Viking Linen Pants “Eric”

Lightweight summer pants, slim fit

Our new trousers are loosely based on one of the best preserved men's clothing artifact of the migration period, the Thorsberg pants from the Thorsberg moor (Shleswig-Holstein, Germany). The footed trousers found in the bog are most likely to be dated for IVth century. We've modified the original scheme, leaving out the socks attachment and reproduced the pants of flax linen to comply with the common request on the light summer pants. To highlight the authenticity of this model, we tracked down a rare Olive color flax linen, which is more packless than usual and has a coarse texture.

The pattern of these trousers consist of four pieces: one long part for crotch area, one for back part and two for covering legs. The waist, the crotch and the back part are made of two layers of fabric to strengthen them and keep them from wearing out in the inner thigh area. Inseam leg is short in this model, due to the width of weaving looms and homespun cloth fabric in those ancient times. The legs are narrowed around the ankle and calf, and quite loose in upper leg parts and hips. There is a single seam on the back side of each leg, which is a bit offset inwards from the center. The pants are equipped with the belt loops at the waist; the belt is not included though it can be purchased separately in the store.

Please note, these trousers can be made in fixed sizes only, so please check your size here. Perfect men's pants for the Early medieval and Viking Era reenactors, considering that a similar type of the pants could have been used in later centuries as well. Highly recommended to SCAdians because of the extremely durable construction of these pants, which tend not to split up in battle.

  • Nkota 16 of January 2020:

    Could these be altered to fit a shorter inseam? 28 inch? And is that an extra charge?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hello, please select custom size option and the pants length will be adjusted according to your full height. 

  • Danny 26 of August 2019:

    Is it possible to order this or other linen or cotton pants in green? I've seen green used for the tunics, but never for pants unless it's cotton. Just trying to mentally plan my options for an upcoming costume. Thanks for your time.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Danny, yes it is possible. Please simply select green linen at the checkout. 

  • Laura 14 of August 2017:

    Is there any possibility of pants in this olive linen in a longer inseam? I'd need at least 35".


    Hi Laura! Yes, it is possible. The pants length can be adjusted according to the height of person. 

  • Olai 01 of December 2016:

    What color is the pants on the last pic(s)

    ArmStreet team:

    That is Olive Green colour.

  • Joseph Cook 31 of October 2016:

    What do u mean by full height? Im 5'6 but does you just need like leg length or is asking my full height like how tall i am?

    ArmStreet team:

    We need to know your full height from head to toe (including your neck and head).

  • Matt Alverson 27 of October 2016:

    Hey Armstreet, quick question. What is the color of the Viking linen "Eric" pants that the model in the pictures and video is wearing?

    ArmStreet team:

    The model is wearing the pants made of Olive green flax linen.

  • Joel Atkinson 11 of September 2016:

    Hey i was just wondering about the viking pants custom colours, Im looking for something more of a dark purple do any of the colours turn out like that as ive ordered things before online and the colours have been slightly different and i only found out until after the purchase?

    ArmStreet team:

    The pants can be made in different colours: Green, Blue, Yellow, Black, Natural, Brown, Wine Red, Orange, Burgundy, Midnight blue, Violet and Olive green. There is no dark purple, but maybe Burgundy colour could work.

  • Keira Carolanne 21 of July 2016:

    This whole outfit is simply fantastic! Please, could you tell me the name of this tunic as well ? Thank you!

    ArmStreet team:

    Thanks for your kind words! The model in the photo is wearing Cotton Viking Tunic “Bjorn the Pathfinder” in Burgundy cotton.

    Fits so well! They did an amazing job with the measurements!

  • Stan Choate 03 of February 2024:

    I am a man with a 32" waist, and the medium size were perfect for me. They were a little long, but the pant legs fit into my boots without a problem. The pants just barely clear my hips, and after that they fit comfortably. You will need a belt to keep them up. The feel wonderful, and they breathe very well, too. Even under an aketon, mail, and a breastplate, they feel wonderful.

  • Kate 06 of August 2023:

    I ordered Viking linen pants "Eric". They did my boyfriend well and he lived them. They do not fit my curvier thighs comfortably, although the waist size is good. Delivery was fast. Garment is well made.

  • Maz 12 of May 2023:

    If you have big thighs then the top can still be a bit tight on them, unlike with the bigger viking trousers, but they are good for cycling. They wear a little faster than the other trousers as well because there is more friction when walking with them, but they are still comfortable. I may alter the pattern with some of my own linen to fit perfectly, but they will fit well on people with typical size thighs.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Huge thanks for your feedback!

  • Mike 14 of March 2023:

    Super nice

  • Kelly  04 of April 2022:

    We ordered two pair of these in December and they were worn for the first time last weekend. My husband was unsure of the style, accustomed to wearing much more fitted pants. He wore them to a renaissance faire in 95 degree Arizona heat and was so thrilled to have them! They look great, are wonderfully made, great quality linen, very cool and comfortable...I think I may take his 2nd pair for myself!

  • Andrew Bonham 21 of September 2021:

    Amazing quality of craftsmanship and they seem like they will last a long time. They have enough room for me to grow if I become any wider.

  • Steve 06 of March 2021:

    I ordered these because I wanted comfy linen pants and these pants are wildly successful at fulfilling this need. The fit a little big (I bought a size medium and usually wear a mens 32 and I'm 5'5"), but that is good due to the linen's lack of stretch. The linen feels like it's very good quality. Great for summer. The construction is excellent. I deeply appreciate that the interior edges are finished nicely (and not just surged). They look just like the picture on the website. These pants are so comfy I've just been wearing them around the house and even to sleep in. Planning on ordering a couple more of the colour options when I have the funds to do so.

  • Agostini 26 of May 2020:

    Great communication, fast shipping, period accurate; overall I recommend this shop, thanks for everything.

  • Kathryn 16 of May 2020:

    Got these to go with my husbands "Bjorn the Pathfinder" tunic and they look great with it. The quality is excellent, the fabric breathable and cool, and they complete the outfit nicely. He says they are comfortable!

  • Stefanie 15 of May 2020:

    I wasn't sure what to expect with the fit of this unique historical style of pants, but...dang, they are so comfortable!! The linen is breathable and the roomy cut makes them perfect for hot festival days. They even work well for females like me. :) (Although if you have hips, you might want to order a custom size, as these are pretty straight-up-and-down.) I love the olive color.

  • Philip Kaiser 12 of May 2020:

    Great look, good to wear. Like Ed it so much I ordered another pair.

  • leanne 21 of October 2019:

    amazing fit design certainly women can also wear these absolutely gorgeous thankyou definitely getting another pair soon mine in yellow

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Leanne! Thank you for your nice words :)

  • Henry 15 of August 2019:

    Well made, comfortable fabric, accurate delivery time. The only complaint is that the sizing was a bit larger than expected, even after following the size chart. Some tips on how to alter it down without ruining the construction would definitely be appreciated.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Henry, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear about the misfit. We can offer you to exchange the pants for a smaller size or to take it to your local atelier to alter the pants a bit. Also, linen will shrink a little after washing so it might help. 

  • Jetty 29 of April 2019:

    Very nice Pants/Trousers. They fit me very well with a little be of extra wiggle space to leave room for weight gain. They are high quality and very comfortable to wear. The pants are customized per order, which makes it highly worth it.

  • Kyle 18 of July 2017:

    Fantastic pants. They are very breathable.

  • Dave Myatt 14 of July 2017:

    Hi there, I have ordered a pair of the Eric Viking pants in brown ( size large) and I love them. They are great! Thank you so much. Dave Myatt

  • Stacey Kelley 08 of June 2017:

    These pants are perfect, the fit and fabric are just right. And they got here just in time to give to a friend at an SCA event - he loved them!

  • Albert Schumacher 13 of December 2016:

    Just received these pants with my viking tunic. Both are fantastic. I was wondering if you could tell me the belt from your site you used in the pictures of these pants. Thank you.

    ArmStreet team:

    Thanks for your feedback, enjoy wearing them! :)
    Well, the belt from the photos is not listed on the website, but we can offer you our basic Viking belt.

  • Luna Sunflower 09 of September 2016:
