Knut the Merry Viking Pants Thorsberg inspired cotton trousers.
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.Size Chart
