If you are new to these pages please read first the numbered information below "OUR STANDARD GRADE TROUSERS and SHARED COMMON FEATURES". This paragraph gives a detailed description of how the trousers are manufactured and what details both the William Deering and Schuylkill Arsenal trousers possess.

 

OUR STANDARD GRADE TROUSERS and SHARED COMMON FEATURES

1.  Made in an excellent quality 21 ounce 100% wool by Woolrich Woolen Mills. This is the same fabric
     that we use in our "Museum Grade" trousers.

2.  High waisted cut with correct sloping back body and tapered waistband.

3.  The outer edges of the woolen waistbands and fly panels are rolled back (under) slightly as found in the
     majority of original examples examined.

4.  All cuffs feature the sideseam split or vent.

5.  NARROW pattern fly panels.

6.  Depending on pattern (William Deering or Schuylkill Arsenal) the left side fly facings are either brown polished
    cotton or white cotton drill as per original examples consulted.

7.  Split rear waistband with tie-back cord and handsewn tie back grommet holes.

8.  Right side watchpocket. (The DEERING WATCH POCKET is in the trouser body/waistband seam and
     internally faced with wool. Corners are handtacked as per originals. The SCHUYLKILL ARSENAL WATCH
     POCKET
is in the trouser body/waistband seam also BUT has the watchpocket facing (like a mini vest
     pocket). Side edges on the SA watchpocket facing are handfelled)
.

9.  Sideseam pattern pocket with pocket openings starting about 1.5" BELOW the waistband seam line. The
     openings DO NOT extend right up to the waistband; that style seen on some repros today is incorrect.

10. Pockets feature hand sewn bar-tacking at the corners.

11. Handsewn bar-tacking on the cuff and waistband splits.

12. Handsewn buttonholes in fly and waistband.

13. Tin face paperbacked buttons - seven large on the waistband; five small in the fly.
     PLEASE NOTE: It is evident based on the majority of surviving relic Federal trousers that the FOUR button
     system for suspender attachment was the most common - one per side on the front and one per side on
     the back. We utilize SIX buttons for suspender attachment on our trousers solely out of convenience for
     our customers, the majority of which have suspenders set up for a six point (6 button) attachment. If you
     would prefer your trousers to have the FOUR button suspender set up, simply let us know and we will be
     happy to accomodate.

14. Natural 100% cotton drill (NOT muslin!) is used for pocket inserts, waistband facings and fly facings in our      Schuylkill Arsenal trousers. It is the very same for our William Deering trousers except that brown polished
     cotton is used for the two left side fly facings.

15. Sewn entirely in dark blue thread.


We are asked very often - "Can the differences between the Standard Grade trousers and the Museum Grade trousers be seen from the outside?"

To that very good question we reply - "If two gentlemen stood side by side and one was wearing our Standard Grade trousers and the other our Museum Grade trousers, externally the two trousers are almost identical. Only upon an INTERNAL inspection of the trousers do the construction differences between the two become obvious.
