Broadfall / Drop Front Civilian Trousers / Pants
     Drop front (wide fall/broad fall) trousers are the earlier style of pant closure. This is the same type of closure that is used on U.S. Navy Pants. They are especially good for use in 1840's - 1850's (including the California Gold Rush 49er's) impressions for civilians and military, although some would have been seen during the American Civil War and possibly after. Period trousers also have a 1" higher rise than today's pants and should be worn loose.

    These pants have double needle stitching (like Levi's) and therefore are not 100% authentic. Standard inseam is 34". They are left un-hemmed, for you to hem as needed. They come in:

  Natural:  9 ounce natural (unbleached) 100% cotton drill. All sizes with std 34" in-seam are Normally in Stock.
  Grey, Dark: 10 ounce 100% cotton denim. All sizes with std 34" in-seam are Normally in Stock.
  Black: 14 ounce 100% cotton denim with all black threads (like period denim). All sizes with std 34" in-seam are Normally in Stock.
  Grey Wool: Confederate grey heavy weight wool. Special Order.
  Black Wool: Black heavy weight wool. Special Order.

    See also M1833 Summer Enlisted Trousers in Foot or Mounted style. They can be found in the Mexican War section of our web site.

    If we are out of a "Normally in Sock" Size (which happens at times) and "Special Order" Styles take 4 to 6 weeks for delivery. If you need a "Normally in Stock" Size in a hurry, call first to make sure it is in stock.
