garment you already own and love. Compare its measurements to the ones on our size chart to ensure you choose the right fit."
