 The trousers are based on a surviving pair worn by Alfred E. Krebs of the Tobin's Tennessee Light Artillery Battery. Based on the background of the enlistment, it is believed they were brought from home at his enlistment in September of 1864 at Fort Blakelely (Mobile, Alabama). 


The trousers are made from a gray wool jean and are completely lined in cotton osanburg. The trousers patterning is completely civilian in style, with a lack of a back waistband, watch pocket, mule-ear pockets (connected directly to the body of the trousers), and other common civilian construction methods. The trousers are heavily machine sewn, with only minor details being completed by hand. The reproductions replicates each of these noted features.
