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.

Shopping List

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.

All fabric amounts are for 60”/150cm wide fabric.

    Great fitting pant

    Published by Kate on 1st Dec 2018

    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
