Perhaps living a simpler life than his friends, Knut takes joy in the small things and has little time for the more serious of folk who might ask him questions like “how did you get out here?” and “where are your shoes?”. No, Knut cares not for axes and swords, or gambling, or even travelling… instead he revels in the season’s first snow, good vodka, and well fitted pants. Maybe we should all be more like Knut.
These pants are well fitted, indeed! These are the cotton version of our popular Eric Viking Pants, and are a little bit more robust than their linen counterpart. Constructed from a beautiful cotton, they have great texture and look so good you could almost wear them outside of a medieval setting! That being said, they do have a historical basis: we designed them based on the Thorsberg moor find in Germany. Thought to have been worn in the IV century, these Dark Age pants are thought to have a low crotch and tight fit due to the size of the looms cloth was woven on at the time. Originally, these pants were likely to have been made of wool, and included socks which made them comparable to a hose-type garment. For ease of wear, we have removed the foot bits so that you can just wear your modern socks with them.
All seams on this garment are well finished and the crotch and bottom area are double layered for durability, so they’ll surely be a great addition to your wardrobe. These pants also include belt loops, so they can be worn with your favorite belt - may that be a piece of rope or something fancier. If you aren’t ready (or haven’t had enough vodka…) to go barefoot in these pants, they look great with mid calf boots or winningas (viking style leg wraps) and shorter shoes. If you do plan on going on long adventures in the woods, we recommend looking at our “Ragnvaldur the Traveller” Pants: they’re made to the same pattern but out of more water-resistant fabric, so you won’t get quite as soggy.
Please note that these pants are manufactured in fixed sizes only, so please take a look at our measurement chart to ensure you’re selecting the right size.To check how to measure yourself please click here.

I’m looking for a shirt similar to what the model is wearing in the picture; do you sell that particular item or anything similar?
Hi! Yes, the tunic is available for purchase here.
These pants fit very nice. I love the free movement that I have with them. We were concerned they wouldnt fit very well but I think out of the two pairs of pants I ordered these ones fit the best. I have a few ideas why. Thanks for the clothes. I got these, Ragnvaldur the Traveller boots, the under tunic and Eric the Scout tunic.
If buying multiple items, is shipping combined, or is it per item of the order?
Hi Dennis! Shipping charge is combined/reduced automatically at the checkout.
Hi! Are you planning to release a set of winningas to complement your Viking/Saxon range of pants?
Hello, thank you for your question. We have linen pants with winningas included.
You can order those winningas separately, just contact our support.
A quick question: Are the seams hand finished or machine finished, and if machine finished, are the inseams sewn on the inside to hide the machine stitching? I would like to use these for reenactments. Thank you.
Hi! The seams are machine finished and hidden inside.
