If you’re looking for a super-cool pant with a modern fit and vintage styling, you’re in the right place. Try this great pant style, designed for light to medium weight twill or broadcloth, but just as good in denims, narrow or baby-wale corduroy, heavy washed linen, heavy poplin or moleskin.
Straight leg pants are cut with a trim but not too tight fit. Pants have buttoned back flap pockets, angled front pockets and feature small welt pockets on the right front and right back leg. Grown-on faced waist features topstitched darts and belt carriers; choose from an old-school button fly, or a more modern zipper fly.
Inspired by classic American workwear, these pants will be just right for everyday; depending on your fabric choices, these will take you to the office or the golf course, the bar or the game, traveling or simply relaxing on the weekend.
All sizes need around 2 5/8 yards / 2.40m fabric, plus around 1/4 yard/45cm of lining or light cotton for the pocket bags and waist facing. You’ll also need 1 X 5/8” or 1.5cm sew-on or tack button for the waistband.
If you want to make your pants with a zipper fly, you’ll need a 7” or 17.5cm long jeans zipper. If you want to make your pants with a button fly, you’ll need 4 X ½”1.25cm sew-on or tack buttons. Add 2 x 5/8” or 1.5cm buttons of your choice for the back pocket flaps.
Used the size medium and sewed them in leather. The style would lend itself to heavy canvas as well. Skipped the rear pockets since he wanted a plain back. Installed a #5 brass zipper instead of buttons and used 2 stainless steel #20 snaps at top. Pant looks awesome, drapes well, true to size.
Best fitting pant ever

I have been on the search for a hollywood waistband pant for men for ever. I came across Hot Patterns and purchased this one for myself and I made it in a cotton twill. I love the fit and they are so easy to make. I have started several in wool and twill. Best pattern ever. I truly would recommend these for any level of sewer.

When I saw Mr. HP Workaday pant, I knew I had to have it. When I got my pattern I knew I had to sew it. When my son tried them on I knew I'd hit gold. The pattern was easy to follow and went together quickly and looks great. Thank you Hot Patterns
