Based on a surviving pair of trousers worn by a member of the 17th Virginia infantry, these trousers are believed to represent an example of English import trousers. Based on issuance records, it is most likely these were issued in Q2-Q3 of 1864.


Unlike the other known pairs of Tait Contract trousers, these are extensively machine sewn, with only minor details being completed by hand. The patterning and construction is more indicative of that of the later 19thCentury and Early 20th Century and is not dissimilar to that of German WW1 methods.


The trousers are made from English sky blue and are lined in the waistband and pockets with cotton. The trousers have mule-ear pockets and back adjustment belt.
