I will try and write a blog post in english 🙂
There are small pieces of broken dimond twill and lozenge twill from the harbour in viking age Haithabu. Inga Hägg identifies them as pants of the same style as the much older pants from Thorsbjerg.
The fragments and the sketches show pieces of the pants upper part.
These are the “Thorsbjerg pants” and they are very narrow and tricky to measure to fit your body. There are patterns to buy and also on Pinterest.
This is custom made pants, but you can see at the bottom how I laid out the pieces on the fabric. The dotted line is around the thigh. I usually try in a cheap fabric. But I always sweat when cutting!
It is a mystery to me how they came up with these pants!!! The good thing if you are riding on horseback is that the seem will not hurt your inner thigh.

Nille Glaesel has a good pattern in “Viking, dress, garments, clothing” (eventhough I have used one more square) and also a new book for the “Viking warrior clothing”.
