We are thrilled to annouce the arrival of our 40s inspired swing pants! These have been painstakenly researched and are adapted from a late 30s pattern. With a few tweaks here and there, the pattern has been altered enough to fit the modern woman and our modern eye without compromising the vintage details.

High waisted with four lovely quality shell buttons on the left. Wide leg with turn-up at the bottom. So comfy and perfect for dancing!

These are a mid weight fabric, warm but breatheable. Rayon/poly mix with a little bit of spandex for stretch, hand wash recommended.

Inside leg 31 inches, select size by natural waist measurements. For custom length orders please click here

Made in the UK

These trousers are high waisted - going approx 1 inch above natural waist. Trousers can be harder to fit people due to there being extra measurements to consider such as body length as well as waist, hip and thigh. However, this style has proved very popular and seems to fit people well.

The leg width isnt as wide as our 30s styles (fabric wasnt as readily available in the 40s!) but measures 56cms at the widest leg width part on our size 10.

So - we advise to choose by waist size but also to consider hip and your thigh measurement. This is not a great style for pear shapes but great for pillar, inverted triangles.

Our trousers are made with fabric that has a touch of stretch in it. This means that there is some margin if your measurements dont come up exactly like our table below.

I love the look and feel of these and couldn't wait to wear them. I already have the limited edition navy pinstripe and brown pinstripe. I've worn them once and noticed that there is already piling on the side I carry my bag - which could only be from my journey to and from work. This is so disappointing. Do you have any tips for removing the piling please as they are the best fitting style of trousers?
