The cut of the breeches is okay, but they are not 'knee breeches' unless you're a giant. I had to cut off about 5 inches.

In addition to being a popular choice for trousers during the 1700s, breeches were also worn by men as part of their formal and casual attire. They were often referred to as colonial knickers, as they covered the body from the waist down to the knee.

These Men’s Polyester Gaberdine knee breeches are a modern take on this historical style of clothing. They include features such as two side pockets and an adjustable elastic waistband for a comfortable fit, and elastic at the bottom of both legs for adjustability.

It is important to note that these breeches were worn by all colonial men, including famous figures such as the Founding Fathers, Alexander Hamilton, and Thomas Jefferson. A symbol of America's growth and evolution in its early years, and a nod to the country's rich history.

They can be paired with a wide selection of colonial clothing parts and accessories to create a personalized colonial period outfit, perfect for historical reenactments, theater productions, or any other occasions where you want to channel a touch of colonial style.

 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."
