Modified example of trousers found in a bog in Germany with a tailored construction and attached feet
An extant example of trousers found in a bog near Damendorf, Rendsburg Eckerförde, Germany dated from between 100’s and 300’s CE.
This style of pants are more complicated than the regular SCA ‘poofy pants’ that many people start out with. There are some places online where the patterns can be found or even purchased. This pattern has been modified from the extant example by leaving the two triangular gussets connected to the back panel.
- Wool blends
- linen blends
- cotton blends
The Damendorf Man was found with leather shoes, leg wraps and a leather belt. This would also likely go with one or more tunics
