Pirate Breeches (Slops)
No self-respecting buccaneer would sign articles without 'em. Canvas, two pockets (one for doubloons, one for pieces of eight), very full in the leg and fashionably frayed; buttoned fly. Inseam approximately 13".
The waistband laces in the back, giving an adjustable range of at least 6". State your waist size; your breeches will have that size as their midpoint. (If you need a size not on the list, contact us to place a special order.)
The breeches are washed to remove shrinkage and fray the hems, so if you've chosen a colored canvas, expect some fading and streaking.
For a well-travelled look, the white canvas can be tea stained, as pictured.
Cleaning instructions: keelhaul; hang from yardarm in westerly breeze.
Broadcloth: Cotton/polyester blend, shirtweight. Does not wrinkle, shrink or fade. Permanent press (warm wash, tumble dry low heat, remove promptly). Black, red, burgundy, navy, hunter, brown.
Brocade: Cotton plus various synthetic fibers, with same-color woven patterns, which will vary. Sturdy weight. Dry clean. Blue, hunter, burgundy.
Canvas: Also called Duck Cloth. Stout cotton fabric with a coarse weave. Black, white, red, brown, or hunter green. Will fade like jeans. Cold wash, tumble dry low heat or line dry.
Fleece: Synthetic with velour-like drape; popular for outerwear. Good, practical substitute for wool. Black, burgundy, hunter green. Check for color availability before ordering; can vary with season. Washable, but dry cleaning is recommended to preserve the shape of capes.
Muslin: Garment-quality, 100% cotton (not coarse utility muslin). Cold wash, line dry recommended. White or natural.
Poplin: A cotton/polyester blend that does not wrinkle, shrink or fade. Heavier than shirtweight. Permanent press (warm wash, tumble dry low heat, remove promptly). Black, red, burgundy, navy, hunter.
Suede Cloth: A heavy, woven suede-like cloth of 100% polyester. Dry cleaning recommended.
Wool: A natural fiber from sheep; wool blends include man-made fibers of various kinds. Holds colors well. Dry cleaning is recommended, but may be hand washed in cold water and dried flat. Do not wring. Never use hot water or a dryer. For seasonal storage, clean first and use the moth repellent of your choice.
