Testing, testing: True Bias Men's Hudson Pant


These are my tester version of the Men's Hudson Pant, the manly version of everybody's favorite Hudson Pant from True Bias.




I was a bit worried that Tim wouldn't like them. It's not a style of pants that he wears normally, but once he put them on, I wasn't sure he would take them off.


The fabric is cranberry french terry from Fashion Fabrics Club (which I also used for this Lane Raglan sweatshirt a few months ago). I might regret using it since the recovery is not great, but the weight was perfect for these pants.


My waist tie here is one I salvaged from a pair of my old pajama pants that had bitten the dust.


The Men's Hudson Pant is super easy to sew up, just like the Hudson Pant for women.


Please note that these are the tester version of the Men's Hudson Pant, and some fit changes have been made to the pattern since testing, including taking some extra fabric from the back crotch/thigh.


Also note: these pictures were taken on the day of the one Mets win during the World Series, hence Tim's happy face and Mets paraphernalia. If you run across him, don't mention the World Series to him or you will face his wrath.

  1. These photos are fantastic - the men's version of the Hudson pants with the men's version of blog photos. Ha! I was wondering if John would like this style as they are a bit skinnier than he normally wears, but now that I am seeing them on men around the sewing blogs - I think I better snap this pattern up! Tim looks great and super comfy!

    1. Thanks, Heather! There were a couple changes made to the pattern since testing that will likely make them skinnier than they appear in these photos, but not too skinny! Tim loves them. He was wearing them yesterday for lounging.

    1. :-) It's a bribe/photo prop. Taking blog photos is not his favorite. The photos always turn out better if he has a prop!

  3. I like the way Tim handles blog photos! I might have to try that ... oh wait, I already have, haven't I? LOL! Love it. These pants look mighty comfy. I was also wondering if they would be as tapered as the womens' version but they don't seem to be. My husband is allergic to anything that seems even a little "hipster" to him, and skinny pants of all kind fit that description for him.

    1. Ha ha, yes, he must be bribed for photos like a child ;-) The men's hudsons are definitely not as skinny as the women's, but they are skinnier than your average sweatpants, I think. And the final pattern is a bit skinnier than this tester version- some extra fabric was taken out from the back thigh.
