Pattern is for civilian style button fly trousers that could have been worn after about 1840. It was around this time that the use of a drop front was discontinued in favor of a button fly. The pattern includes three styles of pocket opening: Side (Slash) Pocket, Mule-ear Pocket, Modified Slash Pocket.

These trousers can be used for formal or casual wear depending on the fabric chosen. Everyday or work trousers would have been looser fitting with a straight hem. Formal or dress trousers were slightly more tailored with a curved hem and the tailored style slash or side pockets.

The pattern includes a choice of hemlines for the front of the trouser; the curved line being designed to curve over the front of the boot and being more tailored than the straight line. Tips for handling wool are also included.
