WELCOME to Stony Brook Company's website!

We are manufacturers of United States Army FOOT pattern enlisted man's trousers. Our "Museum Grade" trousers are made in the WILLIAM DEERING contract pattern and our "Standard Grade" trousers are made in the SCHUYLKILL ARSENAL depot pattern.

We also manufacture OFFICER'S trousers. See our officer's trousers page in the site menu.

CIVILIAN TROUSERS: We do get numerous requests for civilian pattern trousers. Please e-mail me and we can discuss the options and details available.

CURRENT DELIVERY TIME: Given that we are extremely busy in the shop please allow a minimum of eight weeks on individual "Standard Grade" trouser orders. For current delivery time on group orders please e-mail me.

We have been an active part of the Civil War reenactment community since January 1968 and in service as a uniform manufacturer since July of 1974 (forty-four years and counting :-).


Since 1976 we have also served as a commission merchant to the hobby and maintain a section on this site for new and used customer consigned items. These items can be found under the Consignments #1, #2 and #3 links (see left) and in their respective categories (coats, trousers, equipment, etc.). For our efforts on behalf of both buyers and sellers we have been classified as the PREMIER consignment service to the hobby.

CONSIGNMENTS MARQUEE

We will soon be replacing the below consignments marquee menu with a link to a regular page which will allow a much quicker "at a glance" review for scheduled postings, last updating, latest additions, due in soon, etc. We will also be moving all our consignment page links (in this pages left side site menu) to this new consginments page as well.

ALSO, as announced a couple months ago we will be breaking up some of the larger categories and moving some listings to new pages. Everything will be laid out for easy navigation on the new consignments main page (or menu). We look to make these changes and launch the new consignments section by April 27th or 28th at the latest.

Our favorite Victorian business philosophy which serves well even today
"The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot ... it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder,
it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better."
