Custom Work: Men’s Tartan Pants
An article by October 13, 2018. Last updated
It all started with a friend, a family Tartan, and a two hundred-year-old pattern from Scotland. The pattern wasn’t like a craft-store pattern either. This pattern was a drawing of an original pair of pants that were popular in the Renaissance. For one reason or another, this style of pants left popular fashion a long time ago. With that, they fell out of mind for, well, everyone. At some point in more recent history, a historian found a pair of them and drew a diagram with some brief notes.
Along with the pattern came this beautiful Tartan wool fabric.
After a bit of work figuring out how the pants should come together, Kerry got to work on the cutting and sewing. The end result is a pair of pants accurate to the era. They’re also comfortable for daily wear in reenactments and renaissance festivals.
