Our MUSEUM GRADE mounted trousers are NOT 100% entirely hand sewn. They are assembled with machine sewn main seams and machine top stitching BUT feature an EXTENSIVE amount of hand sewn finishing! The only other trousers that can superceed these in terms of volume of hand sewing would actually be an entirely hand sewn pair of trousers where every single stitch is hand pulled! Of course entirely hand sewn trousers can run in excess of $400.00! I am sure though that once you see the photos you will appreciate the amount of handwork that we put into a pair of these. Also, this amount of hand sewing TAKES TIME and turn-around on a pair of mounted trousers can average sixty (60) days easy. Please understand that BEFORE you order.

Concerning the MOUNTED SEAT REINFORCEMENT PANELS, these are sewn on by machine using a single row of stitching and with the raw edges showing. The raw edges are then flat felled to the trousers by hand using the felling stitch (there are 600+ hand felling stitches around the seat reinforcement panels alone!).

These mounted trousers feature a FULL CUT (wide) UPPER LEG as per the original mounted trousers we drafted our pattern from. Many original foot pattern trousers were cut that way as well. Now I know some gentlemen will ask about tapering the leg but no, regrettably we cannot taper the leg on these trousers as that will severely distort the fit of the reinforcement panels. Here's a photo showing a pair of original relic Federal mounted trousers with the full cut leg.

This wide cut leg is a result of a straight line inseam needed for a correct application of the mounted seat panels. So, if you do not like the full cut leg style please do NOT order these as they will indeed come with the full cut leg. We want everyone to be pleased with their purchase but if you like a tapered or narrow cut leg these trousers are definitely not for you. This full cut style leg is not the application of our own personal design whim - this is the application of correct historical cut.

PHOTOS:   Meantime, they say a picture is worth a thousand words so here are some photos of one of our Schuylkill Arsenal pattern "Museum Grade" trousers.
