I am very excited to release a Men’s version of the Hudson pant today. Since releasing the women’s and also the children’s versions, I have had a lot of requests for a similar pattern for men.
Like the other versions, the Men’s Hudson Pant has an elastic / drawstring waist and front pockets. There is a little extra room around the hips and crotch, tapering down to a skinnier leg at the ankle. I kept the construction of this pattern almost exactly like the others, keeping notches, and details in the same place. If you have already made a pair for yourself or a child, then these will be an even easier sew for you.
The sizing for this pant is waist sizes 28 through 42. I highly recommend using actual measurements and not ready-to-wear sizing to choose what size to cut. Just like in women’s clothing, ready-to-wear sizing is often skewed and does not reflect actual waist measurements.
The recommended fabric for this pattern is medium to heavy weight knits such as french terry, ponte, and sweatshirt knit with a suggested stretch of 40% – 75%. The navy sweatshirt knit above was purchased at Metro in NYC and the dark grey french terry was bought on a shopping trip in Montreal with Closet Case Files. I have found that for men you really do want to avoid lighter weight knits such as interlock as they tend to look a little more feminine.
I will not be doing a sewalong for the Men’s Hudson Pants as they are so similar to the other versions, but I will be back with some fabric and ready-to-wear inspiration in a couple of days. I hope that you are as excited about this pattern as I am. Please let me know if you have any questions. If you would like to purchase the pattern you can do so here.
