Original "Ratcatcher" Moleskin Pants

Men's moleskin trousers look great in town or in the field.


Our midweight cotton moleskin trousers, slightly lighter in weight than our field moleskin pants for casual wear around town, sport the trademark brushed, suedelike hand and remain as tough as leather. Constructed in a venerable mill in England that has made the highest-quality moleskin in existence since 1901. Belt not included. Pure cotton. Dry clean. Imported of English fabric.
Even waist sizes 34, 36. Cuffed up to 33" or plain finished up to 34" at no extra charge.

    Exactly as advertised and hemmed perfectly. The fabric breathes very well and is immediately comfortable.

    I can not wait to wear these pants. However, I probably won't be wearing them until October or November; because it will be in the 90s for the next few weeks!

    Soft as a baby's behind - 1/20/2014

    Orvis' moleskin pants have been around as long as I can remember, and they're still just as good. The fabric is warm in a cold wind, and soft as a baby's behind. They are feather light but durable. They look great, and I expect many years from them. They are comfy as can be. I'm very happy with them.

    Beautifully made pants - 1/13/2014

    I bought two pairs of these pants on sale recently. As with pretty much everything Orvis makes, they are beautifully made pants. If you've never worn moleskin, they are some of the softest, warmest, most comfortable pants ever. I bought both colors available, and my only complaint is that the lighter color is a bit more orange-ey than I'm comfortable with, and might be hard to coordinate with other clothes. Other than that, a great pair of pants at an excellent price - considering the quality you're getting.

    Good Enough Moleskin Pants - 10/9/2013
    By: from Weston MA

    I was looking for really good moleskin pants in traditional colors. These aren't ."really good." They are good enough, but it doubt they'll look great and be comfortable for years. I had bought a pair last season that I returned due to wrong color. I'm keeping these. They fit fine, but I wish the legs were less baggy.

    One of a kind - 10/2/2013
    By: from Florida

    I just purchased the Ratcatcher moleskin pants and I must say that they are excellent in quality and fit. I was not sure what to expect when ordering these, but I must say if you are looking for a soft flannel type of feel and warmth, then these pants will fulfill your expectations.

    Durable Moleskin Pants - 9/29/2013

    My first experience with moleskin fabric, these Orvis pants are extremely durable. I purchased the lovat (green) color and wore them for Thanksgiving, receiving many compliments. I since use these pants for chores around the yard to fishing and even travel; no wear after five years with occasional dry cleaning.
