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. CLICK HERE to see both grades plus main pattern differences between the DEERING and SCHUYLKILL ARSENAL trousers. We also manufacture OFFICER'S TROUSERS as well.

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

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-two years and counting :-).

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

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 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
