Product Description

Sophisticated Gentlemen!  Make your own pants!

Clark Gable looks so amazing in a suit and you don’t!  It’s all in the cut of your trousers, my son!  Fix that now!  Buy this Reconstructing History pattern!

Based on an original pattern from the early 1940s, these trousers are made in the American style with a flat front (no pleats), back darts, a belt with loops that sits at natural waist not on your hips like modern dress pants. Leg bottoms are cuffed and measure an impressive 21″ in size 40.

All sizes (waists 28″ to 50″) come in the same envelope.  Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you’ve come to expect from Reconstructing History.

Let us help you! At Reconstructing History, we want to see you wearing the best garments you are capable of making. Email us at and we will answer any questions you might have.
