    These pants were just right for me. I previously bought(and returned) a pair from another Ren Site – but they were more of a Halloween Costume outfit company – well the pants I got were so sheer – I was afraid to use them for my 4 days at the Ren faire fencing booth. I ordered these and crossed my fingers – these are about a “middleweight” cotton and are sturdy enough to hold up to real use.The tailoring quality is pretty good unlike some other pants I looked at in Faire booths. I’d say yes – it is a safe bet to get these. They worked well tucked into my knee height boots also.

    We were able to order my husband’s entire outfit for our wedding in one place and couldn’t be happier! The hosen fit him perfectly!

    They’re comfortable pants that look good. There is a drawstring, so don’t be afraid to order a size larger to get a good length on the leg.

    I got the pants on the bigger size, glad i did. Washed them and they shrunk about 2 sizes.

    Hard to mess this up lol although I am glad a have a long tunic

    Very basic but nice looking cotton pants. Very comfortable. At 5’10” I need to hem the medium as the inseam is too long.

    These pants are great! No problems with them. I ordered a pair for me & my sons. I got a larger size for us thinking they would shrink in the wash like a previous reviewer had said. But, they didn’t shrink much. My fault, not the pants’ fault. The drawstrings took care of the extra room we now have in the waist. (I guess that means we can eat more at the Ren Fests.) They are quite comfortable & tuck into our boots nicely. I even wear them around the house because they feel light & breezy–like hospital scrubs. The material & stitching seem durable & authentic to the time period without looking like they wear made from a burlap bag. The crotch rides a little high, but you can wear them a little lower & cover it up with a shirt. The only downside I can come up with is that they are really overpriced. Otherwise, it’s a good quality product sold by the good people of Medieval Collectibles.

    I ordered these hosen with the classic knight’s shirt. Both items were true to size and did not appear to shrink when washed in cold water. I am quite satisfied with this product and recommend them to anyone starting, or adding, to their wardrobe.

    A pair of black pajama bottoms or some sort of drawstring track pants would be just as good when it comes to fit and authenticity unfortunately.

    True to size. Would be nice to have a loose fit option.

    Very nice pants. as Mr. Tony K. noted, they feel very light, and are comfortable pants. Only thing of note I can give is that if your hips are a bit on the larger side, it might be a tight fit. They do fit my fine, but I need to work a little to get the buttons (maybe time for a diet to be fair), but other than that the pants are very comfortable, light, and I feel they would pair well with many an outfit.

    These are probably one of my best pieces of garb. They are very period looking, and the button fly with drawstring waist make the super comfortable. I wear these with my longbow outfit, but they will go with lots of different outfits from different periods.

    These are actually pretty nice, decent quality pants. They dont feel “costumey” at all. Though the brown does look lighter in person than it did on my screen, but not a big deal.

    I ordered a pair of the hotel to pair with a Royal doublet that I ordered. I know that a knight is more worthy to wear something higher end than these, but they did the job, and they survived being sprinted in, while being outdoors, and constantly getting strikes with a foam great sword.
