Something important written here. And may be something more.
The joined chausses are typical for the first half of the XVth century. This design has only three seams. Two rear seams join pant legs, central rear seam joins two halves of the chausses at the backside. At the front chausses are furnished with the typical additional detail - codpiece that is attached to them with lacing. Also lacing fastens rear vents at the ankle for better fitting.
Joined chausses are the transitional form of the clothes between separate hose and trousers. They are made of tough cloth cut on the bias as the wool in this direction is more yielding and stretches almost as knitted fabric. Please note that when you keep chausses in hands they look too long and narrow as soon as put on they stretch and take the shape of the owner. There is a casing in the belt that allows adjustment of the waist for several centimeters. Chausses can also be tied up with the laces, straps or ribbons for better fixation in desired positions.
Please note that dark blue wool has a very dark shade, that may appear black under electric light indoors.

Hi, Can these be ordered custom made please? Really keen Thanks again Simon
Generally, we cannot make the chausses in custom size due to the technical reason. Please email us your measurements, we`ll see what can be done for you :)
Hello Armstreet Representatives, Thank you so much for making the purchase of my black joined hosen so smooth a process! You guys always replied within a day of me messaging you, and were helpful at every step of the way! To those buying this product, The joined hosen are awesome! They need a little bit of breaking in, as I would imagine is regular for such a fitted garment, but seeing as they are flannel wool, they have a lot of give, and are beginning to fit very well to mah' shapely man legs! :P Though the lacing seems to be made of a polyester blend (easy to replace if you're a stickler/nerd like me), the actual hosen are made of great quality flannel/melton wool, are stitched together in a very sturdy fashion, and follow a pattern very similar to the extrapolated historical patterns that we have to work with (as there aren't many extant examples of hosen to obtain a pattern from). Historically, these hosen would be suitable for a skilled labourer or guildsman, or middling merchant, as they are of fine quality material, and are richly dyed, but do not have full feet. They have what is called "stirrup" feet, which is a commonly seen trait in manuscript illuminations for the aforementioned social classes. I will be adding my own feet to them in the near future, which will make for a simple, fun sewing project to go along with my future civilian and martial pourpoint projects, but, if you plan on using footwear anyway, the quality would pass for nobles' hosen any day despite the stirrup feet! Anyway, thanks again for everything Armstreet! I will be sure to do business with you guys again, Jon Makar
Thank you for your wonderful review! We are glad the hosen fit, enjoy wearing them :) Thanks for the feedback and always welcome to ArmStreet!
Are there any plans to make this specific design of chausses available in linen? I see you have linen pants available, but in a much more basic design. The fit of these pants on the model is perfect (not baggy, very well-shaped) but for the summer months in the midwestern US wool is just too warm! If these were to be made available in linen I would buy them all!
These chausses cannot be made from lighter fabrics, as flax linen and cotton do not stretch at all, unlike the wool. We can make them from natural silk upon request, but such chausses will cost $60 extra.
Any idea when the wine dark will be back in stock?
Unfortunately to date we don't have any accurate information when the red wine wool will be available again, sorry. We will notify you by e-mail as soon as the red wine wool is available again.
