Trousers & Pantaloons

I wear cloth trousers & pantaloons as well as leather.  These have either a drop front or a buttoned French fly as shown in the picture.  Rex Allen Norman in his 1837 sketch book says “cloth trousers were….mostly in blue”.  The loops on the pantaloons make putting my boots on over my pants a lot easier!
