This is a DIGITAL sewing pattern for men´s cycling breeches worn about 1890.

At the beginning of the 19th century long trousers replaced the knee length breeches worn through the centuries before. They became suitable for day as for evening wear, knee length trousers continued to be worn for popular sports like riding, hunting and cycling.
