Very comfortable and durable trousers made in herringbone pattern wool. These trousers were common among the Norse before and throughout the Viking Age. This is evident on picture stones, contemporary art and archaeological finds (such as in Hedeby and Birka). Wear them preferably with leg wraps. 

  • Based on historical sources
  • Material: Wool blend (50% wool, 50% polyester)
  • Color: Grey
  • The trousers come with a drawstring at the waist.
  • Neither leg wraps nor shoes included.

"A beloved child has many names" is a Swedish proverb that fits quite well to these trousers. Known as "baggy pants", "pösbyxor", "rus trousers" etc, we simply refer to them as "high breeches" (Old Norse: hábrók) which is the name used for them in the Icelandic saga Hauk Hábrók's Tale."
