 "Brother, can you spare a dime?" I'm borrowing an old phrase in an effort to help raise 
  funds for a family cancer patient and former Stony Brook Company employee.

WELCOME to Stony Brook Company's website!

We are manufacturers of United States Army foot pattern enlisted man's trousers made in the WILLIAM DEERING contract and SCHUYLKILL ARSENAL depot patterns. We also manufacture OFFICER'S trousers and a limited line of civilian trousers as well. Of course, all of our trousers are made here in Oswego, New York! 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 years and counting : ).


For Union enlisted man's 100% wool "museum grade" trousers
here's the PAGE for information and an order form.

To read why we continue use the Woolrich blend fabric while also working with 100% pure woolens please click here.

Since 1976 we have 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 under SITE MAP (see left) and in their respective catagories (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.

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."

John Ruskin, Author, 1819 1900
